If you are thinking of taking the plunge into adventure, then I would definitely recommend cage diving with White Sharks. In choosing which agency to go with, in November 2016, I reviewed all of the possible providers and decided upon White Shark Projects for several reasons. Upon looking at their web-page and in communicating with the team their passion for... More

Was in South Africa for nearly a month and this was my favourite part of the trip. They tell you that there is no Guarantee to see sharks which is fair enough as they are wild creatures. But we saw SEVEN great whites in total. Maybe we got lucky. I got to go into the water twice. Probably about 30... More

It was very good opportunity to see the sharks in the middle of the Ocean and perfect security procedures that have been done for us, really great team and nice idea for the cage diving for shark capturing. u have to bring a water proof camera to catch very rare nice shots.

It is clear that this company have passion for sharks and other animals and are more than willing to inform people about the real statistics and facts about sharks. I would recommend this to any one who even have a slight interest in sharks or conservation in general. Just a friendly warning that you might need to stick up on... More

Was disappointed overall. So called 'researchers' were just kids, no useful information, and just sat on the top of the boat taking up the good seats and talking about partying. The rest of the crew was nice enough but it just felt very rushed. The cage was very very disappointing, only saw a couple shadows of great white sharks while... More

What an amazing adventure! We started off the day by getting a light lunch and our safety briefing on land before boarding. Then you have about a 15 min boat ride depending on the time of year (the great whites travel to a few different locations). Once you get out to the location, they take the first 6 volunteers, get...

Very excited to go and see some sharks but I was also a bit apprehensive of choosing the right company from what I had read online. However this company over delivered in terms of what i was expecting. From arrival with a great gentle breakfast, everything was well organised getting onto the boat. Even on the way out we had...

This is a nice experience. Be ready for some rough water while putting on a wet suit. The crew members are very knowledge. You can get some really great pictures. And there were plenty of sharks.
