The mini bus with people from Cape Town didnt arrive untill 10.15 then we spent 30 mins just sitting around waiting with no explanation to what we were waiting for. When we eventually got out there. They crammed 5 people into the cage,... More

Okay... it all started when we were doing some research trying to find a good and reliable company to dive with. We found this company that had breathing tubes and one of the sturdiest/safest cages we have seen... Me, my girlfriend and my sister booked it. They picked us up at around 8 in the morning in an okay looking... More

We did shark cage diving with White Shark Adventures in early September and were so fortunate that the weather cleared up the week of our dive! We were a little worried because weather and sharks they cannot control.

We had a very early pick up time of 4am and quite a long drive outside of Cape Town, but it meant we didn't lose a whole day.
