In successful operation for more than 25 years, White Shark Ventures were the founders of shark cage diving in Gansbaai. Our tours are not only highly educational, as we also participate in documenting valuable research information on great white sharks, made available to Government Researchers and various Marine Biologists world-wide. Our directors and employees are passionate about conservation and rehabilitation of all wildlife species. Our company were the founders of the Great White Shark Protection Foundation, a body dedicated to the protection and preservation of great white sharks globally. Join us for the ultimate experience…
