          It was fun!
          Whole trip was well organized. Stuff was professional and friendly. We didn't see the great white but there were other sharks. You don't need to do the hookah because it doesn't give you advantage, you can easly go with the standard option. I recommend that tour, it was really fun :)

          Shark Experiences
          At April 9th I went together with my daughter with "White Shark Diving" (Gansbaai). It was an impressing experience. The boat is very fast and comfortable, we had good weather and we saw lots of Sharks. About 20 sharks we saw.- The Great White is not existing at these kind of tours - so I would call it "Shark Diving Experience" - to be honest. So the disappointment would not be there. You really have to see sharks. That is realistic. But no Whites at all in this year until now.

          So many sharks!
          Wow! What an amazing experience! We have a school of 7 bronze whaler shark with us the whole time. I loved using the air supply so I didn’t have to bob up and down the whole time. Everyone got about 20 minutes in the cage with sharks around the whole time!

          Great time shark diving
          Had a really good time. Saw plenty of sharks and made great memories. Felt safe and secure in the boat the whole time, like everyone had been doing this for years. I recommend doing the hookah dive, it allows you to sit under the water and wait for the sharks to swim by.

          Incredible!
          Had an amazing trip today - did the hookah air supply tour and was well worth the little extra - u could settle under the water and just quietly watch these amazing creatures up close. At the end we got back in the cage without the air supply and experience no where near as good - highly recommend - knowledgeable guide and crew - superb!

          Amazing experience! I was traveling with a family member with mobility issues and they were extremely accommodating. Tasha, Tien (spelling?) and Jeff were all awesome and would gladly go again! We saw some 24 sharks and even whales on the trip, was a highlight experience

          Amazing experience! Food served was top quality, Tiaan was an amazing guide who seems to have alot of knowledge about the local marine ecosystem. Seeing all the Bronze Whaler sharks up close was an experience you wouldn't want to miss.

          Great day with the sharks
          Not sure the exact package we picked but it was amazing. We were looked after from the moment we arrived by the friendly and extremely knowledgeable crew. We were fed before and after the trip and drinks etc provided on board. We saw 19 sharks in total on our dive with dome of them brushing right across the cage. It was an incredible experience for me and my family and one I will not forget. Thanks to the while team for looking after us and providing us with such a great experience.

        Come prepared for the best cage diving you are ever likely to experience. My entire family loves the crew to bits. They tended to our every need and they were incredibly knowledgeable about these lovely sea creatures. They seem to have an almost mystical ability to attract sharks, so we saw sharks up close and personal since we got into the cage until we got out. I was only one of the many special needs clients they have had over the years and I was treated with so much kindness an professionalism that I was able to enjoy every bit of the experience with my family. They promised to bend over backwards for me and they truly did. Highly recommended.

        Dear Madelaine It was an absolute pleasure having you all on board. Thank you so much for your absolutely awesome and kind review and for choosing White Shark Diving Company in order to make your dream of meeting these magnificent sharks, come true. Because of the fact that we take less passengers than most other boats, it makes for a much more personalised experience and our staff and crew have more time available in order to share their knowledge of these amazing wildlife with our valued guests. With your special needs in mind, we're glad that our booking staff managed to pull out all the stops and assist you with your prior requests and that our staff and crew were always on hand in order to make you comfortable and safe at all times during your time with us. We believe that no request is too big or too small and with obvious safety issues always in mind, will do anything humanly possible in order to make someone's dream of meeting these magnificent sharks, a reality. Although our crew try their utmost in order to attract the sharks to the boat, we are dealing with wild animals and Mother Nature which are unpredictable, but we are so glad that their efforts paid off during your trip with us and that you had the opportunity to meet the sharks up close and personal in their natural environment. As you've experienced, everyone in our team absolutely love interacting with our guests and the wildlife we encounter and are extremely professional and passionate about the conservation and protection of sharks. Many thanks once again for your review and recommendation as it certainly helps in lifting our spirits during these trying Covid-19 times.

        The shark diving experience was spectacular. The staff was very helpful in explaining all the safety guidelines, interesting information about the sharks and creating a wonderful video about the day. We saw 9 copper sharks that were very beautiful and graceful. It was truly a privilege to be able to see these magnificent animals in their habitat. The team at White Shark Diving Co. are excellent guides and I highly recommend them for your next shark viewing experience in Gansbaai, South Africa.

        The best part was the experience in the cage being so close to the sharks. The service offered from both Paul's - guide and Tour organizer was the best I have received in a long time.
        This was a awesome company to deal with from booking right until the end. I would strongly recommend them to anyone interested in shark cage diving.

        What an amazing day! Amazing to see over 25 bronzer whales right up close, crew did a brilliant job and obviously take such care (conservation and animal welfare is clearly very high on their priorities). While the adrenaline was very high, never did we once feel unsafe which was brilliant. The two Pauls were great, really friendly feel - and a delicious meal waiting for us on return! Would 100% recommend White Shark Diving company to anyone.

        This was super amazing. From the bookings support from Tracy, up until the check-in morning with Paul (1) all the way to diving and back was so wonderful. We spotted 12 Bronze whaler sharks, 2 sting rays and had an amazing crew supporting all on deck. They all were so professional, polite and we all felt so safe during during the whole adventure.

        Afterwards Paul (2) presented a video of the trip, that one can buy. Which was worth buying. Do consider. Also, the Lasagne was super delicious. Just what you need after a very early morning out on sea and breakfast.

        I would highly recommend this. Thank you all and both Paul's and crew. This was so worth it.

        Everything from waiting at check-in with coffee and rusk, all the way to ending with Lasagne and video viewing is top rated. Well done. Money well spent.

        My son and I have just returned from a fantastic holiday in South Africa today, 23-01-20. The highlight of the holiday was undoubtably the trip out to sea with the White Shark Diving Company, and if you have never done it, add it to your bucket list, you won’t regret it.
        Plenty of shark action throughout the day, as well as stingrays and sea lions. The staff ever helpful with warm drinks, camera advice, and keeping the wildlife close to the cage making for great photo opportunities.
        A very special thanks to Paul Hammann in client services for making the whole process of booking during suitable weather conditions so simple. A five star experience, and memories to last a lifetime. Thanks Paul. 👍👍

        I am NO "water baby" and was really scared but decided to spoil my husband, confront my fears of the deep and sharks (which I really admire but am so scared of) and book a trip to go shark cage diving. From the moment I enquired till eventually booking and then going on the trip itself, I was encouraged, given advice and reassured. Lynn handled everything and assured me that I will be taken care of and that I will never forget this experience and she was 100% right! Everything ran smoothly, I felt that everyone knew what they were doing and it was simply awesome! To see these, often misunderstood, animal sin their natural surroundings was simply fantastic. I encourage anyone to do this, it really is a memory that will stay with you forever!

        very non interested hosts. not a welcoming talk with us or later on. they talked about a breakfast and a lunch. you could not really call it that. and you had to grab everything yourself, even the lasagna that was our lunch was on a tray with all the others and you had to sit down on a table that was not been made ready for food or anything. no choices in drinks, just a jar of juice and help yourself. this is so far from all the spontanious and helpfull people we have met during other excursions. The girl who was leading the trip loved to hear herself talking and was not one inch interested in her guests. They call it white shark diving but there are nooooo white sharks. They could have told that before we booked this trip, that would have been honest. Brown sharhs we have seen but they only make horizontal moves so they will not jump out of the water like white sharks. very long transfer, only 1 hour on the water. waist of our time and money

        Incredible! Staff was amazing, and made us feel so safe and comfortable. We were nervous at first, but the cage is very secure, and we never felt threatened once we were underwater... only in awe of their beauty! They get so close, and we made eye contact! Eeeek! No great whites for us-- just bronze whaler sharks, but they were so majestic. We used a regulator to breathe underwater while we gazed submerged.

        So grateful for this experience. The videographer/guide from Alabama was awesome!

        Loved our time with White Shark Diving Company!

        My mom always wanted to do the shark cage diving and we decided to surprise her for her 60th birthday. The crew was so WARM, WELCOMING, and EXCEPTIONAL. They went the extra mile and sang for my mom & even baked her yummy chocolate cupcakes. It is by far good value for money and is very informative. I would definitely go back and would highly recommend them. I've had the opportunity to go cage diving before and this surpassed my previous experience!!

        Dear Stacy Thank you for your recommendation, your kind review and for joining us on your mom's very special day. It's great to know that you and your family had an absolutely amazing time with us and that we could provide you with the opportunity of meeting these awesome sharks in its natural habitat. Our friendly and passionate staff and crew always go the extra mile in ensuring that our guests have a safe, educational and truly memorable time and we're glad that you had the opportunity to experience this first hand with our WSDC family. It was certainly a day filled with shark excitement and enough cupcakes to go around and in the meantime you'll have the fun footage of your trip to keep those memories alive until we meet you all again. Safety, education, respect and research (while having fun) remain our priorities. Best wishes and safe travels Your WSDC team
