Let me tell you all types of thoughts were rushing through my head as I ventured from Cape Town to Gansbaai to find the White Shark Diving Company. Once there we enjoyed a nice breakfast and training before going out on the boat. Shortly after a 10-15 minute ride we began chumming to lure the sharks towards our boat! Again, in my mind not the smartest thing to do in a boat on the water far from shore! We wee told to suit up for the shark cage diving experience and there was no turning back. The water wasn't that cold at all or perhaps it was the adrenaline rushing through my body as I entered the water with Sharks!!!! In no time I was face to face with great whites! What a rush... The largest one we encounter was about 9 meters or roughly 15 feet long! Let me tell you that when you are in the water and it swims by it is like a bus passing you...HUGE! All in all we saw 9 sharks that outing and were told that adults could grow to 12+ meters long! That's 34 feet!!! I recommend this experience as it will give you a knowledgeable outlook about great whites and dispel previous misconceptions about that movies might have construed. Get out and dive!

We had a great time with the White Shark Diving Co. We saw three sharks and got to spend as much time in the cage as we wanted to, since many people got in and out after they saw a few sharks. We had 12 passengers on the boat and it was a little crowed - anymore would have been too many. However, it was nothing to complain about...the experience was incredible! They had a light breakfast waiting for us and a nice warm lunch after the trip. There are hot showers on site as well, which is nice because the water is so cold. They also had snacks on the boat. If this is on your bucket list, this is a great company to go with!

This was a great company to work with. I booked a private charter trip for 20 people and they picked us up early in the morning from Cape Town to take us to the boat. They picked us up from our hotel and there was nothing more to think about. They produced a great video, provided breakfast and lunch and were incredibly responsive in the planning process. We saw a ton of sharks and it was totally worth it! It feels completely safe, so don't be worried - the staff really knows the water and the animals. Only advice - if you're prone to sea sickness, take some nausea pills.

This company is very professional. The safety briefing is spot on and covers all the questions you may have.
These guys ensure you have a good time and that everyone gets to see the sharks close up.
Weather is a massive factor when doing this but I was lucky yesterday with a great group, great weather and great sharks.
Trompie (The Driver) is a really nice patient guy and gave us plenty of information before and after the dive en route, even saw whales at Hermanus on the way home.
All in all a very good company set on making your day a great one and with a DVD of your trip at the end it was a really good day.
When I return to Gaansbai again, I will be booking with these guys again.
