Either of them (with this company) include: drive from/back Cape Town; briefing, boat trip and cage diving; breakfast, snacks on the boat and lunch; diving gear... More

Shark cage diving is definitely a must when you are in Cape Town and this company organised it really well. It costed for us around 130 euros per person for the full experience: they receive you early morning (around 05.00 in the morning) from your hotel in Cape Town or around, they offer good breakfast in their office in Gansbaai...

We had booked a day shark cage diving, having never been to South Africa before we were very exited to be doing one of the things that I had always dreamed of doing. I understand that they are wild animals but not even see one during our day was so disappointing, but the company did there best but to give... More

Thank you Steve, for your review. Yes - dealing with wildlife & mother nature is never easy nor straightforward, but we still LOVE working with both! :) Please note that we do email all our guests to advise them about the current sharks and orcas' situation.

In March I spent one month with WSDC as a volunteer field researcher and the experience I had was beyond words. Like many people, cage diving has always been on my bucket list, and on this trip I was able to cross it off again day after day. The team at WSDC is friendly, informed, and above all, extremely passionate... More

March for a shark cage dive is not the best of times, we knew that. Also the guys at the White Shark Diving Co. told us not to expect tons of sharks at the boat, because it is low season, I think that was very nice and helpfull of them. Still we wanted to do this dive. We did this... More

This was the highest priority activity we wanted to do in Cape Town and it exceeded even our high expectations. Everything about it was great from the staff to the boat to the sharks (who obligingly showed up in mass for our trip). For those who are scared by the occasional you tube video of cage diving gone wrong, these... More

Having wanted to do this since I was little, there was a huge amount of expectation but I wasn't disappointed. After a very early pick up in camps bay we were greeted in Gansbaai with a beautiful sunrise and breakfast. There was time for everything to be explained thoroughly, with questions and we never felt rushed. The boat had space... More

With family from Australia this had been a bucket list item. Very well organised and a friendly, knowledgeable and caring crew. We were very fortunate that within 15 minutes of having dropped anchor we got to see our first of seven Great Whites - which we were advised was not that common. Excellent sightings both from the boat and from... More
