The trip was well planned and operated. We felt safe at all times and had a great view of the sharks. Yet it felt like everyone was rushed through the whole experience. Of course there were many people, but there were no informations given on those great animals at all. A lot of people are maybe not interested, and go... More

I was in Jurassic Park, at that moment you feel how strong nature is. The conviction to preserve our world became stronger after the white shark confrontation.

Never knew how big a great white shark was until I looked it in the eye! Great experience, fantastic service even if the boat did have engine problems on the way in. Great crew and an experience I shall never forget.

Greetings from Shark Team! I know exactly what you mean!!! Even when you hear that Great Whites are between 3 - 6m, you can't really visualise it nor can you get the full impact of what it feels like to see a magnificent 2 tonnes shark! I am delighted that you got to experience that... Thank you for your review... More

There is an excellent videographer that you can purchase a USB from with your trip and highlights from other trips on, which is highly recommended. I would recommend... More

From the moment I knew I was visiting South Africa, I knew I had to take the opportunity to cage dive with Great White sharks - something I had always wanted to do - and this trip fully lived up to all my expectations. Absolutely out of this world! Totally awe-inspiring and completely fantastic!

All was very good planed, the tour and shark tracking was amazing. Just the meal on the boat quite simple and not fresh, otherwise I'll give a 10 for this agency. They were all very specials and professionals
