It's been my husbands bucket list dream to cage dive with sharks and after being disappointed in Cape Town with a dive cancellation due to the weather White Shark Africa were able to fit us in at Mossel bay at pretty short notice which was great. On arrival we were pretty nervous, however nerves were soon lessened after a very... More

We booked our trip via the “Adventure Centre” in our Accommodation. First, we were only on the “Waiting list”, promised to get information till the evening, if we are good to go. We got no information about our trip until the morning of the next day, but in the end, everything was ok. The trip was great, we saw many... More

It was great to see a shark on the trip. Dvd bit expensive for south Africans. Very educational about sharks. Overall not bad, yet no certificates for completion of the dive as the brochure it saying?

It was an OK experience. Most Important thing first: You are not diving! You don't get any scuba equipment and not even a snorkel! Crew is nice and always willing to answer your questions. However you need a bit of luck: The time you'll have with the sharks depends on the fact how long is needed to attract ("chumming") them.... More

I really enjoyed the trip, where we were lucky enough to see five sharks. Major plus points are the friendly and entertaining crew, who really take off the Hollywood fairy tales about the aggressive shark (spread the word, shark fin soup is for d**kheads only). After that it is just an amazing safari. The food and the gathering site is... More

Bucket List Ticked! I felt no fear. Instead I felt safe and in awe! This was an all and all exhilarating and mind blowing experience. The staff and establishment was professional, on time, clean, friendly, confident, passionate and considerate. The sharks were beautiful and gracious! Suits were perfect and warm and clean. Good quality masks. We also received a great... More

I think we may have been lucky in a small group to get so much time in the cage. The Sharks aren't that big but it was still exhilarating. I heard the crew jokingly exaggerating about how many sharks we saw to tell the office (6) when we maybe saw 2. No need to exaggerate, chaps - 2 is plenty.... More

So so so soooo disappointing! Like alot of people visiting South Africa this experience was set to be one of the highlights. We were so disappointed with the experience that we had with this company and then even more disappointed when we heard from other how great their experiences had been at other locations in the days that followed.
