A must-do while in Cape Town! We had bought the shark viewing & cage diving for us, a family of 4 with 2 parents & 2 teenage boys. No problem to find the place by car at the harbor front in Gansbaai - make sure to start in time, at least 2.5 hours before. Luckily the heavy traffic was mostly towards Cape Town and not in our direction. At White Shark Ventures we were met by very friendly staff, had a nice breakfast and got changed into wet suits. Make sure to bring sun screen as you will be at sea for 2-3 hours, so at least for the head and hands. We got out with the 2:nd tour (at 11.00, due to the tide) and headed to the other side of the bay with about 20 people. Quite soon we saw a Copper Shark and soon after, we were lucky to get the Great White Shark very close to us several times. Amazing! We saw it from the boat and the water from inside the cage, about 4 people at a time. Afterwards we had lunch and concluding information about their preservation work. Warmly recommended!

I can only recommend it, it was a very successful excursion, seen 4 of the Big 5 and even several times. We were able to observe a whale from the Cape two days beforehand, so we even saw the Big 5 in SA.

Great Team - Great Information - Have had seen 4 Copper Sharks and I was so lucky to see a 4Meter long White Shark from inside the cage :-)

This was amazing!We saw many whales, seals, penguins and even sharks! The guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. Loved it!

The best experience in the world! Totally worth it and the crew was so nice and professional!
