Great experience if you've got the nerve to do it!
, Jun 2019
Trip has a very early start but they provide a breakfast when you arrive, about a 2 hour drive. They run over the security and what to do and expect- very funny guy! The water can be choppy, so remember that Dramamine! They hadn't seen any great whites in about a week due to orcas in the area, but as soon as the first cage went in, there they were- amazing! (Bring a go-pro!). I didn't go in but got some amazing shots from the top deck. All wet suits provided and boots but in June the water was very cold ( my main reason for not getting in!). The cages go down with 4 people at a time for approx 20 minutes each, then you switch groups. Each group gets 2 turns. Then it's back to the facility for hot soup and rolls before heading back to Cape town. Amazing experience, well worth your money.
Absolute fraud

This is advertised as diving with great whites - nothing is further from the truth - there are no great whites where they go - as well the sharklady business tells you when you arrive at 6am in the morning AFTER you have booked it that there haven’t been any white pointers for 18 months. They will also give you the story that they saw one yesterday to give u some hope. The only place to see them now is apparently in south Australia!!

Nice and scary. Unfortunately we had to wait long time to se one shark. No one to blame about it. It was a different experience. A nice one
The Disadvantages: First of all...

The Disadvantages: First of all the displayed photo along with the tour is totally a fake. The water clarity is too bad, you will not see more than 2m ahead. The cage is not for one person, it is for group of people together we were 6. Secondly, it is not a scuba diving, the scenario is the cage will be close to the boat and part of it above the water surface, when the shark come close to the boat, someone will shout, so you will take a deep breath and free dive under water to have a quick look on the shark if it is close enough to you remember the water clarity is too bad. Thirdly, the boat is not that luxury, I believe it is a fishing boat. The Advantages: You would see obviously the shark while you stand on the boat, since it comes to the surface of water around the boat. Eventually, my advise is, if it is the first time for you to see the white shark, yes go ahead, otherwise, I do not advise you to take it.
