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!
The trip was wonderful, food and accommodation were excellent. Our guide was Cindy - amazing, funny and positive person. We managed to see everything, impressions will last for a whole year. Thank you.
It was an amazing once in a life time experience. The group was so lovely and we have had fun from the first day. Our Tourguide Christine has made the tour something special. Thanks
