Unfortunately we could not see any great white sharks, but many large bronze sharks. These were very close, right on the cage and there were definitely 5 of them. In addition, the animals were attracted with a biodegradable bait. Everything is animal-friendly and stress-free here. You feel absolutely safe at all times and there is no danger at all. Marine biologists are always on board to answer questions and check the safety of the animals. We also saw whales from afar and a seal swam between the sharks. The breakfast was really very sufficient, the lunchtime soup wasn't our cup of tea. Nevertheless, the physical well-being was not neglected. On the ship you got a hot chocolate to warm you up and if you didn't have a towel or nausea tablets with you, you got those too. The ride on the fast boat was about 15 minutes and the rest was time for the sharks. Just great

An unforgettable experience! We were looked after very well, everything was well organized. At the start there was a delicious breakfast including instruction on the dive and interesting facts about sharks and the organization "Marine Dynamics". Then we went on the boat and up to 10 people could go into the cage at the same time. Someone from the team also filmed everything. A unique adventure, you could be very close to the animals. Even if you weren't in the cage, everything was excellent to follow from the boat. This excursion is highly recommended!

Perfect way to see sharks in the wild with a professional crew and respect for the animals. As a participant of the event we were very well looked after by the team and everything was perfectly organized. The team was very knowledgeable about the animals and area and make you feel comfortable. The encounter with the sharks cannot be described by words, but was in one word amazing. Highly advise the tour and organization, Marine Dynamics!

The activity started early as I was in cape town, it was friendly and well organised, the sea was not rough, I think the warnings about sea sickness must realt to very poor conditions, you were quickly close up with big sharks, and a large ray on my trip, the soup after was good. I would recommend White Shark Projects

Thoroughly enjoyed the day. it was a shame I didn't get to see a Great White but the Brpnze Whaler is a beautiful animal to witness in the wild, got entertained by a seal showing off as well.
