Whether we’re on land or out at sea, the White Shark Diving Company is rivalled only by the best in the world. Our seasoned crew has years of maritime and managerial experience to ensure you receive first-class trips and shark cage dive tours whenever you visit.

We are a fully licensed, government-recognised operator, not an agent. You know what you’re getting and who you’re diving with when you book with WSDC. Everything is transparent and trustworthy. This difference is evident in the quality experience, maximum dive time and smaller groups enjoyed by guests. We own and run our own boats and have an unbeatable location in the heart of the Gansbaai Harbour.

As our operating permit is partially dependent on the qualifications of our crew, each member is equipped to handle any challenge this adventurous industry brings our way. You can rely on our accredited great white shark cage diving business and the trained professionals who man our ship.

For an experience unlike any other in the world, dare to dip into the ocean with nature’s apex predator. The adrenaline rush of shark cage diving with powerful Great Whites is an unmissable thrill for anyone visiting the gorgeous South African coastline.


Having our clients feeling safe and comfortable whilst being out of their comfort zone is our crew’s main objective each and every day at sea. Doing this whilst living their dream is a pleasure for our crew.

With Philip Snr (26 years with WSCD) and Philip Jnr comprising our Skipper (and our Captain) and Dive Master team respectively, we are indeed amongst highly experienced crew on board the White Shark! No father and son team have clocked more Great White Shark trips anywhere else on the planet!
