We are a family owned and run company, and pride ourselves for our personal service, smaller groups, more time in the cage and less time feeling like a number. Much of the company’s profits are put into conservation and protection of the Great White Shark, which is “Vunerable” in Africa.

Shark Diving Unlimited is a licensed by the South African Department of Environmental Affairs’ Branch of Oceans and Coasts. We are situated in the Great White Shark capital of Gansbaai, just 2 hours from Cape Town. We are the only PADI Diving Centre in Gansbaai where we specialise in Great White Shark cage diving and viewing where no prior experience is needed.

Mike Rutzen has spent more time free diving with Great White Sharks than any other person on the planet.  He is also one of only 3 people who is able to read and respond to Great White Shark body language.  It’s this respect and love he has for these animals, which we aim to share with our guests.
