Bottom line up front: if you're wondering if you should just book individual tours and activities or go with Extreme Scene (Gavin), just go with Gavin -- you will be very glad you did. We only had three days to spend in Cape Town and,...More

I booked through Gavin for cage diving with great white sharks and was not disappointed. Had a fantastic experience from start to finish and managed to see a number of sharks both whilst in the water and on the boat! Would definitely recommend.

We plan shark cage diving in April. What would be the temperature of the water, is the murky water due to pollutants or just the oils, gore, blood caused by the chum? Is it self-drive or pick-up and drop-off at hotel? Thank-you
