We are planning on going in early July. Are there many sharks at that time? I keep reading that there haven't been many sharks lately. Is that still the case?

Hi! I'm coming to South Africa next week from the 9th to the 14th, and I'm dying to experience this attraction, with the proper scuba diving equipment. How can I contact the staff? because I'm trying to book it through tripadvisor but it has been impossible to me. Do they have a webpage? Thanks so much for your help. Marielis
