This is something I've wanted to do for a long time! It was a great experience! We were lucky enough to have sharks around our boat within 2 minutes of arriving. The staff were fantastic and you can really tell they care a great deal about the sharks and their environment. I'm a thrill seeker and it wasn't as scary... More

This was a real adventure. We saw a few sharks. The sight under the water was not the best because of the weather, but you could see them perfectly from the surfice. The staff was engaged and made the trip joyfull.

This was a really, really cool experience! It's not nearly as scary as it sounds... the cage is strapped to the side of the boat, and your in the cage with 7 other people. You hold onto a bar inside the cage and sort of duck underwater when the sharks come by. The water is really cold, even in the... More

This was on my husband's bucket list, but I went along and SO glad I did. Like the other reviews, the drive is long, but it does not feel like 2 hours. It was nice to see the country side at sunrise, have a good breakfast, and get the briefing about the day ahead. Our boat was the first of... More

What an adventure! Bucket list done! hats off to the crew. They're very passionate and knowledgeable, ready to assist you. I would really love to do this again! Must do in South Africa! Such a once in a lifetime experience! TIP: Volunteer to go first. Be in the Ist batch. Be Prepared for the cold water during summer. Highly recommended.

My husband and I went on a shark dive in Dec 2016. Their boat can take up to 18 divers and we were with a group of 16. In our case, the group was divided into 2 lots of 8 divers. We sat on the boat watching the other group go first, then jumped into the cage after they were... More

First, the positives. We saw four great whites during our trip. The crew spotted the first shark almost immediately after we dropped anchor, and there were sharks around frequently during the duration of our time at anchor. There was no time waiting around for the sharks, and it was not just one quick sighting and that was all. Crew did... More

This was a great once-in-a-life-time experience! We will likely not go back to Cape Town as we have so many places to see, and we were so glad we did this.
