Excellent outing. Competent, professional, personable, intelligent, and passionate staff. I went with my niece. I got a little sick, and you took care of me immediately and without incident. We also were blessed with about 50 dolphins! What a day!!!

Loved the experience, the people were lovely. I was anxious at first but once I started talking to to the instructors, I felt calm.

By thinking it was the winter season for Durban and South Africa , ocean water temperature was so nice we even did not feel any cold. Sharks are quite cool animals to swim together ;)
