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, due to an unfortunate travel incident, ended up with only two. And yet we crammed... More

We are so glad we could shuffle things around a bit for you. While not always possible we really try our best to maximise your stay in Cape Town and manage things should weather or other issues arise. Thanks so much for such a positive review! We really appreciate it and it makes the hard work worthwhile! More

Gavin helped me put together a great list of activities to do while in Cape town. Each activity came with timely transportation and friendly staff. Email assistance also helped make sure the activities would go ahead on each planned day (based on the weather forecast). Overall a great experience!

We had three trips in Cape Town with Extreme Scene: seal snorkeling, shark cage diving and private guided full day Cape Pennisula Tour. Thanks for Gavin and his team everything was perfectly organized so we had an amazing time. I recommend Extreme Scene for everyone, you will not regret it :))

They arranged our transportation and the whole day and it was amazing, what a thrill, there were 9 of us and at the end of the day everybody was buzzing with the thrill of the day. We were... More

Gavin contacted us a few days before our planned trip as no sharks had been spotted for 2 weeks, he asked if we would still like to go ahead with the trip as he couldn't guarantee that we'd see any sharks but we thought we'd go ahead with it anyway as he said he would give us a voucher for...

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 booked through Extreme Scene based on other recommendations that we found on Trip Advisor, and were not disappointed in the least! Gavin helped us with lining up an Abseil and Shark Cage Diving, and had input on when and how to do each. Both trips were fantastic. Our guide for the Abseil was Xolani - he led us on... More

We chose Gavin and Extreme Scene for the shark diving, Cape peninsula tour, and paragliding. Ben drove us around for two full days and was such a professional. It was a great way to see this beautiful place. We would recommend to anyone.
