We were very lucky to get a trip out as the weather had turned during our stay and the boats were not going out in the rough conditions. We were very excited to learn that our trip was going ahead and travelled to Mossel Bay in the morning. The early trip returned while we were having breakfast and they were... More

Although this was the most expensive activity on our SA holiday, it is well worth it and represents good value for the experience you get. The staff were all superb - really knowledgeable about shark biology and ecology and looked after us very well. We were lucky enough to see 4 sharks and everyone on the boat got an equal... More

This was an early start at 06:30 hr but well worth it. We booked it months in advance as they are extremely busy. The staff are very friendly and experienced, providing a light breakfast before the trip and a brief safety talk. Once anchored out at sea they start to 'chum' the water and fish using tuna heads. The experience... More

We had one false start at this as we were booked on an early morning dive but did not receive confirmation of the time we needed to check in until the morning of the dive, by which time it was too late for us to get to Mossel Bay. However, the firm was happy to reschedule our booking so we... More

I did this for my 30th birthday and I know it will be one of the best birthdays I ever have. The experience is just amazing. White shark Africa were very safe, the location they go to at the time we went meant that the sharks were not huge (still very big when they are right in front of you),... More

We had a light breakfast and drinks before setting of for our journey. The boat... More

This is not something anyone at home (in Scotland) would ever imagine me doing but I loved every minute of it!! Was slightly scared (terrified) when actually going over the side of the boat into the cage but at not one moment did I feel unsafe. And the interaction with the sharks was incredible.. a real adrenaline rush!!!!

Amazing from the word go. Breakfast to start and a slide show and explanation of why sharks behave like they do. The boat is compact but nevertheless perfectly adequate. The staff were very friendly and helpful and answered all our questions. We had at least 30 minutes in the water and saw at least 6 or 7 sharks. BIG!! Lunch... More
