I'm planning a few days next week... saw the Seal & Sevengill shark dive listed as available with 12 spaces... How many do you need to run the trip? Also, do you have transportation options from central Cape Town (Kloof Street area)?

Good Day! We need 4 to run a trip. We saw sharks yesterday and will go again today. The weather is picking up so call us to get the best idea of when will be the most likely time to dive.
