This was an AMAZING experience. We went into it not expecting to see anything, as they are wild animals. We saw 8 different sharks and they were unreal animals. The 3 weeks prior to our booking they did not see one great white due to Orcas being in the area so we felt very lucky. The crew was knowledgeable and... More

Be prepared to get out of bed early. If u You are mobile, we stayed in hermanus about 45 min away which gives you an extra hour in bed! It is only 15 minutes before they launch the cage - Absolutely safe with the cage attached to the boat. So not long before you can see the sharks. They put... More

This is a must have when you are in south africa! The boat is not too big and there are not too many passengers on board. So everyone can go even nore then two times into the cage. On top there is a biologist at the tour! All was very good!

Our experience was superb! We really had a great time! Although it was not the best time to go see the sharks, we were able to see a couple of them and had close encounter. It was so cool!

the boa was too small and it made most of the passenger sea sick. the meat for the shark was left open in the boat and created a disgusting atmosphere to people who cannot stand fish smell and raw meat lying in the boat and visible to everybody.

This was a blast and everyone was super helpful and friendly. Best place to go with! Seen a lot and had a blast while doing so. The only thing I would recommend is that if you're from the states take a lunch just in case.

Saw multiple sharks, from moment we anchored. About 5 different sharks in all with multiple passes by each (likely over 50 passes in total). All passengers had a great view from boat and an opportunity from the cage. Very fair in giving all a chance to see and a choice to go down a second time. Knowledgable and friendly staff
