Good service. Weather hindered the overall experience. Very rocky and very poor visibility, nobodys fault! Company were excellent, would go with them again if I get a chance to visit South Africa again.

The water was really cold and they where orcas around, two really important factors that push away sharks, It was obvious that there would be no sharks at all. I think that in that case they must have canceled the tour and refund money. Also the food was really bad.

Great staff, marine biologist on board answering all your questions about the animal, and quality gears. They sell a video at the end that does not do justice to the experience - they should maybe consider sharing pictures taken by the marine biologist during the expedition...

All was very nice and since we manage to see sharks I think all was successful. The early morning and driver going to the wrong hotel is forgotten since great experience.

My family describes this experience as the best time ever, and a spotlight of our vacation. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The kitchen service and the food was excellent. We were impressed with how clean everything was including bathrooms. We were well surpervised on the boat. All our questions were ready answered. We wish your company continuous success.

You can do what millions before already did - and you will for sure enjoy it. You don't need to be exceptionally well trained, you don't need to be a diver and you don't need to be a hero either. If you like animals and enjoy the nature then this here is the right thing to do. Only reservation -... More

My friend and I had a great time. This seemed like the most professional out of all of the operations we saw.
