    Bucket List experience to Cage Dive with Sharks in South Africa. Apex provided an amazing excursion that included sighting a 200+ Pod of Dolphins, a visit to Seal Island with 1000’s of adult seals with Pup’s and the dive itself amongst 12-15 Bronze Whaler sharks. Well looked after by the crew, always felt safe and what a ‘buzz’ at the end. Highly recommend the experience.

    I had such an amazing time in Cape Town while being shown around with Apnea Addicts Freediving. We visited many dive sites via shore and boat. All while improving my diving skills on freediving courses.

    My son and I had absolutely amazing dives with seals, amazing coral and pajama sharks in the coral for us. This is a truly amazing site. The only caveat is that the dive conditions are a bit cold. I found that the wet suit plus a jacket and hood covered me sufficiently. However, especially sensitive divers may find issues here. None of this has to do with the excellent guided service of the staff which is a plus plus plus. However, Just be aware it’s cold

    Really enjoyed the time I spend with Ollava. Had so much fun and a few laughs. Was well worth it. Will definitely be back on my next holiday and visit to Cape Town, South Africa. Rudy also got me interested in Tech diving and exploring caves!

    I would highly recommend this company for diving. I hadn't been diving in a couple of years and had never been anywhere other than the Caribbean for diving. I was kitted out with very good equipment, skills were reviewed, and I was well looked after out on the dive.

    Excellent tuition by Mike - with a lot of attention to ensuring I extracted as much as possible from the experience.
    I'd recommend him to anyone looking to improve their diving skills and experience.

    Definitely needs more than 5 star. Amazing experience to dive the kelp forest with 2 lovely, competent instructors. An experience worth repeating.
