    Amazing experience, went for the full monty experience and it was so much fun that I went for the 9mm experience afterwards. Everyone was extremely nice and my instructor was super excited and helpful. Would 100 percent recommend it to other people who haven't ever experienced shooting a gun before.

    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.

    The team of Kayak Cape Town is truly amazing! They cater for different needs from beginners to more experienced. They are friendly, approachable and knowledgeable about the marine life. We felt safe throughout the trip.

    Lifetime Experience with ASEC starting from helping us out with an afternoon trip on the very next day. Crew were friendly, professional, eco-friendly, and helpful. They also use Scuba which was great as it allows you to stay under water for as long as possible. Got to see 3 Sharks (not Big Whites though - but we didn't expected that) and what an experience. Sea was rough, but our experienced crew managed to spot the Sharks for us.

    This is also a much closer option than Gansbaai or Hermanus if you are staying in Cape Town. Overall a good day out and a great operator! Made the best of our trip to Cape Town!

    For Non Swimmers: Yes, you can avail this experience if you're not afraid of chilly waters or holding your breath under water for few seconds. Of course, Scuba gears make it so much easy. (I'm mentioning this as I didn't know basic swimming at the time of writing, had no problems under the cage)

    Mike is a fantastic captain and very knowledgeable about the waters around cape point. We caught a big yellowfin tuna, some skipjacks, and had a great time. Would definitely recommend taking your charter with Big Blue Fishing Charters.

    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.

    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!
