    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.

    What a great team to take you on this adventure. We had a good experience with everyone from the booking/reception person to the crew. Ernesto was so warm and friendly as well as Brok and Nina. We had our 8 year old twins with us. They did not want to do the cage dive but loved the boat ride and looking at the sharks and seals from above. Highly recommend this experience.

    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 love those folks! I signed up for two shore dives and the amazing team led me to spectacular kelp diving Sites in Simons Town. The dive shop is a cool place to hang out, the staff is so easy going and fun, i would love to call them friends! I felt well taken care off all the time, was provided a tasty salad in between the dives, good equipment, top briefing- could not wish for more, you guys made my day!

    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)

    Great fishing trip with Alan and his crew! We were able to catch both Snoek and Yellowtail on the Cape Point Trip - awesome views included. Highly recommend!

    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.

    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!

    Our family with 2 teenage sons loved this tour. The boat ride was very wavey and semi rough which was exciting. There were many seniors on our boat enjoying themselves as well. Were lowered inside a protective cage with wet suits on to see the sharks as they swam by the cage. A few times the shark came at us with a wide open mouth... very exciting to witness. Very safe and different activity.
