    What an incredible eco-tourism experience that I hope will make more people appreciate and want to protect sharks! There were sharks galore during my trip, all within inches from my face, thankfully from the safety of the diving cage. The Marine Dynamics staff were also all very friendly, responsive, and accommodating.

    A few things worth noting: First is that you are unlikely to see a Great White, as they have cleared out the area due to Orca predation. Even so, the multitude of Copper Sharks I saw certainly didn't disappoint! Also, FYI that if you're staying in Cape Town, Gansbaai is a 2-3 hour drive, so you will spend a bit of time in the shuttle. Trust me, it's worth it! Plus, our driver was great.

    Overall can't say enough good things about this experience!

  • What an experience! Me and my grandson of 3 years went on the sea safari.
    Let me start from the beginning: The making of the booking, quick, excellent, communication.
    The arrival, welcoming and lecture about the sea life above all other companies. Jeanine was our teamleader. Well informed.
    Safet: safety jacket is a must, well cared for, in a excellent condition.

    The trip wonderful, entertaining. We saw 4 of the big five. The Skipper of the boat made every effort to have a super experience. The supervisors on the boat were professional and accommodative towards my grand child and visitors.
    We felt safe at all times. The saying good bye with something to eat was great: freshly baked bread with vegetable soup.
    This safari trip was one of the best sea trips that we have done!

    Amazing experience to see the sharks swim up to you in the cage. We had 3 or 4 sharks swimming at our cage. Unfortunately, it was a bit difficult to see underwater as the water was a bit murky, not to mention COLD. But the guides were great and the wet suits they give do a fairly decent job of keeping you warm. It was a really exciting experience all around

    Other than the fact we were picked up at 2am everything went well. We were driven to Gansaii given a safety briefing and a wet suit with goggles. We were taken out in the boat to shark alley and eight at a time climbed into the cage. Your head is out of the water and when the spotter yells shark to the right you take a deep breath and duck under the water. My only problem was try ing to take a picture while I was doing this. The sharks don't stay still but I did manage to get two pictures of them. After it is over and your are back on land they give a small breakfast.

    We had a fantastic trip out on the water seeing lots of wildlife. A bit too early for the whales. The highlight was interacting with a massive pod of common dolphins. The crew were very helpful pointing out penguins, seals and birds and explaining what they were. The trip was well managed and the crew very knowledgeable. Highly recommended if you have some time! Thank you ti the crew for such a great experience!

    We saw 4 of the 5. Had an awesome time with a pod of common Dolphins. We also saw Penguins and Seals far away from their normal habitat, swimming in the ocean.

    The favorite was viewing the shacks. It was so surreal and total amazing coming face to face with the sharks.
    Despite the Pandamic it didn't dumpen our spirits even though there are few trips done by the operators due to low numbers.
    The drive to Gansbaai is so amazing with beautiful mountains along the way.
    I'll definitely go again.

    I visit Cape Town from the UK at least once a year, and every time i visit I do at least one tour with Ivan. He is an incredibly friendly and knowledgeable guide so we always have an enjoyable and informative trip. The vehicles used are high quality, well maintained and really comfortable. I can not speak highly enough about the company.

    There are many tour to go to Cape of good hope, but a little one to Cape Agulhas.
    Under these conditions, this gave me a great opportunity to see a point to meeting Atlantic and Indian Ocean.
    When I applied, there were other participants, but on that day, No one excepting me, so it was more comfortable than I had thought.
    I recommend that you join this tour if you have neither driving license in South Africa nor confidence to get there alone.

    Hello everyone, I did this experience on 21st February 2022 and over all I can say that was amazing
    Miss Kim was very patient with me and my family welcoming us both by phone as well as in person when we met giving all information that we needed.
    We sow a lot of shark and all was done with professionally and in safe manner. To do better I suggest to arrange suits for kids to allow also them to do in the water. Thanks to all the staff and a special thanks Miss Kim
