    My Wife and I had an awesome time. Even when my sea sickness I somehow managed haha. Got to see some Penguins on our way to the shark spot. Once we got to our designation we were Up and Close we the bronze whaler sharks and even a couple of seals which was awesome to see them swimming together. The Crew were absolutely outstanding / very professional and went above and beyond for taking care of us so big props to them. Also very informative and you learn quite a bit.
    Fair Warning you will most likely NOT see any Great whites due to the Orcas. Thanks for the great memories.

    Had a really good time. Saw plenty of sharks and made great memories. Felt safe and secure in the boat the whole time, like everyone had been doing this for years. I recommend doing the hookah dive, it allows you to sit under the water and wait for the sharks to swim by.

    Wow! What an amazing experience! We have a school of 7 bronze whaler shark with us the whole time. I loved using the air supply so I didn’t have to bob up and down the whole time. Everyone got about 20 minutes in the cage with sharks around the whole time!

    The staff were so kind, warm and welcoming. Their attitude truly made the adventure a memorable one. The adventure was informative about the current situation of sharks which I did not know and now is in the front and centre of my thoughts.

    It takes about 10 minutes to go out to the fishing grounds. You wear wetsuits and you will spend 20 minutes in a cage. The total tour is about two hours. They will feed the sharks and you’ll get close to them. We saw also stingray and an otter, and about 16 sharks. Almost touchable. It was a nice experience.

    A wonderful trip, a couple of hours outside Cape Town. It is the best spot for seeing sharks, although Great Whites not as common as they once were - rumours that Orcas have seen them off in recent years. The boat was crowded, but everyone got at least one chance to descend into the cage. Water clarity wasn't brilliant on the day, but we got up close to six or seven bronze whaler sharks, so had clear views. The crew were very good and knew their stuff, so made the most of the conditions. Onboard equipment was clean and in good condition, which made the colder-than-usual water a comfortable experience. An exciting day, not to be missed.

    Good experience all together.
    Crew was nice and professional,
    Boat Contains 18 people, 4/5 in the cage every round.
    Good soup at the end :)
    We would definitely come back again.
