    Unbelievable experience and I'd highly recommend it. Great staff, excellent guides and trackers and just incredible to see the animals and birds in their natural environment.

    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.

    I had such an incredible time on this adventure. The staff was so friendly and also extremely knowledgable. Even though the water was murky, we got to see plenty of sharks which is such a dream come true for me !!!

    It was a beautiful day, nice weather. The waves weren't that shaky ;-)
    Dolphins came past the boat, penguins were swimming nicely. The seals were enjoying themselves on their rocks.
    Although the whale season was already over, we were still very very lucky to spot some whales.
    Last but not least we saw how the sharks were fed, which are very impressive animals.

    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.

    Brilliant experience. No white sharks to see though unfortunately. Saw a stingray have a scrap with 2 large 3 meter sharks, and lots of other wild fish. Staff were top notch and very friendly. Cheers guys.

    Currently there seem to be more southern Right hanging out at Gansbaai, than in neighbouring Hermanus, which is why we chose Ivanhoe whale watch . We were lucky enough to soon find Mum and calf , who came so close to the boat, you could feel the spray of the blow. We’re able to watch them for a fair while, and get some great footage. Saw quite a few other whales too. We’d certainly use Ivanhoe again .

    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.

    What a fantastic adventure, we really had a great day with Dyer Island Cruises, we did the Marine Big 5, spotted Marine birds, the bridel whale, dolphins, seals, we even saw a corper shark, after the trip we stopped by the penguin sanctuary.

    I would highly recommend this 5 star experience to anyone from South Africa as well as International Tourists. Really professional company, professional and super friendly staff, you can tell that they all love what they doing.

    Shout out to Janine, she was very helpful and took her time to show us around, she is one amazing Lady.

    We had an amazing experience and highly recommend this to anyone, whether you do the Marine Big 5 or Shark Cage diving.

    Great trip today, excellent safety briefing (shame all the guests didn’t listen), advised from the outset we might only see birds & seals and we did. Unfortunately there was a technical glitch but the great crew kept everyone informed & got everyone back in safely. Highly recommend.

    Amazing experience, we saw many sharks and the crew was excellent! Very helpful, kind, taking all the safety rules. They told us many informations about the sharks so we leaned things except from the experience itself, they really care about the sharks and i appreciated it very much. Thank you very much guys!! I was really enjoyed this experience with you and i am sure that also the others did, it was, without doubt, worth it and i would recommend averyone to join this team and live this experience because it will be something that will never forget!!
