  • 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!

    This is one of the most ethical, considerate and sustainable shark diving companies around. They onto go out to sea when the conditions are right so you may need to be patient on no sea days. Well worth the wait. Would highly recommended!

    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.

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!!

    What on earth can I say about Ivanhoe Sea Safaris other than this experience is truly magical in every way.

    We were met with a safety briefing on board and told what we may or may not see, that we would be out for about 2 hours and after that we settled in for what would turn out to be a wonderful couple of hours on the water.

    We were educated on the Southern right whale by the most knowledgable of guides and saw so many cows with their young calfs, some whales mating ("Whale porn" is a new one on me:), Seals, dolphins and even a humpback whale.

    The boat is wonderful, they only allow a small number of people onboard..I think about 25-30 and everywhere you stand or sit has great views.

    I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company to anyone looking for a smaller trip to see the whales rather than the very popular larger companies around Hermanus.

    When going back to our car we met one of the staffs dog, "Diesel"....what a sweetheart and gives the best dog kisses ! Can't remember the owners name....but he had great teeth :)

    All in all a fabulous experience and a shame I am leaving to go North in a couple of days or I would be booking again....and again.

    Well done chaps....you made a British ladies day.

    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

    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.

    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
