Went on an amazing dive with the Shark Explorers in the deep. Saw tons of sharks and a humongous tuna. Also the sandwiches were legit A.F.

This was a great experience. The crew was friendly and professional, and even though 6 great white sharks came within inches of our cage, I felt quite safe. This is not to me missed if you are in the Cape Town area

Fantastic day out. Brilliant professional team that made the experience really memorable and couldn't do enough for you. We were also lucky enough to see a six hundred pod of dolphins and a southern right whale leaping out of the water, magical day, thanks guys

My wife and I are going to South Africa for the first time in May (bucket list trip) and have been searching everywhere for the perfect Great White Shark trip. She's PADI certified and doesn't want to "hold her breath" in a large cage with many people. Do we get Scuba equipment / at least a snorkel?

I did not do the Great White diving while I was there . Weather did not permit it; however, in South Africa you are not on scuba when you do these trips. You are in snorkel gear. It is not really 'diving'. I enjoyed my... More
We will be in Cape Town during the latter part of March (16-18). Is this a good time to do the cage tour? Do you recommend the morning or afternoon tour?
