We booked with Gavin for a day trip to go cage diving (with Shark Diving Unlimited) and he made the process seamless and even kept and eye on the weather, working with us to adjust as needed. He responded promptly and was always available for questions we had - big or small. Would have loved to book other trips with... More

Terrific experience and trip. The pick up in Cape Town, although painful (4:45 AM!!) went smoothly, and the trip organization in Gansbaai was terrific. Everything went exactly as advertised and it was an amazing experience overall. This is a must do excursion in South Africa -- truly exceptional.

Quick Responses. This is a booking agency so if you don't want to do your own research this is the way to go.

Gavin was the perfect organiser for our Extreme Scene trips. We booked the Shark Cage diving, quad biking and evening cruise. Gavin kept us fully updated on our itinerary and advised on weather conditions etc. Nothing too much trouble. Will definitely book more adventures with Gavin at Extreme Scene on our next trip to Cape Town!

Watching great white sharks breach, feed on seals and cruise or even attack your cage makes for a pretty exhilarating and unforgettable experience. These are some of the world's top predators displaying behavior seen nowhere else on earth and it's all right there for you to witness, including getting up close and personal with them in the water (through steel...

through the Extreme Scene I booked 2 tours, Gavin helped me, everything was great. I chosed afternoon half day Cape Point Tour and morning shark cage diving in False Bay . Since the False bay area was not a few days of Great White sharks, Gavin advised to go to Gansbaai and overbooked tour, and promptly returned to the difference... More

Hi Vikki thanks for the very positive review even after we had to change some of your plans at last minute. That was a very unusual situation that even in May which is the peak season for Great Whites that there were no sightings in False Bay at the time of your arrival. Just as well Gansbaai was as consistent... More

Hi Sam. That was really a spontaneous decision on the day to go tandem skydiving wasnt it! But definitely a great decision as the weather was perfect and we managed to get you and your 2 daughters on a plane for some tandem skydiving even though it became quite a rush to get you there in time. But huge smiles... More

We did Tandem Paragliding. It was amazing. Gavin did a superb job to make it go ahead despite the unpredictable Cape Town weather. He was in constant contact, updating us on the wind conditions. Be sure to take advantage of the vast amount of activities that he offers and all at a reasonable price.

Tandem Paragliding is the closest you can get to non motorised flying. Perfect way to view our scenic Atlantic Seaboard. Definitely an activity to keep on your list of things to do in Cape Town. More
