Our shark diving experience was incredible. I had been wanting to do this for a long time and thankfully I got my wife to agree to go. The thought of being in a shark cage is much more terrifying than the actual experience... even she agreed that its not scary at all. Lucky for us we had a total of... More

I was so happy I booked with this company. You can tell the whole crew have a passion for what they do and truly care about the sharks. Rather than just trying to rile up the sharks and get them to crash into the cage like other tours you really felt like you were on a boat with knowledgable people... More

I booked some tours through apex on my solo trip to Simon's Town. The best compliment that I can give Apex is that they were extremely reachable and always on top of communication. They tried everything possible to make my experience incredible - they succeeded. I was fortunate to have some great help from their staff (thanks Renee). Definitely recommend... More

We got to see four sharks close up, although the visibility was very poor, so you didn’t get to see the sharks approaching, just when they were next to the cage. There is also a great view when you are on the upper deck of the boat. We were collected from our hotel, in Cape Town and taken to Simon’s... More

If you're looking to cage dive with Great Whites (or just surface view from the boat) while in Cape Town, I would highly recommend APEX. They are a reputable company that wants to give you the best experience possible while also respecting these incredible creatures and their environment. The crew was great - they were informative, professional and accommodating. The... More

Strange to review a business that we didn't end up using, but if you try to go on a Great White adventure while in Cape Town, you'll understand. Because of the nature of this adventure, last minute (day before actually) weather can cancel the outing, which is what happened to us. The folks at Apex worked tirelessly to get us... More

I would highly recommend APEX to anyone wanting to see the Great White sharks. I traveled all the way from the US just to dive with APEX.

We saw 4-5 great white sharks face to face in the cage and about 150 dolphins on the way back to the harbor. Truly an amazing experience, which shows the expertise of the crew in spotting the animals in an average part of the season. Will definitely would do it again if we are back in Cape Town.
