We were told that it was prime time for breaching when we booked. When we got there they said it was too late in the season for breaching. We were originally booked for 7 am. They called the night before and told us to be there at 6. We didn't leave the dock until 9. We did see some sharks... More

I booked with Apex Shark Expeditions on the 27th June ( for August 16) and the tour was meant to be a great ending to my trip to Africa. Unfortunately the company contacted me yesterday and tried to deflect me onto another company due to poor shark numbers. I had booked directly on their website to be on their trip... More

Weather plays a vital role in our business of which we have no control. Although the office made an error in the email with regards to the operator, we could not confirm pick up with Apex or any other company as all trips had be cancelled due to weather. In order to avoid disappointment, we advise guests not to book... More

This is my first ever review in my life. I do not normally bother but I had to sign up and write one for apex I enjoyed it that much. My girlfriend booked this trip for my birthday and to be honest I was pretty nervous about doing it, the water being a bit cold and the cage holding up,... More

We were referred to Apex by a friend and signed up to see the Great Whites. We weren't disappointed. Within minutes of arriving at Seal Island, we witnessed several predations. Over the course of a few days we witnessed many spectacular breaches and have a series of photos that we will enjoy forever. But it wasn't just sharks...we saw bioluminescent... More

We had originally booked to go with Apex for our shark dive experience but when phoning to check on the day prior they informed us that there hadn't been any shark sightings in False Bay for a few days and so decided to book us with another operator in Gansbaai. Very impressed that they chose to do this instead of... More

Thank you for your review even though we needed to reschedule you due to sightings. Most unfortunate.Being upfront is the only way to operate. It is this transparency that ensures we receive repeat and word of mouth guests. Much Appreciated! Karyn More

AMAZING!! Can't wait to go back!!! Fantastic company with great staff and most importantly ethics!! It was an experience of a lifetime to see these animals for real! They're beautiful (but still just a little scary). I was there in March and although the water was murky we still saw 4 of the beauties from the boat. Just breathtaking!! Thank... More

Been going out a few times shark diving, but the main aim was to photograph a breaching great white. As this is nature, NOTHING is guaranteed and what makes it more difficult is that you have NO idea where the shark will breach if it does. Going with Chris was different than the previous ties with other operators. He is... More
