Over the last five years I have traveled to Simon's Town each July for a week to view the Great White sharks of False Bay. Apex has always been my company of choice. They are highly professional and passionate about not just the sharks but about all the wildlife of False Bay. The crew are experienced, very friendly and always... More

It is such a privilege to have the same guests return year after year. There are guests who have been traveling here every year for the last 10 years to spend time with the great whites. Then there are those guests who only came for a once in a lifetime 5 day package trip who now travel here every year... More

I was lucky enough to join Apex Shark Expeditions in July/August 2014 on their annual Natural Predation Specialty trips. I cannot recommend Chris and Monique's company enough. From the friendly greeting by Alastair at Cape Town airport to the effortless hospitality of Chris, Monique and the crew of White Pointer II I felt welcomed right the way through the trip.... More

The last 4 years I did my shark trips with APEX. Excellent, very knowledgeable crew on the boat, excellent crew in the office (special thanks to Renee and Bernie for their help and support in the last 4 years!), they are always there when you need them. APEX is a very good choice if you want to see one of... More

The APEX team is very accomadating to all your needs. They are extremely knowledgeable about the Great White Sharks in the area. They try extremely hard to make sure you have the chance to see a shark even if you don't get to dive with one. If there is bad weather they will try and book you on other excursions... More

What a amazing group of people. we researched the shark experiences available in the area for our trip to South Africa. Apex sounded fantastic. We connected via email, they kept us up to date up until the moment we showed up. The captain "Chris" and his crew are as passionate about the sharks and thier knowledge and respect for the... More

Thank you for the constructive feedback. Apex Shark Expeditions is licensed to operate at Seal Island in False Bay. This permit only allows us at Seal island. During the summer months, the sharks leave the island and move inshore which means we cannot operate from October to January. As such, we facilitate bookings with a few preferred operators in Gansbaai,... More

I went with Apex for a morning predation expedition in mid August to Seal Island. We were initially told that for the last 2+ weeks, there have been few shark sightings, and given the opportunity to back out. I decided to go ahead, and boy it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. As soon as we got... More

Apex Shark Expeditions is THE company to use if you're looking for more than an adrenaline rush. The owners and staff know great white sharks and work hard for quality sightings. Despite it being the tail end of the viewing season when we visited, we had excellent shark views, much better than I expected. And more. Because there are only... More
