We booked to do the Great White viewing trip off Seal Island in False Bay. All was arranged in UK prior to our departure for South Africa, and Apex were very helpful in providing all the necessary information and pre-booking details required. Email answers to our questions were very timely. We were warned that there are no guarantees to seeing... More

A fantastic 4 hours. Great service from the office staff pre and post booking; friendly, engaging staff on the boat, always alert ( we spotted a sunfish before we were out of the harbour); great work locating and tempting the sharks, and then an amazing 20 mins down in the cage with them, perhaps the most excillerating few minutes of...

What an incredible day! What would you want to see on a shark tour? Sharks, seals, dolphins, and whales? We saw them all! The tour guide was great! He grew up in the area and could spot things minutes before anyone else!! He is extremely knowledgeable and can tell you what to look for. This is a must do.

I was in Cape Town for business and signed up for a sunday morning excursion. Everything from the booking to the confirmation to the transport to the excursion itself were amazing. The staff on board were well informed, incredibly helpful and a pleasure to spend a morning with. I highly recommend this tour company to solo and family travellers alike.

FANTASTIC!!!! That pretty much sums up the great experience we had on this trip. Chris, Monique and the whole crew were very personable and knowledgeable about sharks and all the marine life that we saw on this journey. I could not express more what a wonderful time we had going down in the cage to see the sharks and being... More

I went on the morning shift. The only problem is the very early wake up. The crew was very nice and we succeed to see two great white sharks. I've book the party by Internet and it was successfully.

My brother and I initially chose this shark dive operator because of its prominence on such television programs as NatGeo and Shark Week. We figured they were the best at what they did, and we were absolutely right. There is no doubt in my mind that Apex is the best at what they do because of their unparalleled crew. They... More

We decided to book a trip with Apex this past February. We left from Simonstown as opposed to Gaansbai, which we highly recommend, as it is far closer to Cape Town, so you don't lose half a day in a car. They don't guarantee sightings this time of year, but you get to see the famous Seal Island, AND go... More

We had a fantastic trip with Apex in regards to seeing 6 sharks and also a decent amount of cage time. The skipper Poenas was very knowledgeable and really worked hard to get us sightings, unfortunately the 2 british crew members were a bit OTT and on numerous occasions gave information to guests that was wrong and contradicted by the...

Thank you for your review. Good to hear you had a great trip. There does seems to be a misunderstanding of how we operate. All our correspondence and website information clearly indicates that we do not purposely feed the sharks and that a bait is put into the water as a point of interest to bring the sharks closer to...

Booked this online about two or three weeks before my trip, had a personal email acknowledgement very quickly. Usually just get an automated confirmation but this was a nice personal touch. Trip itself was amazing, Nick and Cat were excellent guides and our skipper Poenas was brilliant, pointing out any birds or wildlife nearby in a lot of detail. We... More
