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

Great day run by a lovely bunch of people. Everyone associated with the experience was great and they really try and make sure you get a shark experience (which you have to remember is not guaranteed but up to chance). Felt safe every step of the way though the Cape Town waters can be unforgiving at times

When I contacted apex shark expeditions about a possible seal dive, they had outsourced this to another company. This was perfectly fine as it gives business to others. The company they outsourced this trip to was Pisces divers. Anyway this was all fine until I found out Apex's price was 1/3 more than than pisces diving. They didn't do anything... More

Our core business is great white shark tours. In order to offer a centralized booking service to our guests, we have widened our bouquet of offerings to include other marine experiences some of which we outsource. We use a number of operators for the seal and cow shark dives, each having it’s own pricing model. In order to standardize the... More

There are plenty of shark expeditions being advertised in Cape Town for a chance to see the great whites. Apex is not the cheapest but you certainly get what you paid for. We were picked up from our hotel in Cape Town and driven to Simon's Town. The drive to and fro was like a mini sight seeing trip on... More

Our trip to see the great white sharks was years in the making and Apex Shark Expedtions did not disappoint. Saw many predations and a couple of air jaws. The staff are so professional in everything that they do. We wanted to organise extra tours for the afternoons, we talked to them about what we wanted to do and they... More

We can't believe what an amazing experience this was. On our dive we had Dave, Jimi and Fiona looking after us, and they looked after us like family. We had our 15 year old daughter with us, and she was quite anxious about the cage dive. There was no pressure for her to get in the cage, and she was... More

We had an awesome day on the boat. We saw sharks jumping out of the water for over an hour with the crew assuring everyone could see them, and moving the boat as close as possible to give everyone the best experience. With everything to do with nature though.. nothing is guaranteed. once we jumped in the cage the action... More

Right from the onset, the communication between Apex and myself has been stellar with prompt responses and I am impressed with the high level of integrity that they exhibit. Shark sightings have been slow and they have been very upfront and reminded me twice and at no point in time did I feel compelled to proceed and that to me... More
