First - side note - I am a HUGE Chris Fallows fan. So, by default I was already super excited about this opportunity. I did 4 days of morning shark trips (August 5-8) - there are not enough nice things I can say about them all. We booked our trip via email with Karyn who is VERY accommodating. She was... More

Just completed my fourth visit to Simon's Town to spend time with Apex Shark Expeditions, and I will likely be back for a fifth. Everything about this operation is first class. The crew will make you feel right at home, take care of anything you need and will make sure that no matter how much you think you know about... More

In 2001, I saw the first Air Jaws on Discovery's Shark Week and was introduced to Chris Fallows & APEX Shark Expeditions. The moment I saw the sharks leaping out of the water to catch seals on the screen, I jumped out of my own chair and swore I'd one day go to South Africa and experience it myself. Thirteen... More

Very informative tips for potential guests especially booking extra days at sea. It is expensive to travel half way across the world only to have your shark trip/s cancelled. The Cape of Storms certainly lives up to its name so ensure you have ample opportunities to see what you came to see. Thanks for the review and the video clip.... More

My husband and I had a great time with Apex. We left on time and were able to see 5 sharks the day we went out. The crew was knowledgable and answered all the questions we had. Remember to bring your credit card the day you go, since payment is not made when you make reservations but on the day... More

We made our reservations well in advance (1/2 year) of our trip, as I knew this was one thing we absolutely had to do in South Africa. I chose Apex as they were well reviewed in dive magazines and very eco-friendly. We were lucky to go out the day we did (the afternoon trip), as the weather was becoming quite... More

This activity was very high on my husband's list, but he's not as much of a planner as me. Lucky for him several months before I trip I asked if he seriously wanted to do this, and when I looked online there were only two spots left on the boat. Booked immediately. This was 4 months prior to our visit.... More

Don't know what to say. Amazing trip. Loved it. Monique, Chris and Nick were superb. Amongst the better things i did in a limited time in Cape Town. Spent 1 hour in the cage (lucky) and experienced everything i could have hoped for and more. Would definitely recommend doing this. It's a really special experience....and these are the right guys...

This is a great trip! I actually had no interest in going shark cage diving but I'm working in Cape Town for a few months and this was listed as #2 on some top 10 things to do in the area so I decided to try it. Apex was recommended in one of my guidebooks and it was an easy... More

It started with a framed photo of the above iconic GW breach given by my girlfriend for my birthday. That led to a trip to the website where I learned SCUBA cert was not required and snorkel-only was, in fact, preferred. Next we got in touch with Caryn Cooper who was extremely helpful in arranging everything. DO NOT WAIT around,... More
