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

You have an idea or expectation in your mind what it will be like in the cage but, for me anyway, it was still surprising. Surprising how close you get, amazing to see such a beautiful misunderstood creature. The entire Apex team made the trip even more enjoyable as they seemed to be as excited to show us the sharks...

This was a once in a lifetime experience! We saw natural predation from afar but felt lucky to have seen it. The crew were so nice, helpful, and knowledgable! We had a lot of time in the cage and they made sure we all got to see sharks in the water. Nice light snacks after the dive too! Amazing time!... More

Having wanted to see great whites in their natural environment for as long as I remember, this completely fulfilled my hopes and expectations. Apex have a great crew and seem to genuinely care for the well beings of the sharks as well, keeping track of who they see and noting any new injuries/changes or problems since last sightings while the...
