Yes I saw a shark for 5 seconds and that was amazing. Unfortunately it was not the high season any more, and no surprise the company had forgot to mention that (not the end of the world they are trying to make a living). The reason why I will not recommend this company is that they did not interact with... More

First of all they were not friendly at all when we arrived (especially the ladie with the paperwork). There was given no information about the sharks, the way they live, etc. We were looking for sharks a few hours and nobody could do the shark diving in the cage because there were no sharks. We could only see a shark... More

We are truly sad and disappointed that these clients still felt the need to write a bad review after we've tried our utmost best to accommodate him and his wife in the best possible way. While the sea crew do their best to attract the Great Whites, the sightings of any wild animals including Great Whites, can unfortunately never be... More

Everything went smoothly on our trip. I would give this 5 stars if we got to see more sharks. It's probably our fault as we went in October, but we each only got 1 time in the cage. Crew was great and very upfront about the low chance of having a truly spectacular day.

Something I've always wanted to do and it was well worth waking up at three in the morning for. Amazing to see the sharks up close and personnel could have stayed down there for hours watching them swim about. Well organised and professional they were very helpful when I mixed up my booking.

Staff was wonderful and helpful with the exception of Karin, the gal who works at the desk to the right of the entrance. Karin is obviously not an owner because anyone who has made an investment in a business would never treat customers the way she treated us. Condescending, sarcastic, and impolite. Our group presented to the desk the day... More

We were booked on this company by another on short notice,we were picked up from our hotel early hours of morning ,that was the only thing the family complained about on the vacation. From the breakfast to the brief training and the choppy ride in the boat,that felt a little cramped with almost 16 people plus crew, little space to... More
