This lady calls you that the trip was canceled and offers you another day, promiss to call you back but actually never calls! I am very disapointed. I came to Cape Towm mainly for the Shark Cage diving and it actually never happened! They keep saying that they come back to you, trying to gain the trust but nothing good... More

We booked and paid for our dive through Paul. rather book direct through a shark diving company as this is only a booking agent. False advertising. We were booked through a company that no longer operates and were pushed from pillar to post before our dive was confirmed. Be careful.

GREAT ACCOMMODATING PEOPLE!!! At the last minute, our Saturday cape tour with another company needed to be changed due to mechanical problems with their van. The folks at Unreal Dive Expeditions changed our Sunday trip to Saturday so we were able to do both tours in the two days we had in Cape Town. THANK YOU UNREAL DIVE EXPEDITIONS!!! Our... More

Paul of Unreal Dive is totally unreal. I coordinated with him via his fancy website back in early 2007 thinking of course that he had a boat and I would be scheduled on it. Luckily I didn't pay anything, but he was cagey about particulars right up to the day of the trip. Finally he told me to go to... More

Our dive, for five people, was cancelled due to bad weather, which is fair enough. Unfortunately we had prepaid and not a single cent has been refunded as per their policy. After four months and many emails I've given up. Totally dishonorable.

Despite telling me via email that they would refund our money and despite my five or six emails asking, reminding, pleading to have our money refunded, they never did. And... More

I organized a fairly extensive trip with Paul at Unreal Dive. Despite bad reviews I had read about him, i gave him a chance to explain himself, which he did, and so I gave him the business. Paul did get me good pricing on many things, which is excellent. However his follow up while planning the trip was weak and... More

We did not realize until we got there that Unreal Dive is just a booking agency - we thought they were the actual adventure. That being said they were very helpful and we got a better price with them than anyone else. The only issue because they just book is that they do not tell you the time of your... More
