“Shark Cage Trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

We had a great time! Definitely a must do for those who aren't faint of heart. Everyone had a great time, we saw and dove with 20+ sharks, and learned a lot about sharks and the ocean. Our guide was absolutely amazing and so were the dive masters that went out with us. I would recommend the trip for anyone who loves sharks and the ocean - now I can cross it off my bucket list.

“AMAZING!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

This is a must! These guys know what they are doing, they love what they do, and they deliver. When we went, the water was very clear; we saw countless fish, at least 15 Blacktip sharks and a Dusky, breeching Humpback whales, and several dolphins. It's not for young children or the faint of heart, especially when the ocean is choppy with high swells.

Add this to your bucket list! And, you'll walk away with great pictures.

Thanks from Canada yip it was a bit choppy that day but it happens in the big ocean, when we do get kids we always make sure it is a nice a calm day and we get kids from as young as 8 years old who come and dive and this is a great way for the education and the future existence of these amazing animals in the open sea, take care mate

If your thinking of shark cage diving and looking for someone good, look no further than John Miller and his team of professionals. I had my family out from Belfast Northern Ireland who were all desperate to do shark cage diving but they were all a little unsettled about the whole thing and once John reassured them and when they were done they were ooba excited and very happy that they had mastered this wonderful experience. John and his team are so well organized and have you in the water in minutes without any fuss. Well done John and your team we will be back................

Glad you guys had a great experience and you got to see the sharks in their own environment, Allot of peoples fear is from the Jaws movie and the way the media always play on a shark bite, we are in there water and it can happen but they are are misunderstood until you get to work or dive with them,

“Amazing way to see sharks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

We were a group of 8 from Canada and the UK and arranged pick up from Umhlanga, which was about 1 hour away. We started by launching off the beach into the waves (lots of fun) and then traveled for about 15 minutes to get to the shark spot. We first went into the cage for about 15 minutes (the sharks came right away) while John goes into the water and takes pictures. Afterwards, you can go into the cage again for another 15 minutes and take your own pictures/video. There were around 20 sharks swimming around us (3 different types). We also saw a hammerhead and whale on the way back. The water was warm and clear and they provide masks and wet suits. Out of all the things we did on our 1 month trip to Africa, this was definitely one of my favourite moments and I would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone! The boat ride is also lots of fun! Big thanks to John and his team. Aly from Canada.

“Great experience!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Wow! What a great experience. I was a bit scared in the beginning, but once in the cage I could only thoroughly enjoy the moment. Wé're now back in The Netherlands again, but the awesome pictures are looked at almost daily! Thank you!
