I cannot recommend Extreme Scene highly enough. We did two great days out with Gareth and his team and both were brilliant. They go the extra mile and make you feel like a local. Don't go anywhere else folks.

Gavin really did seem like a great guy, but the tour itself was not great. While most people on Trip Advisor claim that they saw great white sharks, this is not the case. The sharks in all of the pictures from reviews are actually not...More
