My friend and I really enjoyed this experience! The communication throughout was great, we received responses within hours and the responder was kind, helpful and patient at all times. The trip was well organised, everything went according to plan and the meeting point was easy to find. Once we were on the boat we had a great crew that took very good care of us and enabled us to see 4 Great White Sharks. I can only applaude Apex, I would definitely recommend and even re-book with them. Thank you again for this memorable and unique experience.

Service and experience were equally stellar! Karyn provided expert info ahead of booking and accommodated last minute changes in plans without any fuss. When the weather turned without warning on our scheduled dive in False Bay, Karyn took the initiative to pre-book us on a Gansbaai dive with the option to change again. Would highly recommend Apex.

Shark cage diving in Mossel Bay. Karyn Cooper did an unbelievable job helping me arrange cage diving from USA. We emailed back and forth many times and she was so patient with my many questions! The sharks were incredible!!!! Great whites are massive and we saw 5 different ones! The boat crew was awesome too! It was well worth the money to see great whites! Thanks again Karyn!!!

We had the most amazing time on our shark week experience with APEX SHARK EXPEDITIONS from 6/10/21 through 6/18/21. Karyn Cooper did an outstanding job of keeping in contact with me over the course of nearly two years, since our original Shark Week trip and Kapama safari in June 2020 were cancelled due to COVID. Karyn set up all the shark excursions, accommodations, and even provided us with our own, personal driver, Solam'e, a kind and charming woman, not to mention an excellent driver. Solam'e chauffered us from Cape Town Airport to Simon's Town, Mossel Bay, Gaansbai, and Plettenberg Bay. She even brought us back to our hotel in Cape Town before we headed on to our safari at Kapama Game Reserve. I am so grateful to have met and spent time with her. We have some pretty great pictures together. Karyn was pretty much our personal travel agent, and I was thrilled to finally meet her when we got to Simon's Town. I don't know what I would have done without her, and she was so patient with all my questions and requests throughout the booking process. I was also surprised and delighted to meet Chris and Monique Fallows after an enjoyable shark trip to Cape Point with Apex in Simon's Town. Chris and Monique spent at least a half hour chatting with me about sharks and even treated me to dessert. I was shy to ask, but Monique offered to take a photo of Chris and me. I was elated. I just wish I had asked to get a picture with both Chris and Monique. :) They were so friendly and made me feel so welcome and comfortable. I wish we had more time to spend in Simon's Town. Another nice surprise was having drinks with Alison Towner in Gaansbai. She was wonderful and so interesting to speak with. As one who is passionate about sharks, I could have spent hours just listening to the stories and experiences of Chris, Monique, and Alison. The different crews I met on the shark activities and also at Kapama were friendly and knowledgeable. They made each experience pretty darn amazing!! We saw a total of ten great white sharks during the course of the six day shark week trip with two great white breaches on decoy seals. We also saw African penguins, a massive sting ray, and other marine life such as seals barking and basking themselves in the sun, and plenty of fish. The animals, safaris, and food at the Kapama Game Reserve were also incredible. This was truly a lovely and an unforgettable eight-day vacation that had been on my bucket list for years. I'll always cherish the memories from this adventure. It was so worth the COVID tests and long travel times to come from Utah, USA to experience South Africa's great white sharks, safaris, and all the wonderful people we encountered along the way. Thank you again Karyn and Apex for fulfilling my dream. Best wishes and many thanks, Mindy McDermott Utah USA

Thank you Mindy for such a great and detailed review. It was our pleasure to have hosted such a wonderful guest like yourself. Your persistence and determination in making your own dreams become a reality in what can only be described as one of the most trying times in history are admirable in itself.

Fantastic! Karyn was alongside us every step of the way and very attentive to timing and needs on specifically seeing the Great Whites, a bucket list activity!! And we sure did see them in Mossel Bay, where the chances of seeing them are way greater than in Gansbaai.. Top level experience and 5 star rating!!
