Great Experience to cage dive with the 7 gill shark. The staff were great and very helpful. Wet suits kept you warm. While waiting for turn you get to watch the seals. It was great to see the sharks up close. I would definitely recommend.

I visited Cape Town with my son in 2016 as a 50th birthday gift from my wife (lucky me). The whole reason for the trip was the great white And apex didn’t disappoint even if we had not spotted any whites, witch we did apex where top class very kind to nervous people and they did every thing possible to attract the sharks it was the trip of a life time if you do one great white trip go with APEX. By the way the white we saw was 4 meters she was beautiful thank you apex you made my dream come true.

The staff were so kind, caring and fun! They looked after me and my friend and helped her a lot when she was sick. The first trip we went on we didn’t see any sharks but we did see a huge sting ray and loads of seals! They kindly rescheduled another boat trip for us, we went to cape point this time and we saw seals, a whale, blue sharks and mako shark! There was loads of food and snacks on board. Thank you to all the staff who made our trips so enjoyable! We had an AMAZING time!
