Driver also stopped for a quick coffee at Wimpys which was very much appreciated Once in Gansbaai, we signed in, paid for the trip and also picked up our rental... More

Amazing experience from start to finish, the team picked us up from our hotel and managed to get us on the 2nd trip of the day so we didn't have a 4:30am pick up which was a bonus. From the moment we were driving it was obvious this business are a good outfit, on arrival we were greeted with breakfast,... More

This was an amazing tour with a lot of sharks to be seen. Was one the major highlights of our 5 week stay in South Africa. Crew were excellent, bated sharks in for some nice photos and were very helpful when we asked questions. If you would like to see a great movie, which has won international awards.....watch Sharkwater. It... More

Whatever you do, go with this company!! The staff are so welcoming and kind and they really go the extra mile for you when you're out on the boat. We stayed an extra hour out at sea just so everyone could have an encounter with a shark, to me that shows how dedicated they are to customer service. The early... More

I can’t accurately describe how exciting and exhilarating it is to see great whites in open water. We were super lucky and had multiple sharks come to the boat during our trip out and some of them nearly touched the cage. It was unbelievable and definitely the best activity I did while in South Africa. They supplied us with breakfast... More

The good thing is: We saw some Great White Sharks. Actually the guys took us out on a boat, the y threw some fish into the waters to attract the sharks, but we did not learn anything. Focus was on shooting a film to sell afterwards. Water was tremendously cold and many people just decided to stay out of the... More

Nothing short of excellent from the time we were picked up. The pick up was prompt the breakfast was great, the safety briefing was to the point. After doing some research we found that shark activity is best during this time and we were not disappointed. Biggest seen on the day was a 4m great white. It's really something To... More
