We booked 4 days in advance. I never got any confirmation so i called her but she had forgot our booking. No apalogies, she just tried to book us on a later date blaming the weather. That was not possible for us so she booked us on the original date (no problems with the weather). Then she tried to book... More

We were a group of 4 people who booked a trip to go shark cage diving sharklady. First, they forgot to write down our booking. We were informed of this mistake when we called to check up on them. Apparently they were overbooked, and at some point wanted us to change day due to poor weather. When we made it... More

We wanted to book a big smaller shark cage diving trip, since most of the operations around cape town seem to do massive tours with 20-30 people. On the web site sharklady adventures advertises that they do only two trips a day and with smaller groups so you get more time with the sharks. They also advertise you get some... More

Loved the whole experience and enjoyed the morning with Ladyshark. They were all very professional and friendly. The price was accurate for what you got with the whole group walking away with smiles. There is a small shop on the corner which sells/rents gopro mounts for 100 rand which was convenient. I would have liked a few more minutes in... More

The crew is very good, but I was treated with indifference by the owner. You know a good business when trouble arises, and she could even drop her phones for one minute to give us attention and solve it. Everyone told me, after, that I should have tried MArine Dynamics. In fact, they looked much more organized. They're the ones... More

We booked two months in advance with sharklady adventures for 6 people and the day prior they tried to cancel our reservation. After a small argument with the manager, they agreed to our date but different time of the day. When we arrived the manager tried to argue with us again (for what reason I have no idea since we...

I can't speak much to the actual experience, as I'm sure it was a good one. However, we booked our tour 9 days before the shark dive. The night before we received an email asking if we could change the day. We told them we were not able to reschedule since we were only in town for the night for... More
