We had a fantastic trip out shark diving with marine dynamics !! All equipment was provided for as we'll as adequate breakfast and lunch and snacks. The staff were very friendly and informative and we got lots of shark viewings and encounters. We also went out to dryer Island to view seals. We spotted whales and dolphins along the boat on the way back. Best of all the company is involved with research and conservation!! Amazing trip would highly recommend. One of the highlights of our trip to SA!

Thank you for your great review. Yes, many people don't know that this is also a great area for whales, dolphins, seals, and penguins and we're doing research on them all! See you again soon! Cheers, Michelle - MD.

After 3 straight days of all dives having been canceled due to weather and a return flight home fast approaching, my wife and I changed our flights and then contacted Marine Dynamics who went out of their way to make space for us and get us on-board the next morning. Prior to departure, we were concerned re: the number of divers per trip but given our circumstances we had no other option... in the end it wasn't an issue at all (25-30 divers in total) and we had an excellent time. I'd be more than happy to go with Marine Dynamics again and would certainly recommend them to a friend.

Thank you very much for your comments, I am so glad we could get you on the boat! I hope travelers read this review, don't mess with the ocean gods - plan a few days for a cage dive just in case there is bad weather. Hope to see you again soon! Cheers, Michelle - MD.

What an incredible experience! Something I will remember for the rest of my life. Beautiful and majestic sharks. Never realized how beautiful they were. It was also so much fun to watch them play around the boat. So much more respect for them after this trip.
Staff was so knowledgeable and helpful.
I think I might have to add this to my bucket list again.
