Renee and Bernie are amazing!! I had only two days in Cape Town and they set me up with a shark dive for the following day with less than 24 hours notice. They were so kind and accommodating with my schedule, and when I couldn’t get a dive in Cape Town with Apex, they quickly booked me a dive in Gaansbai with a sister company. They were on hand at all times in case I had any questions and were super easy to communicate with. Love Apex and cannot recommend them enough to set you up with a once in a lifetime experience!

We had a fantastic experience with Apex. They brought us out for ~3 hours for cage diving with sharks and had a perfect time. They're clearly professionals at this and took care of everything; we just showed up and had a great time. We saw 3 different sharks and had plenty of cage time. Would highly recommend to everyone!

I have not had the pleasure of going shark diving with these guys, but it is on my bucket list. However, I have purchased two photos from Chris and Monique and they are both amazing. I get so many compliments about the photos, and I love how they are scientists as well as tour operators. I am planning to go back to Cape Town for a holiday and shark diving with these guys is number one on the list.

Apex Predators staff and crew were beyond amazing. my shark cage dive experience was amazing. The crew were very informative and very hands on from helping us get into our wetsuits to taking videos and pictures. I got to see how they chum the waters as soon as we anchored and not even 5 minutes we had sharks all around our boat. Great white sharks have been a rare sighting, but we got to see 1 at least that circled our boat out of curiousity. we were surrounded by copperhead sharks around 8-9 in different sizes at any given time. Going down in shark infested waters was the 2nd most amazing thing I have done. The crew was very focused on peoples safety at all times and very friendly. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY FOR ITS CREW AND PROFESSIONALISM. THANK YOU ALL AGAIN FOR SUCH AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE.
