  • We had a great day getting the boat to deal Island to cage dive. Being greater by 1000’s of playful seals and seal pups was a huge added bonus! We got 2 turns each in the cage, with 4 in at once...  more »

  • If you want to eat best fish go to this place😀😀
  • On my 5 day Apex shark cage diving excursion to Seal Island, I was lucky enough to witness Great Whites in multiple forms of predatory behavior, swim bys and breaching, every single day! This was only possible with the enthusiasm, knowledge and professional expertise of the Apex skipper, Dave, and his crew of Ryan, Lacey, Bongani and Lunga, who operate a fun, friendly, clean and above all, organized boat. The Apex crew showed great compassion in respecting the animals in their natural habitat from a proper distance, never jeopardizing animal safety for the sake of a good photo op. Dave and Ryan in particular, both locals who grew up in the Western Cape fishing their whole lives, worked like ocean decryptors for the guests, answering our questions in detail, while meticulously scanning through the early morning horizons, spotting through waves, wind and deep down into the water for animals like: 1)Multiple pods of Orcas teaching their young to hunt. 2)A super pod of 500+ dolphins swimming alongside and under our boat for miles. 3)Great Whites visiting our boat repeatedly, ranging from 1.5-4 meters in size. The warm and lovely booking managers at Apex, Renee and Bernie, were fantastically efficient and clever in arranging options for my multiple scheduling requests and date changes, and pairing me up with Shirley, my hilarious partner in crime for a week, who drove me around exploring the beautiful local towns. My experience with Apex was better than I’d have ever imagined, and I look forward to coming back soon.
