  • My son and I had an amazing experience with Apex. We departed from Simon's Town (near Cape Town) South Africa and stopped at Seal Island. On the way there/back we saw dolphins and a whale! Once we sto...  more »
  • Recently came back from Capetown and what we thought was going to be one of the highlights of the shark dive was a bit disappointing. We booked thru an agency and were told that no great whites have s...  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.
