I called them the day before the tour because I had not heard of a pick up time at my hotel, they told me the tour was cancelled because of the weather (25 degrees and sunny forecast) and Expedia should have contacted me. I then called Expedia and they had not heard anything about the cancellation. I’d using avoid this company.

Very well organised; the crew was very helpful & friendly; and of course the sharks were absolute stars :) Total adrenaline rush.

Other than the fact we were picked up at 2am everything went well. We were driven to Gansaii given a safety briefing and a wet suit with goggles. We were taken out in the boat to shark alley and eight at a time climbed into the cage. Your head is out of the water and when the spotter yells shark to the right you take a deep breath and duck under the water. My only problem was try ing to take a picture while I was doing this. The sharks don't stay still but I did manage to get two pictures of them. After it is over and your are back on land they give a small breakfast.

Not as scary as I thought it would be. We saw 8 sharks in all. The cage never leaves the side of the boat. As a photographer I did get some very nice pictures and there is some video taping so you can get a DVD when it is over.

Trip has a very early start but they provide a breakfast when you arrive, about a 2 hour drive. They run over the security and what to do and expect- very funny guy! The water can be choppy, so remember that Dramamine! They hadn't seen any great whites in about a week due to orcas in the area, but as soon as the first cage went in, there they were- amazing! (Bring a go-pro!). I didn't go in but got some amazing shots from the top deck. All wet suits provided and boots but in June the water was very cold ( my main reason for not getting in!). The cages go down with 4 people at a time for approx 20 minutes each, then you switch groups. Each group gets 2 turns. Then it's back to the facility for hot soup and rolls before heading back to Cape town. Amazing experience, well worth your money.
