It was such a long way from Cape Town city literally takes the whole day for about an hour boat ride and only 10 minutes in the shark cage. Would not recommend if you do not have much time. Not worth it.

Dave was our driver and absolutely fantastic! It was a 2.5-3 hr drive to Gansbaai and Dave kept us entertained with history and conversation the whole time. We were contacted ahead of time and had great conversation about where we were from (Dave researched our state before he arrived), what to expect, and was in no short supply of “dad jokes”, also went out of his way to ensure we were able to visit a penguin colony. Highly recommended to feel safe, be picked up in a beautiful car and enjoy the ride. Honestly an easy brained compared to the other ride options. The shark diving was also fantastic, very humbling to see large sharks emerge out of the merry water (about 5-7 separate sharks) Also saw a beautiful, curious stingray.

This experience was by far the best I’ve had on the many international trips I’ve take. Our tour guide, Mike, was the nicest, funniest and most knowledgeable person we met in Capetown. Mike was telling us facts about Capetown and history of SA from the minute we were picked up till he dropped us off. He was an excellent driver and made it his goal to be safe, while making sure we all had the best time of our lives and we did! I would recommend not only this package, but Mike as your tour guide for anything you do in Capetown. The whole time I felt safe with him and had a blast. Thank you so much for that great experience Mike! I will never forget this day and will be telling everyone back home to ask for you.

Born in Africa tour guides are beyond wonderful. Super responsive, helpful, and great communicators. Shark diving is also a once in a lifetime experience too.

This was an outstanding experience start to finish. Our guide picked us up punctually in Cape Town, and our ride to Gansbaai was comfortable. The handoff to the shark diving tour was seamless and smooth. The actual diving was amazing. We saw 7-8 copper sharks repeatedly. Incredible. Ride home with our guide, Dave, was smooth again. He was an excellent source of information and warm conversation. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole trip. Highly recommend!
