“We had an awesome time with Cape Shark Tours! We are a group of eight family members, and all of us are deaf, except two 11-year-old children who can hear. The crew went out of their way to make us part of the experience and communicate with us. The staff and crew were extremely deaf-friendly. We appreciated it! They are very knowledgeable and very accommodating. We were pleasantly surprised to find three showers with shampoo and conditioner that we could use when we came back from the trip. We felt welcome! The breakfast was delicious, and we were surprised with warm soup and freshly baked bread afterwards. It was amazing. The experience was unforgettable with all the sharks we saw. We saw a lot of sharks! You have to see with your own eyes how beautiful and peaceful they are. It’s sad to realise movies often make sharks out to be cruel, but I am grateful that we saw them for what they are. To top it all off, we got the greatest video so we can have this memory forever and share it with others.”  Happy Travellers
“Cape Shark Adventures is an absolute must-do for anyone looking to have an unforgettable and thrilling adventure! The staff are experts in all things shark-related, as well as the marine life around us, and are more than happy to share their extensive knowledge with you. And when it comes to the cage diving experience itself, you won’t be disappointed. The staff goes above and beyond to ensure you get the best possible view of the sharks and the surrounding marine life while keeping you completely safe. I can personally attest to how much I enjoyed every moment of this once-in-a-lifetime experience. But even if you’re not up for getting in the cage, you can still witness the excitement from the boat’s top. Trust me, this is one experience that you won’t want to miss!”  Inè-Marie Botes
