Our shark expertise means we often personally feature as presenters or hosts of these shows. Chris is well recognised as the host of the Air Jaws series and is regularly involved in other documentaries.

Our vessel is custom-built for film and photography and allows film crews and photographers the freedom to walk around its entirety to find the best angles to shoot from.

False Bay offers an opportunity without equal for photographers wishing to see a rich diversity of wildlife. Our photographic expertise allows us to help amateur and professional photographers alike to get the best possible shot without compromising the wildlife.

We have worked with many of the world’s top marine cameramen and bring a host of film and photography experience to the table, thoroughly understand the needs of television and film professionals and are equipped to guide and direct production crews to get the best footage possible for their specific requirements. Filming has also exposed us to many amazing camera technologies.
