I totally fell in love with this company, all its crew, admin staff and even the great white sharks!!! We booked our shark dive almost 8 months ago. At that point in time I was the suffering wife of a total "shark geek husband" but went along with the whole 'tick-it-off-your-bucket-list-thing' I'm very fortunate to have travelled throughout most of my early 20's to many different countries and crossing paths with many different companies/people and I tell you no lies when I say the team of people at Apex are right at the top of my list for EVERYTHING.... From customer service, friendliness, safety, knowledge, patience and ensuring you get the best out of your experience with them!
We booked a 5 day trip with Apex, after all guys we are dealing with nature here... It's not an aquarium as some people on our tour mistakenly thought!!!! I actually found this part the most exciting... Not knowing from one day to the next what was going to happen!! The crew are as excited as you and every morning there is a buzz in the air as you head out to seal island to see what you can find! We were extremely fortunate that none of our trips were cancelled due to bad weather and we saw everything from beautiful sunrises, seals, Dolphins, sharks around the cage, to sharks breaching. Just being around this knowledgable crew and listening to their stories and learning all about the island, the seals and the Great White Sharks and their behaviour was a treat in itself!!

Chris and Monique - Thank you for founding this amazing company and sharing it with the world.
Bernie and Ranay - From the moment we stepped into the Apex office we felt like we belonged, your customer service is A* you have such loveable personalities.
Dave - I have never met a "skipper" before, but I already know none can match you!
Dominic - I'm not even being biased because you are British.. You are such a genuine friendly person and have the patience of a saint. Thank you for helping when I felt sea sick and helping me get the best out of this experience, it wouldn't have been the same without you!
Kirsty - Thank you for flying the "chick" flag so well, you were so welcoming and friendly. You also have the patience of a saint and a wonderful knowledge of the island!
Ryan - Your knowledge and expertise is second to none! Thank you for being so much fun and teaching me so much!
Ounga - You have the biggest smile in the whole of South Africa!!! Thank you for being so welcoming and friendly, you amazed me everyday with your steady sea legs!!
Bungani - That image of you at the back of the boat on the bait line with a shark behind you is a memory that will be etch on my mind forever! Thanks for being awesome at what you do!
As you can tell I am now a self confessed shark geek, all because of these amazing people in the amazing company! Being up close and personal with these fabulous animals and learning so much about them is an experience I will never ever forget!
Thank you Apex!!!
