Shark Cage Diving Cape Town

Since 1996, Apex Shark Expeditions is a licensed shark cage diving tour operator. We are well known for our eco-system styled approach to our shark diving experiences, rather than just being shark-centric, we offer our guests the chance to step back and stay naturally connected. From ubiquitous penguins; to the melee of 64,000 seals; the rush of riding alongside a pod of dolphins; to the awe of a predatory shark; our aim at Apex is to take you back to that place where you found peace and a connection with the natural world during an unprecedented time. If the Covid-19 pandemic has taught us one thing, it is how much so many of us have missed connecting with family and nature.

Do it together! Bring your family and join us on an adventure into nature.

#1 Great White Shark Cage Diving in Cape Town - South Africa

Our Ethos: Respect, admiration and passion for wildlife that is shared through a safe, educational and personal experience with every guest who we are fortunate enough have join us.
