Apex Shark Expeditions is a licensed shark cage diving tour operator.
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.
The ethos behind our business is based on our love for the wildlife we encounter. Chris has worked with sharks and other marine wildlife since 1989 when he started a shark tagging project with local subsistence fishermen in False Bay. Nearly 40% of our clientele are return guests and our longer expeditions are led by some of the world’s most respected shark scientists and biologists. This gives all who attend take part, a great opportunity to experience these animals holistically. Chris Fallows is a world-renowned wildlife photographer and his work has been published around the world.
Apex Shark Expeditions is therefore on the cutting edge of marine wildlife photography giving photographers who take a tour with us, amateur and professional alike, fantastic guidance to capture the best possible shot without compromising the animals. This is why we have been the first choice shark company for many of the world’s top wildlife photographers and film crews. BBC’s Planet Earth, Discovery Channels Air Jaws 1, 2, Ultimate Air Jaws and Air Jaws Apocalypse, various National Geographic shows and nearly 40 other documentaries have all been exclusively or partially facilitated by Apex Shark Expeditions. Monique and Chris have been going to sea almost daily for the last 18 years and are driven by their passion for marine wildlife.
It is our hope that through our expeditions, you will come away with an appreciation for the wildlife we are fortunate enough to encounter. While the sharks are our primary focus, we adopt an eco-system approach and our trips are much like going on an African safari. Seeing the Great White Shark should be a highlight in anyone’s life. As such we believe that this experience should not be rushed. Consequently, our shark cage diving trips are longer than any other operators with the smallest group sizes in the industry. Weather conditions and shark behaviour can be unpredictable, so shark sightings are not always guaranteed. However, we will try our best to offer you the best possible chance to see these majestic creatures.
We offer the smallest group size of any shark diving operation in South Africa by 50%. Therefore 40% of all Apex guests are repeat guests, the highest repeat rate in the industry!
What this means for you:
- An educational experience where guides will interact with you as an individual.
- Longer time and less guests in the cage on average per person of any shark operation.
- Lots of space to be able to see and photograph the sharks from a specially designed vessel that offers both high and low photographic options.
- More flexibility for us to spend time looking at other marine wildlife.
