A Shark Lover's Dream

Our packages extend across all three shark hotspots in South Africa. If none of the packages work for you, we will custom a package to suit your specific requirements. Please email us and we'll create the perfect shark vacation ever.

An extended time frame allows guests to get to know the different sharks, their distinct personalities and experience a wide range of shark behaviour.  It also allows for amateur and professional photographers to bag that highly sought after shot. 

 

After a few trips, you will start to recognise the individual sharks and get to know each shark’s character. This is a hugely rewarding experience.
