Apex Shark Expeditions has run specialty Great White Shark predation and breaching trips for over a decade. Many of the world’s most famous breaching shark images have been taken during these expeditions and our personalized and small group sizes offer our guests the ONLY photographic and natural history opportunity like this available in South Africa.
Chris and Monique Fallows and the Apex staff and crew have contributed to, or co authored, more than 10 peer reviewed scientific papers on predatory behavior and our work has been seen in more than 50 world renowned wildlife documentaries such as all nine episodes of the famous Discovery Channels Air Jaws series as well as BBC’s Planet Earth, Life & Shark. After 20 + years of operation we also have an extensive array of connections along the South African coastline that allow us to get the best real time information on where to see the best behavior.
Our expeditions, by virtue of the fact that our groups are small, allow us to be extremely flexible and mobile in terms of where we position ourselves each year so as to maximize our likelihood to see and photograph this behavior.
Based on the best activity at the time of the expedition we may position ourselves at one or more of the famous great white shark locations in South Africa.
The expedition also focuses on other amazing photographic opportunities and if conditions allow open ocean pelagic shark, whale, dolphin and seabird viewing and photographic opportunities may be undertaken on one or more days.
This highly flexible expedition recipe has resulted in us getting some remarkable images in the past few seasons despite the unpredictability in exactly where and when the best Great White Shark activity can be expected.
