No GWS but copper sharks didn't disappoint us. Cage was safe and lived up to all expectations and more. Crew great and helpful. Breakfast and lunch supplied with a great choice.

Hello Julie, well as far as I can recall, we paid £120 each. This does include refreshments before and after the dive, but not transport as we drove to Gaansbai. There are a number of companies who offer the experience but... More
