Amazing, professional & passonate about their amazing job. We saw 6 beautiful Great Whites sharks up close & active. With shark sightings becoming fewer around South Africa, it was a dream come true to see these fantastic beasts.

They say their website is down, and I don't have a phone #, as our Garden Route driver called them - but if you go to their facebook page you can contact them through that!
