    What an incredible eco-tourism experience that I hope will make more people appreciate and want to protect sharks! There were sharks galore during my trip, all within inches from my face, thankfully from the safety of the diving cage. The Marine Dynamics staff were also all very friendly, responsive, and accommodating.

    A few things worth noting: First is that you are unlikely to see a Great White, as they have cleared out the area due to Orca predation. Even so, the multitude of Copper Sharks I saw certainly didn't disappoint! Also, FYI that if you're staying in Cape Town, Gansbaai is a 2-3 hour drive, so you will spend a bit of time in the shuttle. Trust me, it's worth it! Plus, our driver was great.

    Overall can't say enough good things about this experience!

    Other than the fact we were picked up at 2am everything went well. We were driven to Gansaii given a safety briefing and a wet suit with goggles. We were taken out in the boat to shark alley and eight at a time climbed into the cage. Your head is out of the water and when the spotter yells shark to the right you take a deep breath and duck under the water. My only problem was try ing to take a picture while I was doing this. The sharks don't stay still but I did manage to get two pictures of them. After it is over and your are back on land they give a small breakfast.

    This was an outstanding experience start to finish. Our guide picked us up punctually in Cape Town, and our ride to Gansbaai was comfortable. The handoff to the shark diving tour was seamless and smooth. The actual diving was amazing. We saw 7-8 copper sharks repeatedly. Incredible. Ride home with our guide, Dave, was smooth again. He was an excellent source of information and warm conversation. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole trip. Highly recommend!

    Beautiful 2 hour driver early in the morning. Enjoyed 3 hour adrenalin in the ocean. Better shark dive ever for me. This must not be missed when in Cape Town

    Had a fab experience. Very friendly and professional team. Welcoming and ethical. Only thing that could be improved is using snorkels? instead of having to hold breath to dive but really amazing all the same! Thanks
