We took our 14-year old grandson to Cape Town to dive with the Sharks. He has been a "shark-guy" since he was a toddler. We scheduled our shark dive for our last day in Cape Town--poor planning. Our original dive at a bay east along the coast from Cape Town was canceled the evening before our scheduled dive day. We has limited Internet access so we had difficulty locating an alternative shark dive vendor. Our daughter, 10000 miles away in Seattle, devastated that our grandson's life-long ambition might be crushed, took up the search for a dive on the only day available to us--tomorrow. Luckily, she found African Shark Eco-Charters and Nadine, their front-desk/ticketing wizard. Nadine called us on our cell at about 8:00 or 9:00 PM local (Cape Town) time to tell us that they had found a place for us on their dive leaving in the morning! (Why was Nadine not at home sipping a mellow merlot? I don't know, that's the kind of outfit African Shark Eco-Charters is.) So, we booked with Nadine that night and our grandson's shark dive was saved.
So, how was the dive? Fantastic! If we had known of African Shark Eco-Charters we would have booked with them in the first place. The crew on the boat was very professional and Leigh, on-board Marine Biologist, made the outing stimulating for even us old fogies who weren't going into a dive cage. Our grandson? He loved it! When we return to Cape Town, African Shark Eco-Charters will be our first choice.
