A great opportunity to experience all aspects of Shark behaviour and witness these creatures in their natural habitat!
At Apex Shark Expeditions we operate half-day shark tours ALL YEAR round to either Seal Island or Cape Point as both offer very different opportunities and visibility. Possible shark species can include Seven Gill sharks, Mako sharks, Blue shark and the Great White shark.
Apex is like going on a safari game drive and we will try to take in as much marine wildlife as possible on our trips.

Meet the crew at the Apex Shark Expeditions shop. After a light breakfast, we will deliver a full safety and weather briefing aboard White Pointer II before departure.
Depart for Seal Island which is a 25 to 35-minute boat ride based on sea and weather conditions. Should Cape Point be the location for the trip, the boat ride is +- 50 minutes.
Arrive at Seal Island.
Based on what the weather is doing, we will decide on the best spot to weigh anchor and begin attracting sharks to the vessel. The cage is then deployed, where it floats next to our vessel.
Once a shark approaches our boat, bait is kept in the water to keep the shark around long enough for identification, viewing and cage diving purposes.
If the weather conditions are favourable, guests will be readied for cage diving. Safety precautions and operational procedures are then explained to any guest wishing to enter the cage. It is important to know that the sharks come very close to the boat so it is not necessary to dive in order to see them. Those not wishing to dive will still have excellent views of the Sharks.
A light lunch (including a vegetarian option), accompanied by soft drinks, fruit juice, bottled water and a variety of snacks are available throughout the course of the morning.
White Pointer II will arrive back in Simon’s Town Harbour depending on the weather conditions and shark activity.
Tea and coffee are available at our home base in Simon’s Town. Take this opportunity to browse through our unique range of shark-related merchandise.
