Description

A half-day trip for two divers with Apex Predators in South Africa

Value: $392


Dive with sharks and meet the legendary Chris Fallows of “Air Jaws” Fame. If you’ve watched Discovery Channel’s Shark Week, you are already familiar with Chris and Apex Predator Shark Expeditions; Chris has been featured in many episodes of Shark Week.  This is an opportunity to join Chris on a trip to Seal Island and view the 65,000-strong Cape fur seal colony —  the largest  seal colony in Africa. A second area is cage diving and surface viewing off the spectacular back drop of Cape Point and Cape of Good Hope.

The location for the day will be determined by the best shark activity and sea conditions and will be confirmed with you the day before your trip. Both offer very different opportunities and underwater visibility. Possible shark species may include Seven Gill sharks, Mako sharks, Blue sharks and Great White sharks. Whales, dolphins and many species of sea birds are often encountered on this expedition.

Chris adopts an eco-system style of operating the trips. Going to sea with Apex is like going on a safari game drive and they try to take in as much marine wildlife as possible on their trips.
