We are the founders of SHARK FEST, and with South Africa being a shark Mecca, having a huge diversity of shark species one can see why we can offer a shark guarantee. Our SHARK FEST will take you directly to the sharks of the area, for an up close and personal encounter. Our highly experienced guides will ensure an adrenalin filled experience with these majestic creatures of the deep. During SHARK FEST you will learn a lot about our sharks, and hopefully our passion for these incredible animals will flow over to you. We also offer shark cage diving, where there is no experience necessary. Even if you can't swim, come and see sharks all around you from within the safety of a SAMSA approved stainless steel cage! A definite bucket item list and an adrenaline rush of note!!
