We booked our shark dive as one of the highlights of our trip to Cape Town. We were really dissapointed in the whole day.
We completely understand that shark viewing is seasonal and we didn't go at the optimal time, so we were prepared for us to not see as many sharks as in the peak season for viewing.
However, it was not the fact that we only saw three sharks that dissapointed us.
This company took on board 33 passengers when I have now found out that most other shark dive company's only take a maximum of 12 - 15.
On board, there were only 12 wetsuits and 8 pairs of goggles. Ridiculous for the amount of people on board.
We were promised drinks and nibbles and received a box of plain potato chips and nothing but ice tea. Not even any water for those that were being sea sick overboard!
The toilets didn't work and were a disgrace.
The staff couldn't have cared less weather we saw sharks or not, they were just there to get their money. It was a total sham and I would recommend booking through someone else. We were the furthest boat out to sea and the other shark dive boats were closer to shore and looked like there was more action going on on their boats, with way less people.
When we returned, lunch was supposed to be ready for us, however, we waited an extra 20 minutes for our lunch, and then they had the ordasity to charge us for a coke and a beer!! After we had spent almost 500 bucks on a crappy boat and saw 2 sharks the whole day! ....with no food or drink!
This company should be ashamed of themselves and I can't beleive they don't feel guilty for the absolute rip off day they are giving people. Not to mention the DVD they tried to charge us 30 bucks for afterwards which had nothing but a seal and a few whales on there.
Not the super adrenaline charged experience we thought we were in for.
