Shark Cage Diving “SHARK!!!!”

Shark Cage Diving “SHARK!!!!” This tour was beyond my expectations. My wife and I took the morning Shark Trip our first day in South Africa.

The team from African Shark Eco-Charters was extremely professional and knowledgable and I felt completely safe (well as safe as can be when you are face to face with a 12 ft great white) with them as our guides. I highly [...]
