Your full day tour starts with a pick up from you hotel in Cape Town or surrounds. The exact time will be confirmed with you the day before the trip. Travel to Simon’s Town is just 45 minutes from Cape Town where you will meet the crew at the Apex Shark Expeditions shop. Guests are welcomed aboard White Pointer II. A full safety and weather briefing is given before departure.
Our shark tours to either Seal Island or Cape Point both offer very different opportunities. Possible shark species can include Seven gill cow sharks, Mako Sharks, Blue sharks and Great white sharks. 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. Whales, dolphins and many species of sea birds are often encountered on this adventurous expedition. As we adopt an eco style of operating our trips, going to sea with 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
Once we arrive at Seal Island or Cape Point, based on what the weather is doing, we will decide on the best spot to weigh anchor and begin attracting sharks to the vessel.
Sipping on fine wines while taking in the Cape’s scenic beauty is the perfect way to spend the afternoon after the excitement of a morning shark cage diving.
CONSTANTIA WINELANDS In 1679 Simon van der Stel was appointed by the Dutch East India Company to govern the Cape of Good Hope. After years of loyal service, he requested land from the Company. He periodically sent out riders to collect soil samples. In 1685 he chose 891 morgen (about 763 ha) situated behind Table Mountain for its wine-growing potential and magnificent scenery. Constantia Winelands was founded.
