From the time that I booked this online in the UK to the day of the trip itself I knew I was dealing with a competent and well run organisation. We booked a private trip because we wanted to spend longer at the Harold Porter Botanical Gardens, as well as visitng the penguin colony and the whale watching at Hermaneus. Our guide. Andrew, planned the day well and even had a good knowledge of the plants at the garden. we saw many penguins and also a number of Southern Right Whales. We enjoyed lunch at a good waterfront restaurant. This is a first class operator and can be recommended for any organised tour in Cape Town.

Tour was excellent! We had a great time. Beautiful sights. Shawn was a great tour guide! We recommend this tour.
There were five adults on our trip and although we only saw whale ‘blows’ in the distance at Hermanus and the boat trip was cancelled due to weather we still had a great time. Andrew was our guide and he was brilliant. He was professional, knowledgeable and he ensured we were his top priority. We couldn’t ask for more. We visited Betty’s Bay to see the penguins, a wonderful botanical retreat and finally Hermanus. The whole experience was great so we can only imagine what it would have been like if we’d seen more whale action. We would certainly recommend this tour and highly recommend Andrew as the guide.
Andrew was an awesome host and guide and is easily accessible on WhatsApp. His background and knowledge of the area made me happy that I not only took the Hermanus tour (culminating in a whale watch that was one of my finest wildlife experiences EVER) but also arranged a wine tour, cape peninsula, and shark cage diving tour with him. He deserves lots of thanks for making my Cape Town dreams come true! Book with shark and safari. You won't regret it.
We were recommended Shark and Safari by the Outlook Lodge in Johannesburg. As we were travelling to Cape Town we decided to go speak to Andrew and Theresa at there office to see if they could help with our very specific photography hopes and wishes for Great White Shark and Whales. We were glad we had, as we got a very in-depth insight into how the marine animals are acting this time of year. As wild life photographers this was extremely valuable and useful. So we booked a private tour to Hermanus with Andrew and this was a fantastic adventure out with Andrew adding his wealth of knowledge to the trip. We were chartered to sail with Southern Right Charters for the Whales as to our tight schedule and short notice. Good friends of Shark and Safari. Now knowing wild life well its not always what you would expect and you would be a dumb ass to think other wise. This is not a zoo but the open ocean. With this trip we saw Humpback Whale and this was truly spectacular. Once back on land we carried on our tour with Shark and Safari and was treated to some spectacular sights on the way home. We Highly Recommend any one wishing to chase whales and sharks to book with this company. They go above and beyond and are very well connected to the other specialists in the bays for any information needed. Currently as of July 14th 2019 there are no Great White Sharks in Falls Bay due to global warming and Orca activity. This is golden info if you are planning a trip. Shark and Safari will locate and book you in to where there is such activity. We thank you for such an excellent service. L&S
