I was with a group and we had booked pretty last minute ( the day before!) - we booked after we heard that there were some shark activity the previous day. We were sent an email of what to prepare for, including taking sea sickness medication as needed.
On the day of the adventure, we arrived in Simon's town around noon, and was met by a beautiful day. The total excursion took about 4 hours, and we were met by a very professional crew who were knowledgeable about the shark's habitat.
We were told that there were shark sightings in the morning, but after waiting for about 3 hours on the boat, no sharks came. Some of us had already changed into the wetsuit, and the crew let us jump in the cage just to see what it's like even thought there were no sharks.
At the end of the day, we were presented with vouchers to come back again within the year (that were transferable, so I plan on selling it online). Unfortunately, our time in Cape Town didn't allot another day for us to spend another day, but it was a nice gesture even though it wasn't the crew's fault that no sharks showed up.
