All sharks and rays are handled with great respect and gently released after being brought to the boat. Hooks are removed and only quick degradable hooks are used on our expeditions and no stainless steel or galvanized gear.
Deep Sea adventures are Eco friendly
Our boats are designed by South Africans and build for the South African commercial conditions, in that they are large, but light they do not need massive engines to be powered, 90 to 115 horsepower does the job very significantly. We’ve turned eco friendly in that we switched to four stroke technologies which make an even more enjoyable journey without two stroke fumes, nothing to spoil the fresh ocean breeze in your face.
All our boats are catamarans and renewed for stability on the water, which has seen to the pleasure of thousands of happy clients and a 100% safety record since our existence about 12 years ago.
