Just a word of thanks to you and Grant for a magic experience, we really enjoyed every minute. Hats off to Grant great skipper and shared some good knowledge with us, I will definitely recommend this to all my contacts. This was exactly what I needed for my team going into silly season.

"My dealings with Marine Scene both from Mediclinic, Geoff Bettison Consulting & Medics in Motion have been with a level of safety, expertise & professionalism. When working with Marine Scene, I know that I can relax due to the way that Grant Spooner & his team execute the D M Plan that has been compiled with precision.
Marine Scene oozes passion when on set or at an event. I have personally worked with Grant Spooner on numerous large events & movie sets, namely Red Bull Big Wave Africa, Red Bull Cape Town Man, Cadiz Freedom Swims, O’Neill Cold Water Classic surfing events, Challenge Cape Town triathlon plus many more.
It is a pleasure to work with an organised marine company that is passionate about what they stand for."

I have known Grant Spooner for nearly two decades and during that time always been impressed with his heart felt concern for treating marine nature with respect, it is one of his strongest guiding principles and one sadly lacking in so many others who work with the sea today. Grant is also an outstanding seaman and having worked with many operations in South Africa and abroad I can honestly say his ability to read the ocean as well as his respect and emphasis for safety on this often hostile environment is amongst the very best I am aware of.
As a seagoing operation I would have absolute confidence in reccomending Grant as a marine co-ordinator/skipper/guide where experience, safety, knowledge and awareness of the environment and it's wildlife are required.

The participants really, really enjoyed the Cape Point Powerboat Ride. Everything was very well organized and the timing was perfect. Participants quoted the powerboat experience as the ultimate thrill and unforgettable experience. Everybody, without exclusion, loved the ride as well as the unique opportunity to view the Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope from the ocean. Please send group’s complements to your staff, who were wonderful and special greetings to our skipper Grant, who was, to the group’s opinion, absolutely amazing! Definitely recommended for the groups & high end FIT.

We really did have an amazing time. Thank you so much for accommodating us at such short notice. It couldn't have been a more perfect day and Grant was an excellent guide. We took our Indian exchange student and my 16 year old son and the combination of exhilarating jet boat ride and the educational experience of seeing the sea birds, seals and even a whale was the highlight of their stay in Cape Town. Thank you Grant.

I came to Hout Bay, Cape Town from the UK to visit some family. While we were here we decided to explore the harbour and take a boat trip while we were there. Wow, what an amazing trip, not only was I blown away by how fast these boats can go, but was totally amazed at how close we managed to get to all the sea-life! And what sea-life there is….I saw dolphins, seals and all sorts of marine birds. This really was a trip of a lifetime!

Coming from New Zealand I had a sense of what natural beauty Cape Town would have to offer, but what I did not imagine is the kindness of the people of South Africa. Marine Scene is a perfect example of this. We had an amazing boat trip with them and the staff was so friendly! Led by a mad fisherman called Grant Spooner!!
