With over 200 different sharks species, South Africa is a hotspot for shark cage diving, shark diving and shark snorkeling adventures. Our goal, here at Blue Wilderness is to take you sea-wards to enjoy close encounters with these charismatic animals. We cater for everyone, from beginners to highly experienced professionals, with our diverse array of shark encounters and SCUBA dives. Whilst based at Scottburgh on Durban’s South coast (where we run daily shark cage diving and SCUBA diving adventures on the Aliwal Shoal), we are 100% mobile, and you will find us guiding our guests all over Southern Africa, getting you in the right place and the right time for the ultimate shark encounter.
