Tiger Shark Dive

Describing the Tiger sharks cobalt-blue stripes fading gradually into fractional silver, hardly does justice to this mesmerising fish. The skin of a tiger shark is one of the most appealing sights in the ocean. 

At world famous Aliwal Shoal, in Umkomaas near Durban,  you can SCUBA dive with the charismatic tiger sharks and see their blue-silver stripes for yourself. Seeing a tiger shark sliding silently past you shimmering in the filtering sun rays and the blue water, is the main goal of this baited tiger shark dive with Blue Wilderness.  During this shark diving activity you’ll be on a shallow SCUBA dive, drifting along just under the surface watching the sharks as they glide effortlessly, dorsal fins slicing the water. 

Relax and allow our team to look after you, thereby ensuring that you have the adventure of a lifetime. Here’s a small tip- something  that you can look out for- the eyes of a tiger shark are the prettiest of all sharks. One look into the huge dark eyes of a a tiger shark and you’ll be mesmerised and hooked!
