Are you ready to descend into the world of sharks on SCUBA? then slip into the water for and come for a Shark Dive at Durban’s Aliwal Shoal for an encounter of a lifetime! Drift along with upwards of 20 blacktip sharks on a baited shark scuba trip
Floating weightless on a drift shark dive surrounded by upwards of 20 blacktip sharks may be viewed by the uninitiated as a nightmare! But we know that for SCUBA divers, this is the stuff of dreams! At our dive site, we love nothing more than drifting along with our guests, taking in all the antics of the blacktip sharks flocking around us.
On this dive, we typically descend down to between 4 and 8m, drifting over the shoal. This allows us to enjoy the fish life of the shoal below us, and the sharks all around us. Your shark Dive at Durban’s Aliwal Shoal often lasts upwards of an hour (for some reason its hard to get you guys back onto the boat !). The shallow depth we drift at, allows us to use our air sparingly.
After your Shark Dive at Aliwal Shoal, when we are all satiated and happy, it is a quick trip back to the Blue Wilderness Shark Centre, where we treat you to hot showers, a hot lunch, and all the comforts you need sit back; put your feet up and relax. It’s time to reminisce about your Shark Diving Aliwal Shoal adventure.
