Dive 2 of the World's Top 10 dive sites

Dive 2 of the world’s Top 10 dive sites

Diving the Sardine Run has to be one of the most awe inspiring events for any diver.  This phenomenon is up to Mother Nature and so it is difficult to predict the time and currents that bring the sardines close to shore. Once Mother Nature has decided to send the sardines you can be sure to encounter sharks, a superpod of dolphins, whales, gamefish and Cape Fur Seals.

The Kwa Zulu Natal South Coast has become a popular destination for diving enthusiasts from around the world with colourful tropical reefs and wrecks and a stunning variety of sea-life to be found.

The pleasant all-year-round climate, the warm, clear water and excellent back up in infrastructure and facilities offers divers a uniquely pleasant diving experience in the winter months.

Although the South Coast has a large population of sharks, they pose little threat to responsible scuba divers. No shark attack has ever been recorded on a scuba diver in the province.

Aliwal Shoal, Rocky Bay, Landers and Protea Banks offer some of the best diving all with in close proximity of each other.

Aliwal Shoal was rated as one of the Top 10 dive sites by none other than Jacques Cousteau
