Shark-Cage diving gives everyone the chance to experience the thrill of the ocean and see some of its top predators and, even children, if accompanied by adults, can have a turn.

Aliwal Shoal is located just off the coast from Umkomaas only a 35 minute drive from Durban making this a great family adventure. You’ll be given a wetsuit and fitted with a mask and snorkel.  Safely in your cage, which floats just below the surface, you’ll make sure you keep your fingers and toes to yourself before you settle in and watch the best marine documentary you have ever seen. Aliwal Shoal is home to a large variety of sharks ranging in sizes up to an intimidating 5 meters.  Tiger sharks, ragged tooth sharks and black tip sharks are just some of the usual suspects. Your fear will quickly turn to awe as these magnificent creatures, so defamed by the movie Jaws, trailing a zillion bubbles, flash past you in a stream of silver.
