About 100 species of shark occur off the Southern African coast, some are mysterious and illusive and seldom seen, but many of those that are seen occur around Durban’s South Coast.
Durban’s warm and inviting Indian Ocean makes any sea based activity that much more attractive and Shark Cage Diving is no exception.
The small coastal town of Umkomaas, a 40 minute drive from Durban along the lush South Coast, plays host to most Shark Cave Diving operators in Kwazulu Natal due to the proximity of Aliwal Shoal a spectacular reef 5 kilometers off the coast, rated one of the top 10 dive spots in the world. Grey Nurse sharks, black tips, ragged-tooth sharks and hammerheads are just some the species you might come across. Operators are world-class so that your shark encounter is safe and comfortable leaving you to relish this life changing experience.
