Delve into the mystical shark world. Take in the stunning surroundings of Durban’s Aliwal Shoal. Dive in for an exhilarating shark cage diving adventure that is open to everyone.


  • Snorkel and swim with oceanic black tip sharks on the Aliwal Shoal
  • Choose whether to stay in the cage or to mingle with the sharks
  • Learn about shark behaviors and conservation efforts from your guide


Your shark cage diving adventure starts at 6:30 AM. All equipment will be provided for you, so only bring yourself, a sense of adventure, and a swimsuit. After a wake-up coffee, your guide will brief you on the diving adventure. This will include biological information on the sharks and the procedures that will be followed to ensure that you have a safe, educational, and enjoyable shark adventure. You will then move to the changing rooms to be fitted with a suitably sized wetsuit, mask, and snorkel. Once you have changed into your wetsuit and safely stored any valuables and keys, you will hop onto a vehicle for a two-minute drive down to the launch site. At the beach, you will give an excited wave to your videographer, who will film and edit an expedition video for you, and arrive at the 26-foot semi-rigid vessel. The guide will give you a quick boat safety briefing and hand out life jackets. From here, you will climb onto the boat.
