We offer two shark dives each day, generally one shark dive on the reef or wrecks and one baited shark dive
No student divers and no minimum numbers.
Extra dives are available if required.
Aliwal Shoal is rated as one of the top shark diving sites in the world.
Over the years we have dived with 13 different shark species.
Our main species of shark include :
Ragged Tooth Sharks
We also see other sharks from time to time including Great White Sharks, Dusky Sharks, Whitetip Reef Sharks,
and sometimes even Whale Sharks.
The Aliwal Shoal is also home to a huge variety of other marine life including Dolphin, Turtles, Rays, Eels, Game Fish,
Reef fish & more. The area attracts a large number of pelagic fish. We have loads of very special unique species [e.g. Paper Fish].
[High Season : June to November]
The annual Humpback Whale migration passes the coast of Aliwal Shoal each year between June and November.
Enjoy the sights of the breaching whales from our lodge as well as from the boats.
Between dives the Humpback Whales offer a great show, enjoy watching them as they pass by the Aliwal Shoal.
During the Humpback migration, we hear the sounds and song of the whales while we are scuba diving, sometimes they are so close you feel the vibration in your chest.
We are also also sometimes also lucky enough to see Humpback Whales on a dive.
A truly amazing experience.
