One scuba diving operator, two amazing shark diving sites.

Aliwal Shoal, South Africa - Ponta Do Ouro, Mozambique


Dive Sites

We operate at two of the top shark diving sites in the world, the Aliwal Shoal in South Africa and in Ponta Do Ouro in Mozambique.

Our dive packages are for 'Qualified Scuba Divers Only' so dives and dive sites will not be restricted by having student divers on the boat.

We specialise in small groups - maximun 8-divers on your boat.

Aliwal Shoal, South Africa

The Aliwal Shoal is situated about 5-kms from the small diving town of Umkomaas and is rated as one of the top shark diving sites in the world.

At the Aliwal Shoal our aim is to dive with the many species of sharks found on the Aliwal Shoal in South Africa including Tiger Sharks, Ragged Tooth Sharks, Blacktip Sharks, Bull Sharks, Hammerhead Sharks, Guitar Sharks, Whitetip Reef Sharks and more.

Sharks are our main focus and depending on the species we are wanting to see, our dives take place on either the reefs or the wrecks and some of our dives are baited shark dives.

Our baited shark dives take place on the southern end of the Aliwal Shoal and the focus of the baited dives are to dive with Tiger Sharks, Blacktip Sharks, Dusky Sharks, Bull Sharks and sometimes other species.

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 attacts a large number of pelagic fish. We have loads of very special unique species [e.g. Paper Fish].

Water temperature ranges between 23C and 25C during our summer [September to May] and to 20C and 22C in our winter [June to August].

Shark Diving takes place ALL year at the Aliwal Shoal - High Season for the Ragged Tooth Sharks is April to November.
