2 x Shark Dives Aliwal Shoal -- Overnight Aliwal Shoal, South Africa.

After breakfast we meet at the dive centre to kit-up and prepare for the days shark diving on the Aliwal Shoal. The diving starts with a surf launch from either the Umkomaas River or Umkomaas Beach depending on the tide and conditions.

Our focus each day is to dive with sharks on the Aliwal Shoal in South Africa. The Aliwal Shoal is home to many species of shark including Tiger Sharks, Ragged Tooth Sharks, Blacktip Sharks, Bull Sharks, Hammerhead Sharks, Guitar Sharks & Whitetip Reef Sharks.

The Aliwal Shoal is also home to a huge variety of other marine life including Whales, Whale Sharks, Dolphin, Turtles, Manta Rays, Devil Rays, Eagle Rays, Ribbontail Rays, Moray Eels, Game Fish, many species of reef fish & much more. There are also two wrecks that we can scuba dive, the MV Produce [1974] & the Nebo [1884].

Each day we dive with sharks on the reefs or wrecks of the Aliwal Shoal. Depending on the species we are aiming to see, some of our dives are baited. Our baited shark dives take place on the southern end of the Aliwal Shoal. Whilst our main focus of the baited shark dives is to scuba dive with Tiger Sharks, we also often get other species of shark joining us on the dives including Blacktip Sharks, Dusky Sharks, Bull Sharks and sometimes other species. Before our shark dives, we will give a full briefing to help you to understand the sharks behaviour and how we behave in return.

After the shark diving we return to the lodge where there are hot showers and a secure wet-room to store your gear, ready for the next days shark diving. In the afternoons if the conditions allow we offer extra scuba diving or relax at the lodge, walk on the beach or visit local attractions.
