Spend seven days on the reefs of the Kwazulu Natal South Coast where you are guaranteed of quality shark diving all year round. Join a group on a dedicated week of diving and observe the abundance of Shark life around the Aliwal Shoal. During this exciting week you will learn about the behaviour of sharks towards divers. After a few dives you will easily be able to read the individual species of sharks’ behaviour and how you should dive with them to get the best possible interaction.
The week starts with a briefing about the shoal and talking about the possible interactions that the group will have with sharks throughout the week. The group will start with reef dives on the first couple of days and get a feel for the area. On these dives you could at any time have fantastic encounters with sharks so keep an eye out! During the months from April – November you should see many Ragged Tooth Sharks (Sand Tiger) and in recent years they have been present on Aliwal Shoal all year.
Shark Week Durban is very well tailored for groups and individuals with 8 rooms at the lodge which can cater for either a couple or 2 singles. The lodge is stunning and has a communal living room, two swimming pools, a large entertainment area and full dive centre. There are two boats available to allow for ultimate flexibility and experience throughout the week. The lodge has ocean views, there is an option to eat-in with home cooked food and also during the week you will have the opportunity to try the local restaurants in the area.
