An opportunity for anyone and everyone to witness a genuine ”Natural Wonder”.
Its been dubbed “The Greatest Shoal on Earth” Every year around June and July billons of Sardines “run” or migrate up the East Coast of Africa between Port Elizabeth and Durban.
What makes it a true marvel however is not simply the multitude of silvery fish but the host of predators that congregate en masse for the feasting.
The waters off the breathtaking Wild Coast literally boil as Dolphins, Sharks, Whales, Seals, Penguins, Cape Gannets and even Orca’s (Killer Whales) gorge themselves on the seemingly endless shoals of sardines.
For any person who is interested in diving with sharks or not but has an interest in the ocean this dive is a must, it makes the “Big 5” pale into insignificance. Your fear of sharks will change within seconds to instant admiration for these beautiful and graceful creatures that man has senselessly hacked to death for their jaws and fins for years.
As this is in the sharks natural environment there is never a guarantee that the Tigers will come to visit, but after years of testing techniques and 100’s of dives our sighting rate is very high. Whilst waiting for the Tigers to arrive there is an abundance of fish life around the boat and lots of opportunistic gray sharks feeding in the sardine slick so no one is ever bored.
This is a shallow dive so open water divers are welcome as well as snorkelers.
Before the dive there is a comprehensive briefing on the sharks and how we want you positioned in the water and there are also at least 2 shark guides in the water with the divers at any time.
