Every trip shark cage diving out to Aliwal Shoal, situated just south of Durban, holds a new experience and incredible sightings of various species of sharks due to the diversity of the shoal’s habitats.

A shark cage dive typically involves getting into a wetsuit or a costume, donning a mask and climbing into a floating stainless steel cage so you can watch between 5 and 20 sharks that frequent Durban’s Aliwal Shoal gliding gracefully by the cage walls. This is a simple, yet incredible experience and one which can be safely enjoyed by almost all ages. Sharks can also be seen from the boat whilst swimming close to the surface.

We mainly work with Black Tip, Dusky and Spinner Sharks and they grow to two and half meters. In the summer we may also see the Tiger Sharks. Our Cage is attached to the boat at all time for safety as per SAMSA regulation and we don't take any scuba divers on the boat with you, we Specialize in Cage diving only and that's why we are the leaders.
