Some of the best shark diving experiences in the world are found along South Africa's KwaZulu-Natal coast, specifically at Aliwal Shoal.

The diving aim of this trip is to see as many different species of shark as possible - ragged tooth, oceanic black-tip, bull, hammerhead, guitar, white-tip and tiger sharks all frequent Aliwal Shoal. As well as observing the sharks, you'll learn how to identify different species, understand their behaviour and find out how sharks interpret your behaviour in return.

Spend a week diving the sites at Aliwal Shoal experiencing close up encounters with several species of shark as well as a huge variety of marine life including rays, turtles, dolphin, whales and much more. In addition there are two wrecks to explore. 

Conditions can be challenging, this itinerary is suitable for experienced divers and very popular for groups of like-minded divers.
