Shark Cage Diving - Swim with Sharks - Shark SCUBA Diving - These are just some of the great shark adventures that Blue Wilderness offers from our Shark Center in Scottburgh along Durban's South Coast. Our shark expeditions are suited for all levels of experience, age and confidence. Our goal is to allow everyone a safe, exciting and educational encounter with the sharks of Durban's Aliwal Shoal.

We also offer Scuba Diving and during the months of May to July we follow South Africa's incredible Sardine Run.

These guys are conservationists first & foremost - no silly sensationalism - they love the sharks and respect these beautiful creatures. The whole trip was amazing from start to finish. We swam with what must have been at least 25... More
