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.

We arrived and were offered free tea and coffee by a very friendly lady (I forget her name!), we were then given a briefing and any questions answered, before fitting wetsuits. We were then driven down to the... More

Swimming with sharks has been probably one of the 3 most exciting experiences of my life. Thanks to all the staff for being so professional and taking so much care of the customers. Always available for explanation even through whatsapp.

Always wanted to swim with sharks. Decided at breakfast that my daughter 14, son 11 and I will go. My wife called to make the booking and get more information. The lady that helped was Odette. All confirmed with a set time of 6am this morning. Got there and was welcomed by a very chirpy and friendly Odette. Offered coffee... More

Blue Wilderness does an amazing job at keeping you safe while having fun and educating you. This was a very eye opening trip because after the way media portrays sharks I did have a slight fear of them but after getting in the water with them you realize how gentle and truly misunderstood they are. I went on the free... More

had an absolute blast with the team. very cool personalities around that help you each and every step. the time in the ocean was absolutely amazing! only thing i would fix is the lunch you get after you have been on the boat and feeling a bit ill.

Decided it was an item i needed to add and scratch off my bucket list so treated myself to the Shark dive as a birthday experience. To say this was awesome experience would be an understatement. The level of professionalism, experience and comfort provided by Odette & her team was out of the world. I would definitely do this again... More

I can not describe in words how amazing was my experience there... First, they do an explanation about Sharks and how will go the experience. Later they drive you to the boat and it's the moment to go inside the sea! Once we were on the Shark's zone into the sea, you can go inside the water and swim with... More
