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.

Not only did Blue Wilderness provide an amazing experience, they strive for conservation. Odette and company were knowledgable, skilled, and dedicated to their work. The operation is first class from the briefing to post dive sandwiches. It is very refreshing to dive with an organization that does not capitalize off of the "adrenaline sensation" of shark diving. Their goal is... More

The whole team are focussed on customers having a fantastic experience - but they do so with the relaxed nature of people that love what they do. We had a very informative briefing from Odette, who was also very helpful in the communications beforehand to make sure weather... More
