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.

It was a great experience. The boat ride was like a side-show ride. I must say I was expecting a larger boat in which you did not get so splashed with sea water in your face on the way out. The sharks were amazing and the staff were great.

The whole Blue Wilderness experience surpassed my expectations- and then some. Odette and her team are experts, clearly adore what they do and know exactly how to get the best out if you. I still can believe I swam with sharks outside a cave!!! Myself and my boyfriend loved every minute
