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 were a group of around 7 people. They picked us up at the hotel and when we arrived at their office, the briefing started: very informative and interesting talk. Everything she was saying was very engaging yet in a simple manner to understand. Wetsuits are in good condition. We were also offered tea and coffee, which was very necessary... More

Honestly the best planned shark diving group of people I have seen. Everyone wants to help you and you will struggle to find this at other shark diving companies.

We can now tick this off our bucket list thanx to Blue WIlderness. Everything was handled so professionally. I enquired as I am plus sized and within about an hour I got feedback that we could still do the dive. This experience was more than expected. Thank you so much for this to everyone at Blue WIlderness.
