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.

Blue wilderness provide an excellent customer focused approach to interacting with sharks. They have completely moulded a positive outset to them and I would most definitely visit there again. Maybe even take up a job offer and move to Durban! They are living the dream :)

The staff here are extremely friendly and knowledgeable, we all learned so much from them and gained such a great respect for these creatures. They made us feel safe, and there was no pressure on anyine to swim outside of the cage (although I do highly recommend it, as the sharks you swim with here aren't dangerous). We got given... More

My cousin and I visited Blue Wilderness for a shark cage dive a couple of weeks ago, and we were very impressed! 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

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
