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 absolutely amazing for me to be part of this experience. Personally being terrified of sharks and the deep water I was very calm and luckily only had approx. 3 sharks around us. One off the bucket list

It was absolutely unforgettable. Shark snorkeling by Blue Wildernis was great. There were good safety instructies and I have had a lot of fun. I felt safe and they made me feel comfortable which is important. I'm glad having the pictures!
