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.

Shark diving with Blue Wilderness submerged us into the world of the Indian Ocean. We LOVED being so close to black-tip sharks. Two of us had cage-dived before, but this was amazingly better--fantastic! We will do it again next time without a doubt. We experienced terror at the thought of swimming near sharks (but couldn't resist anyway), then took an... More

Shark diving with blue wilderness was the best experience I've had in South Africa. Not only was the swim an incredible experience, but the team were friendly and very accommodating. If I could I would swim with Blue Wilderness every day!

I went to SA mainly to see sharks, and woow - I saw sharks! Blue Wilderness is really professional and friendly and the sharks were many and close to us. If you want to see these amazing creatures up close in safe and raw conditions - Blue Wilderness is the place to visit!

This is one of the highlights of my holiday to SA and believe me after two weeks there including four days on safari and two days in St. Lucia it had some stiff competition.

This trip was amazing. The staff/crew was very knowledgeable and skilled; as well as very friendly and willing to answer as many questions as possible. The black tips were very cool and as promised we had lots of them. My only complaint would be that we didn't see any raggies on the actual tank dive, but that is luck of... More

I finished my open water certification just a couple of weeks prior to this trip. During our dives I always felt safe and well looked after. We learned about shark behavior and what to look for and what was expected of us before we entered the water. Our dive master guided us through an awesome relaxed exploration of the shoal,... More

Its great to hear that you appreciated our staff! We are very fussy about who gets to guide our clients, as we need to always ensure that an expedition is professional, exhilarating and educational! Sharks need our love, and everyone who leaves Blue Wilderness needs to be an ambassador for shark conservation! More
