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.

An incredible experience. Odette, Muller and the team are fantastic. I'd snorkeled the day before for the first time, the went here to snorkel with Black Tip Reef Sharks! An incredible thing. The team really know how to look after customers. The video and photos they take for you are class. Loved it.

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.
