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.

I can not describe in words how amazing was my experience there... First, they do an explanation about Sharks and how will go the experience. Later they drive you to the boat and it's the moment to go inside the sea! Once we were on the Shark's zone into the sea, you can go inside the water and swim with... More

This was a fantastic way to spend half a day in Durban. I felt very safe thanks to the safety briefing and the staff helping in the water. So many sharks! The pictures and videos they took were also great!

Not only did Blue Wilderness provide an amazing experience, they strive for conservation. Odette and company were knowledgable, skilled, and dedicated to their work. The operation is first class from the briefing to post dive sandwiches. It is very refreshing to dive with an organization that does not capitalize off of the "adrenaline sensation" of shark diving. Their goal is... More
