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.

We can now tick this off our bucket list thanx to Blue WIlderness. Everything was handled so professionally. I enquired as I am plus sized and within about an hour I got feedback that we could still do the dive. This experience was more than expected. Thank you so much for this to everyone at Blue WIlderness.

How awesome. You don't realise how absolute minute you are as a person until you meet face to face with these amazing sharks. It was an unforgettable experience with the best crew ever. Professional, trusted, experienced, friendly, soooo in love with what they do, and well informed. Definitely to be done for a third time again for my daughter (17)... More

My two sons wanted to do this and I was reluctant, but went along for the ride and to see them return alive. I was the last one in but in I went and it was fantastic. We all free swam, no cage. It helps to be very comfortable in the water because it is scarey at first so best... More

Honestly one of the scariest and most exhilarating experiences i have ever had, definitely highly recommended and this is coming from a person who has a fear of the ocean in general.

Very friendly staff, great experience, video could have entailed more of the experience, it doesn't show as much of the experience as you would expect but overall an awesome experience.
