Shark Diving Durban

Shark diving Durban will bring you up close and personal to the ever-inquisitive Oceanic Blacktip shark! These sharks are feisty and curious but you do not need to worry! Swim with them from inside or outside the cage for the ultimate shark diving experience! Our cage is floating and offers an unbeatable shark viewing experience

Shark Cage Diving Durban

Umkomaas and Park Rynie, near Durban, is the cage diving hotspot of KwaZulu-Natal! Oceanic Blacktips are spotted here in high numbers and this makes it the most common shark found along the coast of Durban. When cage diving, you can expect to see up to 20 sharks surrounding you! These sharks grow up to 1.8 meters! In general, Oceanic Blacktip sharks are not aggressive and appear to be cautious of divers.

Shark Dive Itinerary

Join us early morning, around 7 am, at our dive centre in Umkomaas and Park Rynie. From Umkomaas and Park Rynie, we launch our Superduck (awesome semi-rigid rubber duck boat) through the surf and ride about 20 minutes to a shark hotspot. Once we arrive at the dive spot, our crew bait the water with sardine and anchovy. Within 10 to 20 minutes, there can be anywhere from 5 to 25 Oceanic Blacktip sharks around the cage. You can look forward to spending at least 30 minutes (up to an hour) in the water as conditions allow. Stay inside the 4 to 6 person cage or snorkel around the cage and boat, freely swimming with sharks. Between January and March, we may be lucky enough to encounter a Tiger shark. After our dive, we pack up and head back to the land where you can warm up with coffee and hot showers.

Great experience. Everything was as promised. Everyone got 20 minutes in the cage which was more than enough to see the sharks up so close. The homemade vegetable soup served after the trip was delicious. Another five stars for the perfect ending. The whatsapp team responses quickly and keeps you upto date with detailed information. Thank you.

We booked the tour through Sharkdivers directly on the homepage. You give your credit card information for the booking, but pay when you arrive. We were welcomed with a hearty breakfast and after a safety briefing we started right away. The boat is large, comfortable and the trip takes 15 minutes. Upon arrival, we saw a seal after a few minutes and a short time later we saw around 8 bronze sharks. This was an incredible experience that I would recommend to anyone. The staff provided us with Information about the animals and made us feel safe. Surprisingly, we felt very comfortable in the cage. Everyone had enough time in the cage. Snacks and hot chocolate were provided. Clearly 5 stars, everything was great, we would book the tour again anytime.
