Shark Cage Diving Durban

Umkomaas, 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. From Umkomaas, 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.
