Dive into the heart-pounding world of shark encounters with Shark Cage Diving KZN, a premier operator in the realm of underwater exploration. Our esteemed founder, scuba diving maestro John Miller, is a true pioneer in Shark Cage Diving within KwaZulu-Natal. We invite you to embark on a unique journey at the mesmerizing Aliwal Shoal, located just south of Durban.
Your Gateway to Shark Exploration
Nestled within a convenient 60-minute drive from King Shaka International Airport, Shark Cage Diving KZN is strategically positioned at Rocky Bay, the safest launch site on the Durban South Coast. Our expertise lies in delivering an array of shark-related experiences, including Shark Cage Diving, Snorkeling with Sharks, and Shark Viewing at Aliwal Shoal in South Africa.
Encounter the Ocean's Apex Predators
While conventional shark cage diving often unfolds in the frigid waters of Gaansbaai, Cape Town, with a primary focus on the awe-inspiring Great White Sharks, our Aliwal Shoal locale boasts a warmer aquatic environment. Here, you'll have the chance to come face-to-face with various shark species, including Blacktip sharks, Dusky Sharks, Spinner Sharks, Tiger Sharks, and Zambezi Sharks. These captivating creatures may be smaller than their Great White counterparts, but their charm lies in their preference for smaller schooling fish as their main prey. Your safety is paramount, and our cutting-edge 4-man stainless steel shark cages, compliant with SAMSA regulations and meticulously designed for both diver and shark protection, ensure a secure and spacious environment for your adventure.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that brings you closer to an array of shark species in Aliwal Shoal, making it a perfect outing for families, friends, and colleagues.
