The Adrenaline Rush of Shark Week

Take 7 days out of your busy schedule to focus on one thing: Sharks! We have all heard about Shark Week on television, but did you know that you can experience all this and more in Umkomaas, Durban? For 5 days you will scuba dive on the awe-inspiring reefs of the famous Aliwal shoal on the KwaZulu Natal South Coast. The Aliwal Shoal is a rocky reef about 5 kilometres off the coast of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, that is the remnant of an ancient sand dune. Sharks, hard and soft corals, and other marine invertebrates, as well as a range of tropical and subtropical fish species, call the reef home. On your first day, you will arrive at Durban’s Ushaka International Airport. From here, you will be transported to our dive lodge in Umkomaas, a mere 1-hour journey. This is where your 5-day scuba diving adventure starts! Meet early morning for double tank dives on Aliwal Shoal daily for 5 days! Your adventure also includes a baited Tiger Shark dive. These apex predators can be discovered just a 20-minute boat trip from the Umkomaas River launch site in the warm seas of the Indian Ocean. On your final day, you can enjoy a scenic drive back to the airport.
