Tour Itinerary

Day 1:
After arriving at Johannesburg International Airport from (New York, London, Paris, Benoni) you will then connect to Durban, where you will be greeted by our representative and transferred to a comfortable B&B on the KwaZulu-Natal South coast.

After settling in, your dive guide will give an in-depth introduction to the dive sites and dive techniques required as well as a boat orientation and equipment check. For dinner you will be taken to a local restaurant of your choice and then tucked into bed in preparation for the next day’s diving.

Day 2:
Enjoy two dives on the spectacular world-renowned Aliwal Shoal (rated one of the top ten dive sites in the world). From June to October the Ragged Tooth Sharks gather in large numbers on the shoal during their annual migration. Divers are almost guaranteed to see these docile sharks during their dives. Depending on weather and qualification levels, we may do a wreck dive as the first dive and a reef dive on the second dive.

In the afternoon, you are spoilt for choice with options to enjoy the warm water beaches, play golf, visit a crocodile farm or go shopping at the local curio stalls. Your guide and transport will be at your disposal should you wish to visit a watering hole before supper to recap the day’s dives and plan the next. Overnight at B&B.

Day 3:
Depart early for Shelly Beach and do two dives on South Africa’s premier shark dive site - Protea Banks. Besides Raggies, divers may see schools of Hammerhead Sharks or some Zambezi (Bull) Sharks stealing the fishermen’s’ catches. Please note that this option is for Advanced divers only.

The other option on this day would be to dive other sites on Aliwal Shoal.
In the afternoon visit the Oribi Nature reserve to walk a nature trail, try your hand at surfing or just relax on the beach or at a local watering hole before heading back to your B&B where you will overnight.

Day 4:
There will be no diving today, as you will be either flying home or departing for Sodwana Bay. Either way, you will first be taken to Durban to visit the Natal Sharks Board to see a presentation and shark dissection after which you will be able to spend a few hours at Gateway – South Africa’s largest and most exciting shopping experience. Another option would be to visit Seaworld and enjoy a dolphin educational experience.

On route to the airport you will enjoy a brief tour of Durban before you leave to catch your connecting flight home. If you are going on the “Taste of Africa” dive experience you will be transferred to Sodwana Bay by road. (4hrs)
