Shark Cage Diving Durban

Every trip shark cage diving out to Aliwal Shoal, situated just south of Durban, holds a new experience and incredible sightings of various species of sharks due to the diversity of the shoal’s habitats.

Why Shark Cage Diving?

Many shark species are being pushed towards extinction due to uncontrolled, destructive fishing methods. The slaughter of millions of sharks to continues each year unabated. This is mainly because of the lack of compassion and understand the average person has for these animals.

We view the Shark Cage Diving experience at Durban’s Aliwal Shoal as a vital way to connect people with healthy shark populations. As a result of this experience, we hope to increase the level of focus, awareness and compassion people have for sharks.
