Shark Cage Diving - Swim with Sharks - Shark SCUBA Diving - These are just some of the great shark adventures that Blue Wilderness offers from our Shark Center in Scottburgh along Durban's South Coast. Our shark expeditions are suited for all levels of experience, age and confidence. Our goal is to allow everyone a safe, exciting and educational encounter with the sharks of Durban's Aliwal Shoal. We also offer Scuba Diving and during the months of May to July we follow South Africa's incredible Sardine Run.

Excellent outing. Competent, professional, personable, intelligent, and passionate staff. I went with my niece. I got a little sick, and you took care of me immediately and without incident. We also were blessed with about 50 dolphins! What a day!!!
