Through experience we have proved that you can view these apex predators safely and have done so hundreds of times.

1st Leg - The "Raggie Close Encounter" Dive

Leg Duration: 5  Days

During the Raggie high season the Raggies that have followed the annual migration of the Sardines, move onto the shoal in there hundreds. It is speculated that they move in there to escape the fierce currents that are found off the Kwa Zulu Natal coast and the abundance of food. Although they have gouged themselves on sardines all the way to our relatively warmer waters as opposed to the Cape waters. They come here essentially to copulate. Although one of the fiercest looking sharks they are unusually calm and accommodating posing for the photographer at every opportunity. The “Raggie Close Encounter” dives are spectacular. You will be lead through the dive by Walter Bernardis the owner of African Watersports Aliwal or Tyrone Bernardis his son as they demonstrate how relaxed the sharks are. If you fall into the category of Shark enthusiast, then it should be placed on top of your “dives to do” list. They come right up to you with their menacing mouths gaping displaying their very impressive set of dentures that fall out throughout their lives. It is these same teeth that end up on necklaces and proudly displayed by Shark divers around the world.

1st Leg - The Africa Tiger

Leg Duration: 5  Days

There are very few places in the world that one can view Tiger Sharks in their natural environment. Individuals who have been to all these places like Gerard Soury, have commented that nowhere else in the world can one have the quality & safe viewing as on the Aliwal Shoal. See his latest book “Requiem et Liberte”. This dive takes place on a smallish reef about 1km south of the Aliwal Shoal known as Eelskin. At a depth of about 14.5m there is a natural cave from where safe viewing of the baiting station can take place. You would normally launch at about 09h00 and anchor above the cave and commence with the surface work to bring in the Tigers, you would then dive down to the cave and do approximately a 1-hour dive before returning to the boat. Back on the boat we would continue with surface work to view thee magnificent creatures on the surface. After snacks and at least a 1-hour surface interval you would return to the cave and again view the Tigers in their natural environment. We would then return home at approximately 14h00 – 15h00 after an adrenaline filled day at sea.
