Sharks

Aliwal Shoal and Mozambique's 'Pinnacles Reef' are, without doubt, the world's premier shark diving sites.

There are many shark experiences around the world but normally one can see only one or perhaps two species. Off KwaZuluNatal and the southern Mozambique coasts we have a wide range of species which can be admired in their natural environment.

Please note that to see sharks requires careful planning of site, time of year and even time of day. Divers choosing to do our alternative 'non shark' dives have virtually no possibility of a chance shark encounter.

The species most often seen are:

The Ragged Tooth Shark (Eugomphodus taurus, Grey Nurse Shark)

The Zambezi (Carcharhinus leucas, Bull Shark)

The Tiger Shark (Galeocerdo cuvier)

The Great White Shark (Carcharodon carcharias, Blue Pointer Shark)

The Scalloped Hammerhead (Sphyrna lewini)

The Whale Shark (Rhiniodon typus)


Sophie Verdoux from Mayotte says 'My unbelievable shark dive 6 January 2018 with Peter Griffiths of Discovering Africa Safaris'. In one 50 minute dive we saw 6 shark species --6 Bull sharks, a Silvertip,a Dusky, Oceanic Blacktip, lots of Scalloped Hammerheads and a huge 4 1/2 metre Tiger shark.Click
