Aliwal Shoal

Southern Coast – Hammerhead Migration –
Shark Species


The Protea banks is a reef about 7 km off the shore of South Africa near Margate. this reef lies at a depth of between 27 and 40 meters, being 6km long and 800m wide. Protea Banks is one of the richest tuna grounds in the world, which is one of the main reason why there are so many Zambezi Sharks patrolling the reef. You will find this time of year we see the hammerhead migration with plenty of other shark species lurking around.

The Aliwal Shoal is a rocky reef which is the remains of an ancient sand dune approximately 5 kilometres off the coast of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. The reef is inhabited by many kinds of hard and soft corals and other marine invertebrates, also hosts a variety of tropical and subtropical fish species.  Here the Raggies come to rest and adorn the caves.

WOW what a top 5 Star diving school this one is… Absolutely the best training team. Dave & Amber are so dedicated, patient, caring and always making sure you are happy, comfortable and safe. I really can’t rave enough about them, they made the course fun, interesting & there was always laughter. I highly recommend them for any Diving level requirements, whether you are starting up or are looking for a refresher or any advanced courses, they are definitely the people to go to.
