Baited Shark Dive

Oceanic Blacktip

Pictured here is Smiley – with that distinctive grin, she’s a hard one to miss. Smiley is known to come round with her colleagues for some sardine treats on our bated dives. A succinct example of how humans can impact sharks, and a lucky duck, (or shark…) to live the life she does!

Shark & Reef Dives

Tiger Shark

These sleek beauties come around on baited dives during our summer months here in the southern hemisphere when the water warms to the mid 20’s. They command respect with their mass and elegance, though they are also known to be quite shy. To say the least, it’s a rush and a treat to share the water with these creatures.

Reef Dives


These charming, grandfather-ly sea creatures are all on the Vulnerable to Critically Endangered species list, yet the bustling shoal offers divers a chance to find them. While they’re in the neighborhood, they stop to munch on algae, crustaceans, insects, seagrass and worms among other tasty morsels.

Reef & Wreck Dives


These guys all start out as girls, and the males of the species are known for their colorful appearance once they’ve changed from females. Some, such as the Harlequin Goldies are endemic to the KZN waters, and thus far have only been found on deep wrecks such as the Produce.

Reef & Wreck Dives


A sea slug named for their exposed gas exchange organs (Naked gills), they have a habit of weaponizing their food. They are known to use stingers, venom and other chemicals from hydroids, jellies, sponges, and even their own species as defenses incorporated into their own anatomy. Their coloration makes for striking photographs if you’re lucky enough to find one!

Reef & Wreck Dives

Pineapple Fish

A unique little fish with hard, pointed spines and a glowing mouth. The green or red glow is a result of bioluminescent bacteria that live symbiotically in organs next to the mouth of the fish. These little guys are quite shy and difficult to spot, but come try your luck with our talented divemasters.
