Aliwal Shoal

This Marine Protected Area (MPA), found just off the coast of Umkomaas, is considered one of the world’s top warm water dive sites, attracting intrepid scuba divers from around the world to its spectacular marine ecosystem. Charter boats are available to take divers to the magnificent reef, alive with colourful corals, reef fish, turtles, whales, rays, and moray eels.

Divers are drawn to the clear, warm waters that provide incredible visibility across the reef’s intricate gullies and caves where Zambezi and tiger sharks frequent. There’s also the must-visit Raggie’s Cave famed for its ragged-tooth sharks, moray eels, and potato bass. Heading over to Outside Edge there’s even more marine life to see such as game fish and dolphins.
