South Africa - Durban
Who Should Enrol?
Situated about 8km off Shelly Beach, on the KwaZulu Natal South Coast, Protea Banks is a unique reef system, with an amazing topography. The presence of a great diversity of game fish attracts a wide variety of top predators seen in only a few places in the world!
Protea Banks offers an exceptionally exciting Shark dive. Divers have the opportunity to experience a Shark dive that is completely unique. There are only a few places in the word that you can see such a wide variety of Shark species and it is certainly not uncommon to see up to 5 different species of Sharks on a single dive on Protea Banks!
From June to November thousands of Humpback Whales migrate from the Southern Pole to the warmer waters of KwaZulu Natal, giving us an amazing show during our boat trips to and from Protea Banks and we have had incredible underwater encounters with these magnificent Whales! Dolphins are also a regular sighting throughout the year.
What Will You Experience?
The Bull (Zambezi) Shark and Oceanic Blacktip shark are encountered throughout the year on Protea Banks. In the warmer months Hammerhead Sharks are often seen overhead and we are not just talking one or two, we are talking hundreds and hundreds! They make their appearance from September to January, with November and December being the months with the most regular sightings of Huge schools of Scalloped Hammerheads. From January to June, one also has the added privilege of seeing the elusive Tiger Shark. During colder months hundreds of Ragged-Tooth Sharks congregate on Protea Banks to mate. Dusky and Copper sharks also make an appearance on Protea Banks.
