Itinerary: 10 night South Africa Tour
Dates: 12th - 23rd November 2016
Accommodation: Shelly Beach and Umkomaas

 

Shelly Beach is a beautiful town from which to explore the subtropical waters of the Indian Ocean that border the eastern coast of South Africa. Located in the Hibiscus Coast of KwaZulu Natal, Shelly Beach was named after the many beautiful shells that wash up onto her shores. African Dive Adventure's [ADA] Diver Villa is located in Shelly Beach. The Villa accommodates up to 12 divers, and provides plenty of space to relax and unwind. The infinity pool creates the illusion of flowing directly into the ocean, complemented by the spectacular views over the rolling hills and sparkling waters.

Umkomaas
is a small coastal town along the south coast of KwaZulu Natal. Located 48 km south of Durban, the town sits alongside the mouth of the River Umkhomazi (also known as the Umkomaas River), and opens up into the subtropical waters of the Indian Ocean. Set in lush tropical gardens, the Agulhas House is perfectly situated for divers to explore the nearby Aliwal Shoal, a volcanic reef approximately 5km offshore. With a backdrop of landscaped gardens and two pools, there is plenty of space to relax and unwind.

Itinerary Highlights...


Protea Banks is 7.5km from Shelly Beach, and one of the best places in the world to go shark diving. Lying at a depth between 27-40 metres, this 6km long reef is one of the richest tuna grounds in the world. The density of the tuna population attracts a plethora of marine life to the reef, making it one of the most exciting places in the world for scuba divers who love adventure.

Aliwal Shoal is rated as one of the top ten dive sites in the world, and is known for its spectacular marine life. The volcanic reef lies approximately 5km offshore from Umkomaas, and is approximately 3km in length. There are a varying number of dive sites at variable depths, allowing for novice and experienced divers alike to catch a glimpse of the spectacular marine life. Ragged tooth sharks, tiger sharks, bottlenose dolphins, turtles and even humpback whales are known to frequent the waters around Aliwal Shoal.

All dive sites are subject to weather conditions and cannot be guaranteed.
