Join ALIWAL DIVE CENTRE for an amazing fun filled trip on the Sardine Run. Our staff has over 20 years’ experience on the Sardine Run, so we know our stuff!
This is an annual event that takes place along the ‘Transkei Wild Coast’, coast line. During the months of June & July, cold currents move inshore allowing the sardines to move along the east coast of South Africa basically a range extension, in the cold nutrient rich water. Apart from the sardine bait balls that one can see, there is also the annual migration of the Humpback whales that are heading north to give birth. There are super pods of Common dolphin, thousands of Cape gannets, Bottle nose dolphin and sharks galore.
This event known by BBC as ‘The greatest shoal on earth’ is an adventure for everyone, whether you are a diver or a non diver. All nature lovers and adrenalin enthusiasts will thoroughly enjoy this amazing spectacle of nature.
ALIWAL DIVE CENTRE bases itself in the scenic town of Port St Johns, where the boats launch out of the Umzimvubu river, we have been doing the sardine run on this coast line for over 10 years, therefore our skippers and dive guides have an extensive knowledge and experience of where to find the best “action” for our clients.
