Overview

On the Unlimited Aliwal Shoal Diving Adventure you will get to dive all the best dive sites on the Aliwal Shoal Reef System. You will get to dive on our Southern Reefs (conditions dependent) which are deeper and more advanced dive sites for added adventure. These reefs are very seldom dived, and as a result teaming with life. Our 2 awesome wreck dives on Aliwal Shoal, the MV Produce (sank 1974) @ 32m and the Nebo (sank 1884) @ 24m, also make for awesome dives. Last but not least you will get to do several baited shark dives.
