Sardine Run and Shark Safari in South Africa

REQUIRED DIVING EXPERIENCE

To participate on this trip you need a minimum level of qualification and experience. Please don't hesitate to contact us for a chat if you have questions regarding these requirements.

Minimum requirements are:

  • PADI Advanced Open Water, BSAC Sports Diver, or equivalent
  • 80 logged dives

This trip will offer diving under various conditions, and typically be from a RIB launched from the beach through big surfs. You need to be a fit and confident diver that can cope with currents, swell and periodically low visibility.

Most diving will be on submerged reefs and therefore you need to be confident diving with descents/ascents without a shot line or other visible references. Experience in use of surface marker buoy (SMB) is recommended.

On some dive sites, depending on the current, we might have to go straight down when we drop off the boat (empty BCD and no time to adjust equipment on the surface).

If the opportunity arises to participate in dives involving wreck penetration, decompression, or dives deeper than 30 meters, documentation of specialised education and experience are required.
