Where to meet and when
We normally meet our divers at 7h00 am at our Dive Centre, no. 1050 Marine Drive St. Michaels on Sea.
It is advisable to check the times, when you book your dive with us.
Once everybody has signed in and received all the required kit we proceed together to the harbour at Shelly Beach
Our kit up area is free of sand, and you only have to walk 50m to the sea where the boat will be waiting.
After a worldclass dive briefing we proceed to the beach to launch the boat.

Daily Schedule
We meet at 7h00 and launch around 7h45. It takes about 15 mins to arrive at Protea Banks. After everybody has kitted up the dive master informs on the expected sea conditions like visibility, watertemp and current speed.
Once eveybody is completely dive ready the skipper drops the group at the exact GPS mark.
The dive on Protea Banks usually lasts between 35 and 45 mins due to the depth.
On our famous Baited Tiger Shark Dive the time under water is unlimited. Seldom less than 60 mins, often up to 90 mins.
Once a diver surfaces he will be picked up by the boat immediately.
When everybody is on board the crew does a headcount to make sure nobody has been left behind.
The return journey is quick and once the harbour master has given permission to beach the boat drives onto the beach at full speed.

About us

Company details

African Dive Adventures has been diving on Protea Banks, a world renowned shark-diving reef of the East Coast of South Africa (Kwazulu Natal) since 1994

If you are an experienced diver and would like to enjoy the thrill of spectacular diving with sharks, then you have arrived at the right address !!

We offer responsible fun diving for divers who like to be treated as adults.
With us you will be given a lot of underwater freedom to enjoy yourself to the fullest.

We will guide you professionally and safely on our reef and let you interact with our sharks and other marine animals without coming to harm.

We believe in ECO-Tourism and ECO-Education and our mission is to fight for the conservation of Protea Banks, the inshore reefs and their inhabitants such as the sharks, the dolphins, the whales and all the other creatures down the line.
It is also part of our mission to give each and every diver from near and far the best and safest possible diving experience on Protea Banks.

You will never be asked to look after a weaker buddy and you will never have to watch a beginner diver learning how to dive.

Come and experience the thrill of diving with wild sharks in their natural environment.........
