Our PADI Courses cover and uphold the standards set forth by the Professional Association of Diving Instructors. We have various courses available for varying levels of diving experience.
The baited tiger shark dives take place to the south of Aliwal Shoal. We chum the water to create a scent corridor that attracts the sharks to the boat. We have two bait drums, one that attracts the smaller sharks (like the oceanic blackips) and another that attracts larger species (like the tiger sharks). We spend a minimum of 60 minutes in the water, during which time we may see as many as 50 sharks in their natural habitat.
Are you ready? Let’s do it!
We recommend that you read the Discover Scuba Diving option first unless you are sure that Scuba Diving is for you. In that case, we recommend that you skip the Discover Scuba Diving option and take a closer look at the PADI Open Water Certification. This is the entry level certification and will qualify you to dive up to 18 meters depth worldwide.
Would you like to further your skills? Our Advanced Open Water Course is the next step in advancing your skills as a qualified scuba diver and allows you to dive deeper and explore more interesting sites. Take up a speciality and become part of the world’s experts! You can also take up individual courses that qualify you in various aspects of scuba diving like photography and emergency first response
