Incredible Diving

Aliwal Shoal25 Jan 2010 - 1 Feb 2010 with Aliwal Dive Centre

Diving for a week here offered a great variety of diving. Macro to Huge life. Amazing diving.

Rough conditions at times, can be difficult launching and landing. This diving is not for the faint hearted.

However can be totally worth it.

Variety of sites and opportunities, shallow and deep, all boat diving however.

Beware Blue Bottles stinging on the surface.

I've seen Leaf fish, turtles, incredible shoals of fish, huge potato cod, black tip sharks and Tiger sharks all in a week here.

Hello, Why is it off-season between September and mid November? Is it to do with poor diving conditions or other factors? Thanks in advance.

Hey T Anj, Moslty due to conditions, Weather and winds mostly. Also good to know alot of maufacturing companies close for Dec so diving and all hobbie and sports are in full swing in Dec and often easy to access Nov/Jan
