Sharkdiving Aliwal Shoal
Oceanic Blacktip Sharks 23712/2011
A divetrip to Umkomaas near Durban. 3 days of beautiful diving over christmas 2011 (Dec 23rd-25th 2011). I found some more great dive buddies and dive guides in Walter, Jilles and Barbara. Had absolutely amazing days above and under water! Thanks guys!
Come with me! Join me for a dive into diving with sharks at Aliwal Shoal. The sharks we encountered down there were mostly oceanic blacktips, wonderful elegant and majestic creatures. Enjoy!
I had three days of diving with Barbara, Walter and Jilles, three great reef dives at Aliwal Shoal (I will try to make another blog soon). On two of them we saw the raggedtooth sharks, and I had three great shark dives. We saw between twenty and maybe more then fifty oceanic blacktip sharks. On two of the dives there were tigersharks around, but did not come closer. The blacktips were exclusively females, no males in sight. Maybe somewhere else in the vicinity, because one of the females had bitemarks. The blacktips are beautiful creatures, swimming around us, restless, elegant swimmers. And not really interested in divers. Only interested in the bait fish, not at all in human divers...
