Protea Banks offers an exceptionally exciting specialty Shark dive for locals and international visitors alike.
Situated 7,5km off Shelly Beach on KwaZulu Natal's South Coast, Protea Banks allows advanced divers the opportunity to experience a shark dive that is completely unique. During the summer months the Bull Shark (Zambezi) makes Protea Banks its home. Hammerheads are often seen overhead and not just one or two, we are talking hundreds, yes hundreds. Guitar Sharks, Coppers and Blacktips frequent this reef with a select few getting the privilege of seeing the elusive Tiger Shark.
In the winter months the The Ragged-Tooth Sharks congregate on Protea Banks to mate. Aside from sharks Protea Banks also boasts a vast number of gamefish such as Barracuda, Snappers, Yellowtail, Kingfish and Potato Bass to name but a few. Baited Shark dives are now done on Protea Banks, with great success. For more information please do not hesitate to contact us!
