Overnight? Stay at accommodation in Durban Central, in KwaZulu Natal

'Ssssshhhh don't wake the fish!’ You'll be excused for thinking that you are the only life force raised as you ascend before the sun and head for the horizon.

This official Natal Sharks Board (NSB) water patrol departs with an entourage of seagulls at sunrise waking you before the wind and handing you over to choppy waters whose warm fresh spray keeps you awake and alert. Epic views display Durban Harbour as you begin boating along Durban's 'Golden Mile' of Indian Ocean coastline and beaches.

Natal Sharks Board marine experts share the environmental intricacies of the local shark, dolphin, sea bird and fish life with occasional 'volunteers' revealing themselves as examples. Weekends witness the servicing of the shark nets approximately 400m offshore at depths of 10 -14m.

All live sharks are tagged for research and conservation then released into the deep. All deceased sharks are brought back to the Natal Sharks Board for a display dissection. Every precaution is taken to reduce the mortality of shark life due to the shark nets. The discovery of sharks in the nets is rare but the adventure is in the exciting yet educational 'water ranger' experience which is overall as rewarding as 'Finding Nemo'.
