More about Single Dive

If sharks are what you are looking for then this is the dive for you! Dive on Protea Banks 7.5km out to sea from Shelly Beach. The reef lies at a depth of between 27 to 40 meters and is about 6km long and 800m wide.

Protea Banks is one of the richest Tuna grounds in the world which explains why it is so strongly frequented by Zambezi (Bull) Sharks that patrol the reef in search of food. Scalloped Hammerheads swim up and down the reef in schools that at times are often hundreds strong. Although generally shy the Great Hammerhead also makes an appearance from time to time. Behind a massive school of Barracudas you will also spot five or six Blacktip Sharks. The Raggedtooth Sharks can also be seen in large numbers during their breeding season in and around the caves on the Northern Pinnacle. And topping the list is the magnificent Tiger Shark.

Protea Banks is ranked as one of the world’s best Shark dives.
