Umkomaas is an ideal destination for divers. It is home to the Aliwal Shoal which has become synonymous with shark diving opportunities. This reef attracts over 1200 species of fish, sharks, whales, rays and turtles. This is not its only appeal as it is an incredible location for wreck diving. You’ll never be bored visiting this ideal diving spot. So, of course, we’ll be taking a trip there. Book out your calendar from 19 April 2019 to 22 April 2019 for some of the most fun you can have with a wetsuit on. Working with our friends at Blue Ocean we’ll take you on four dives and an optional baited shark dive. Baited shark dives are done without cages so you can experience the same freedom these misunderstood predators experience in the waters off the Umkomaas coast. This is an experience you would not want to miss. If you’re going with shark diving in mind you might want to consider participating in the AWARE Shark Conservation Specialty course.
Geko Divers will be offering an AWARE Shark Conservation Specialty course for participants on the Umkomaas trip. This specialty course is an ideal way to further your PADI education if you love sharks, fear them or are simply intrigued by the information available about these giants of the deep. You will discover the value of sharks to marine ecosystems and economies. You’ll learn more about the causes of declining shark populations and knowledgeable about becoming a passionate shark defender. Your expanded knowledge about sharks can help dispel misconceptions and protect them.
