Aliwal Shoal dive information & pricing.
Launch From the Umkomaas river mouth or a beach launch if the river is running low. The Aliwal Shoal is approximately 5kms 3.5 miles approx from the Umkomaas river. The dive ribs launch through the Indian Ocean surf which can be a bit hair raising at times, but all part of the fun.
NEBO The Nebo struck the Aliwal Shoal in 1884 in fairly calm weather and went down with it's cargo of railway material with no lives lost. The Nebo lies in about 30 metres of water and is still fairly intact. The wreck attracts lots of reef and pelagic (game) fish.
PRODUCE The wreck of the Norwegian tanker "The Produce" lies at the bottom of the Indian Ocean after striking "The Pinnacles" in 1974. Like the Nebo no lives were lost in this accident. Resting in 30 metres of water the wreck is home to Brindle Bass, King fish. Salmon (Kob), etc. As well a range of tropical reef fish.
RAGGIES CAVE Is where the "Raggies" (Ragged Tooth Shark) all meet up to spend their winter holidays. (South African winter June, July). Although fierce looking they can be approached with caution. Average depth 12m maximum depth 19m. Good chance of finding sharks teeth here!!!
The Pinnacles Has a depth is 10 - 15 metres. It is best dived when there is little or no current. Many caves, overhangs and gullies can be explored on this reef, and there are usually large shoals of fish resident.
Cathedral This is a spectacular part of the reef and is where rays, moray eels and ragged tooth sharks congregate, depths range from 10m to 28m.
