Did you know that the average lifespan of a shark is about 35 years, although some species live up to 100 years? And, that the shark grows all its life? The evolution of the modern shark began 100 million years ago, and most of today's shark species inhabited the Earth 65 million years ago. South Africa is, due to the geographic position, a place on Earth, where you can see more than ten different species of sharks, predominantly so-called requiem sharks. These are shark species that live in warmer waters, give birth to live young, and are migratory.

The Aliwal Shoal on the eastern coast of South Africa is home to a wide variety of shark species. Oceanic Blacktip sharks, Bull sharks, Dusky sharks, and Tiger sharks are present all year round. Ragged-tooth, also named Sand tiger, sharks and Hammerhead sharks swim the waters at certain times of the year. Here you'll be able to dive or snorkel amongst them without a cage!
