PROTEA BANKS: PROTEA BANKS offers an exceptionally exciting specialty SHARK dive. Situated 7,5km off Shelly Beach, on the KwaZulu Natal's South Coast, PROTEA BANKS allows ADVANCED divers the opportunity to experience a shark dive that is completely unique. During the summer months the Bull Shark (Zambezi) makes PROTEA BANKS its home. Hammerheads are often seen overhead and not just one or two, we are talking hundreds .... yes hundreds. Guitar Sharks, Dusky and Oceanic Blacktip sharks frequent this reef with a select few getting the privilege of seeing the elusive Tiger Shark. In the winter months the Ragged-Tooth Sharks congregate on PROTEA BANKS to mate. Aside from sharks PROTEA BANKS, also boasts a vast number of gamefish such as Barracuda, Snappers, Yellowtail, Kingfish and Potato Bass to name but a few. A variety of Rays are also a common sighting. PROTEA BANKS - SOUTHERN PINNACLES: Depth 26 to 40m Dived mainly in the summer months, this site is home to the notorious Bull Shark (Zambezi) which brings a great deal of notoriety to this world-renowned dive location. Other sharks frequenting PROTEA BANKS include Hammerheads, Oceanic Blacktips, Dusky, Guitar Sharks and a variety of rays. For a fortunate few there is even the possibility of sighting the Tiger Shark. PROTEA BANKS - NORTHERN PINNACLES: Depth 28 to 38m This site, normally dived in winter months during the Ragged-Tooth mating season, allows divers to view "Raggies" in close proximity on their annual migration route. The area consists of two cave systems in which the "Raggies" congregate. At times it is impossible to see the mouth of the caves as it is completely obscured by masses of sharks! Although PROTEA BANKS is our home we can tailor make dive safaris to explore some of the other unique and exciting dives sites our coastline has to offer, from the Aliwal Shoal in Umkomaas, to wreck diving in Durban, stunning coral reefs in Sodwana, and then of course there is still the exciting and remote diving of Mozambique. Should Great white shark cage diving or Blue shark and Mako shark blue water diving be your thing, we can arrange this once in a lifetime experience for you. And of course we can't forget the annual 'Sardine Run' which takes place during June/July, and is unique to our coastline. So, whether you are with us for a day or a fortnight our team can tailor a package to satisfy your dive safari needs. Come on down and get wet with Aqua Planet Dive Centre and Charter!!!
