Experience an underwater paradise

2017-12-15 06:00

The famous French explorer Jacques Cousteau wrote in his book, ‘Life and Death in a Coral Sea’: “The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever”. We discovered this to be completely true when we went scuba diving with ScubaXcursion in Durban.

The Aliwal Shoal is something that must be experienced to be believed. The rocky reef, which is the remains of an ancient sand dune about 5km off the Durban shores, is inhabited by different hard and soft corals, as well as a variety of tropical and subtropical fish species. There are also two shipwrecks near the reef – the MV Produce, the Norwegian bulk carrier which sank in 1974, and SS Nebo which sank in 1884.

From the helpful and friendly staff to the beauty that we saw when we embarked on the dive, the experience was unparalleled and worth a try for all Durbanites, and passers-through. Situated at Cutty Sark Hotel in Scottburgh, ScubaXcursion promises new and exciting adventures on every dive, and you can also bring your kids along because they offer child friendly dives too. They also provide shuttle services that pick customers up from Durban hotels and King Shaka International Airport.
