History of Cage Diving in KZN:
Sharklife developed the idea of cage diving in Kwa-Zulu Natal in 2008 in line with one of the organisations main aims;
To increase marine tourism and transform shark populations into a sustainable living resource by developing educational ocean experiences for all South African’s. see more
Scuba diving with sharks had been conducted in Kwa-Zulu Natal for a number of years prior, but because of the training constraints associated with scuba a relatively small number of the public participated. With a vision to make the experience more accessible to non-divers, Sharklife promoted the idea to local dive operators. It was John Miller from Cage Diving KZN who saw the value in the experience and invested a great deal into the idea.
Many years on, a thriving ecotourism activity reliant on healthy shark populations continues to promote and support shark conservation. Sharklife would like to thank all its members and partners who have enabled the organization to realize its aims.
