Scubaversity is mixing it up once again!! This NEW Aliwal trip, we will be staying at the Cutty Sark Hotel right on Scottburgh beach! And right in front of the Scottburgh Launch site! AND all their rooms have sea views!
With the dive centre sharing the premises, we won’t have to budge at all. Eat sleep and dive all in one place. Diving with ScubaXcursion we simply park the cars, kit up in the comfort of the dive centre and stroll down to one of the most popular sheltered bathing beaches in South Africa, perfectly positioned right in the middle of the Aliwal Shoal Marine Protected Area, rated as one of the top ten dive sites in the world.
Once on back line you have the option of heading North to any of Aliwal Shoals amazing reefs or Wrecks, or you can go South to explore the untouched Southern reefs. Scottburgh town itself offers a range of restaurants you can easily walk to. This is really the perfect LONG WEEKEND family getaway.
We’ll be running a couple of courses during this trip:
There is also the Baited Shark Diving where divers can observe Tiger Sharks and other Sharks in their natural environment while the Sharks are lured to a closed steel container containing sardines and chum!!!
There are two wrecks near the reef that are prime sites for divers. The Nebo which sank in 1884 and the Norwegian bulk carrier called the "Produce" which sank in 1974. Other than that, The Aliwal Shoal is a rocky reef which is the remains of an ancient fossilized sand dune which is approximately 5 km off the coast. The reef plays host to many kinds of hard and soft corals and an estimated 1200 species of tropical and subtropical fish.
