After a bit of a bumpy ride out to the south of the Aliwal Shoal, the water is chummed to create an odour corridor designed to bring a variety of sharks out to play. The dive usually lasts a minimum of an hour and adventurers usually see between two and six Tiger Sharks in the summer months as well as Oceanic Blacktip Sharks, Dusky Sharks and sometimes other species including Bull Sharks.
