Dive the annual Sardine Run

Every year from around February to August the South African Coast is enriched with life. This is as a result of the annual migration of sardines. Starting at the west coast of South Africa in around February and moving along to the east coast of South Africa through the months until around august when they disappear.

Sardine Run South Africa has been offering all-inclusive Sardine Run Packages since 2003. Experience this annual phenomenon of millions of sardines which takes place off the coast of Port St Johns in the Eastern Cape of South Africa whilst being in the presence of hundreds of dolphins, sharks, diving birds, whales, game fish and seals. During your Sardine Run trip you will also get to dive one of the top-10 dive sites in the world, the Aliwal Shoal in KwaZulu-Natal. You’ll feel like you’re in a David Attenborough production or filming for Natgeo or the BBC Earth series.

Our Sardine Run South Africa packages include ALL Transport and Transfers, Accommodation, Scuba Diving, Cylinders, Air-fills, Weights and Diver Permits and meals as required for your Sardine Run package.

From the moment you arrive, Sardine Run South Africa and Blue Ocean Dive Resort will be your hosts, tour guides and dive guides for the duration of your trip with us.
