Sardine Run South Africa
Welcome to the Sardine Run in South Africa.
We have been offering Sardine Run packages for the past 14-years and the last 11-years we have had an exclusive deal with Cremorne Estate in Port St Johns, rated as one of the best locations for the Sardine Run in South Africa.
We are centrally based in Port St Johns which means we can cover the area from Coffee Bay in the south to Mbotyi in the north.
We have direct access to the Umzimvubu River and the main launch site for the Sardine Run.
Our Sardine Run packages are aimed at divers wanting to get up-close and personal with a HUGE variety of marine-life including dolphin, sharks, whales, game fish, seals, penguins, sardines and many species of marine-birds.
During the Sardine Run, the annual Humpback Whale migration passes Port St Johns, offering some amazing up-close sightings of the Humpback Whales, in the water, close to the boats and when the whales are breaching!
As the colder water moves up the east coast of South Africa, the sardines follow the currents and their food source, bringing a huge diversity of predators with them including many species of whales, shark, dolphin, game fish, sailfish, penguins, seals and more.
Many theories exist about the Sardine Run [water temp. etc] and many people have different ideas on what creates the 'perfect' Sardine Run, however from our experience we have seen great action on days when the conditions are not 'perfect' and quiet days when they are. The bottom line is that the only way to experience the Sardine Run is to enjoy what you see everyday!
Whilst the Sardine Run can never be Guaranteed, one thing that is guaranteed is that you WILL see whales, sharks, 100's of dolphin and marine birds which are on most people's bucket list.
We have a massive number of our customers that return each year which is a great testament to our Sardine Run Adventure!
