 Ragged-tooth Sharks

Ragged-tooth Sharks congregate in large numbers on Aliwal Shoal between July and November. This Shoal is an enormous sandstone reef approximately 5 km offshore. Dive charter boats, averaging 8 metres long launch through the surf from Umkomaas North beach, 30 km south of Durban International Airport. Favourite dive sites to see the "Raggies" are "Raggies Cave" (17 metres) and "Cathedral" (27 metres). Water temperatures during the viewing season range from 18-22C, but water visibility is far more variable, ranging from zero to 30 m, with an average of 10-12 m. Aliwal Shoal can be dived all year and there are two shipwrecks nearby. The "Nebo" and the "Produce".
