Rated amongst the top 10 dive sites in the world, Sodwana Bay truly is a diver's dream....
Sodwana boasts some of the most southern coral reefs in the world and as such offers incredible diversity - although it is only a fraction of the size of the Great Barrier Reef, it is estimated to contain more than two thirds the amount of fish species. The 50km long reef complex is estimated to be more than 400 years old.
Whether you are diving or snorkelling there is so much to see -more than 95 species of hard and soft corals, 1200 species of fish, turtles, manta rays and much more. An encounter with one of the oceans big creatures on your drive to the further dive sites is also very likely - frolick with the playful bottlenose dolphins, swim with an incredible whaleshark and observe the mighty humpback whales as they migrate past Sodwana Bay.
