The event takes place off the KwaZulu/Natal south coast of Africa every June & July. Well ..... ALMOST every June & July ! Please note that there are always risks that can mean you get "stood-up". The show doesn't always go on ! It seems to be a water temperature issue. If the water is too warm, the sardines just don't budge from where they are.
However, if you're up to the challenge & ready to weigh possible disappointment against probably super thrills, I say take a chance ! Sign up for this unparalleled underwater wonder which attracts divers and photographers from around the world on a yearly basis. You can read more about the event at the bottom of the page.
We use several operators in South Africa – Tim Ray from Dive the Big Five and Nic de Gersigny from Seal Expeditions, also the very popular Scuba Addicts and a few select others. We simply recommend that you choose carefully if you're booking on your own. Not all of the operators have the same safety standards. The operator we work with are tried and tested and we can highly recommend their programs.
Also, world wildlife photographer, Amos Nachoum, often adds photo expeditions to South Africa in his extraordinary repertoire of trips. He doesn't do Sardine Run every year, but when he does, he offers one of the high-class options.
There's plenty of other excitement also when diving in South Africa where you will find ample action with the great predators of the oceans!
