Ushaka Marine World offers adventurers three unforgettable experiences.
The Snorkel Experience – See myriads of silvery fish flash only millimetres from your face as you float lazily around the snorkel lagoon, or dive through the Phantom Ship where you will be able to spot the long-lost treasures from the cargo ship wreck, including a Willy’s Jeep believed to be from World War II, but beware; you may come face to face with a shark!
Bring only your swimwear and a towel, as we provide you with a buoyancy vest, a mask and snorkel.
Open Mondays and Tuesdays out of season, and daily in season. Sessions are conducted every hour on the hour.
The Xpanda Shark Dive – With nothing but the Xpanda cage between you and the fierce Ragged Tooth shark, you can test your courage by enduring a close encounter with Ragged Tooth sharks circling your cage, and enjoy seeing Brindle bass at close range.
The Oceanwalker Experience – uShaka Marine World is the only place in South Africa where you can walk among the sea’s beautiful creatures using an innovative device such as the Oceanwalker. The Open Ocean Tank has magnificent marine life such as rays, sand sharks, tuna and pompano, and to think you do not need a diving qualification to enjoy a walk inside uShaka Marine World’s largest exhibit!
