Ocean Adventure Sports

South Africa is famous for its extensive coast line along 2 oceans; The Indian Ocean on the East coast and the Atlantic Ocean on the West coast. There is a big misconception that both Oceans meet at Cape Point on the Peninsula of the Western Cape, but actually they merge at Cape Agulhas which is the Southernmost tip of the continent ‘Africa’.

This confluence of warm water of the Indian Ocean and the cold water of the Atlantic Ocean provides a huge marine biodiversity. On the east coast near Durban, a natural event takes place every year called the ‘Sardine Run’. Truly a once in a life time expedition as it brings all marine life together including whales, sharks, dolphins and seals, to get their part of the sardine buffet. The borderline of the two oceans also meet several kilometres off shore from Cape Point. This is a perfect opportunity to take you on a daytrip from Cape Town to dive with Blue Sharks and other incredible marine species sightings.

The ocean provides a swell (SSE – WSW) whole year round, but wintertime (June – August) provides a bigger swell as low-pressure systems are stronger and occur more often. These low-pressure systems bring rain and North Westerly winds at the West coast and occur in cycles of a couple of days which is followed again by sunny days. The East coast climate is generally very stable although subtropical rain mainly occurs during summer. In summer, the western cape is famous for the South-Eastern wind which are always sunny days. South Africans call it the Cape Doctor and it forms a cloud (or sheet) on Table Mountain. The SE attracts a lot of wind related water sports enthusiasts.

South Africa is home of 6 Hope Spots, which are legally protected areas to boost ocean conservation and ocean rehabilitation. With the rough coastline of cliffs, rock formations and beaches, South Africa provides an enormous variety of conditions for every kind of water sport lover. If it the swell or wind you chase, the interaction with some of the oldest species on the planet or if you enjoy the wind and “waveless” days to (free)dive into the deep blue, our experts know where to take you. Without a doubt, every day is an adventure whether you are in the Western Cape, Eastern Cape or KwaZulu-Natal.
