Frequently Asked Question

We are lucky to enjoy great diving all year round in Sodwana Bay. Warm water and beyond exceptional visibility occur from November through to the end of May. This year we have had insane amounts of Raggied Tooth Shark sightings not just on quarter mile but all over and especially on 7 and 9 mile reefs and as late as Mid March. During our last winter the water temp only dropped to 22 degrees on the shallow reefs. If the visibility drops generally there is plankton in the water and this attracts manta rays. As a spoilt Sodwanian for us poor vis is less than 15 metres.
