Sardine Run Package Summary

 

A typical day is as follows:

 

A buffet breakfast will take place at around 6:30am, after which they will get into their wetsuits.  We will then launch the boat and look for sardine action according to the daily sardine reports and updates that we receive.  We will spend the day out at sea looking for and interacting with sardine bait balls and/ or other marine life.  The clients can also expect to see Dolphins, Cape Gannets, whales and various sharks. 

The length of a sea day is determined by the action that we get and weather/ sea conditions.  After the sea day we will come back to land and then de-kit, have a shower, relax and then meet for dinner and drinks and then head off to bed.

For the duration of the Sardine Run we are based at the Spotted Grunter Resort in Port St Johns. 

 

 

 

Sardine Run Packages

Join for an amazing fun filled trip on the Sardine Run. Our staff has over 17 years’ experience on the Sardine Run, so we know our stuff!

This is an annual event that takes place along the ‘Transkei Wild Coast’, coast line. During the months of June & July, cold currents move inshore allowing the sardines to move along the east coast of South Africa, basically a range extension in the cold nutrient rich water. Apart from the sardine bait balls that one can see, there is also the annual migration of the Humpback whales that are heading north to give birth. There are super pods of Common dolphin, thousands of Cape gannets, bottle nose dolphins and sharks galore.

This event known by BBC as ‘The greatest shoal on earth’ is an adventure for everyone, whether you are a diver or a non-diver. All nature lovers and adrenalin enthusiasts will thoroughly enjoy this amazing spectacle of nature.

We are based in the scenic town of Port St Johns, where the boats launch out of the Umzimvubu River. We have been doing the Sardine Run on this coast line for over 10 years, therefore our skippers and dive guides have an extensive knowledge and experience of where to find the best ‘action’ for our clients.

Non-diver/ non-boat rider (sharing) 

If you have a partner that would like to join you that does not want to go to sea and just relax on land whilst you are on the water hunting the action then we also have a package for this
