Each year during May, June and July, vast shoals of sardines leave their cold-water home in South Africa’s temperate seas and travel north into the sub-tropical seas of South Africa’s Wild Coast. The shoals offer a bountiful feast to a host of predators including seabirds, game fish, marine mammals and sharks. It is one of nature’s greatest spectacles. This is the Sardine Run.
Experience marine wildlife watching at its most spectacular! It is an opportunity to be part of something that many of the world’s top marine biologists, wildlife photographers and filmmakers consider the most intense wildlife event in the world. You can view from the boat, snorkel on the ocean surface or do the Run with scuba gear.
