Offshore Africa Port St John's is owner run and managed by Rob Nettleton & Debbie Smith.  Both represent a highly qualified team with in excess of 25 years expertise in their field

Aside from being specialists in the Sardine Run, we also offer as follows:-

2 hour Ocean Experience trips

Offshore Photographic trips to Waterfall Bluff (North) and Umgazana / Brazen Head (South)

Scuba diving (when ocean & weather conditions permit)

Shark diving expeditions

River cruise on the mighty Umzimvubu River

PADI diver training is done on request

The above additional activities are on offer outside of the sardine run.  During June - August our main focus is on the sardine run.

We have a full range of scuba & snorkelling equipment available for rental.

Our vessel "Offshore 1" is a 7.2m semi-rigid inflatable powered by 2 x 85hp Yamaha motors, capable of carrying 10 clients + 2 crew. We limit our numbers during sardine run for maximum comfort & space as we are out at sea for a lengthy period each day.



Hi Rob. I will appreciate some information regarding the upcoming sardine run dives. My daughter would love to dive it, but won't be able to do a whole week as advertised. She is a student and I am not sure exactly when we will be able to come down. She is a PADI qualified instructor with approximately 300 dives. Do you offer daily trips as well? If so, what is your daily rates? Does it sometimes happen that you do not find an opportunity at all to dive with the sardines on a day out at sea? Do you guys offer any other reef dives during the sardine run, or is it only sardines for the June / July period? Stupid question from a non diving Dad: How safe is it to dive with the sardines and all the other predators in a feeding frenzy? Your feedback will be appreciated!

Hi there thanks for the comment on this page. Thanks for getting in touch via our website. We have sent you an email in response. Warm regards Rob & Debbie
