Dive Sites are:

COOPERS LIGHTHOUSE WRECK
Maximum Depth: 32m

Lying about 4km off Treasure Beach on the Bluff is one of the best wreck dives off the KZN coast. She lies upright in 24 - 32m of water and is home to the most prolific amount of marine life. Confusion surrounds the actual identity of the wreck and it has therefore been named after the nearby Coopers Lighthouse.

THE FONTAO WRECK
Maximum Depth: 27m

THE FONTAO lies in 27m of water, 3km directly off Umhlanga's lighthouse. This vessel started life as a deep ocean trawler. It was recommissioned by ORI (Oceanographic Research Institute) and sunk as an artificial reef in 1977. The wreck is now teeming with a full complement of tropical reef fish and also hosts schools of bait fish, which attract larger predators.

Species sighted in this area

Whales, Dolphins, Turtles, Rays, Whale Shark, Ragged Tooth Shard and Zambezi Shark
