The Sardine Run occurs between late May and July along the East coast of South Africa when millions of sardines migrate up the East coast of South Africa from the Cape. Their sheer numbers create a feeding frenzy along the coastline in what is one of the largest marine events in the world. This has been dubbed "The Greatest Shoal On Earth" by the Kwazulu-Natal Tourist Board.

The large reef system of Aliwal Shoal is approximately 1.6kms long and 700ms wide offering a variety of different dives. The Shoal is located 4kms off-shore and 7kms from the Umkomaas River launch site and travel time to the Shoal is approximately 15 - 20mins.
