Diving holiday specialist, Regaldive, is excited to announce the release of tickets to the 2015 sardine run expeditions in South Africa. With tickets to the 2014 expeditions having sold quicker than ever, divers are advised to get in there quick to guarantee their place for next year.
Widely regarded as one of the greatest marine events on the planet, the sardine run takes on many phases and sees vast shoals of silver sardines moving over a hundred kilometres up the east coast of Africa. Accompanied by their food source, plankton, the sardines are stalked by predators for the duration of their journey including over 20,000 dolphins, orcas and bryde’s whales; thousands of copper sharks; hundreds of seals; tens of thousands of gannets and storm petrels, and hundreds of sea birds. Humpback and southern right whales can also be seen following the same route as they migrate from their summer feeding grounds to the southern and eastern coast of Africa.
Regaldive’s nine day expeditions allow divers the unique opportunity to experience first-hand the wonders of the sardine run. Guests will travel in small groups and spend seven days diving, swimming and snorkelling in close proximity to the marine life. They will also have the opportunity to partake in optional above-the-water activities including a microlight flight over the Wild Coast, horse riding and trekking.
The 2015 sardine run expeditions will take place during 16th June and 24th July 2015, with tickets costing from £2,577 per person for an eight night trip. Longer durations are also available. The price includes full board accommodation at Mbotyi River Lodge, transfers, diving, an expert guide, some dive equipment (cylinders, airfills and weight belt), full air support and a microlight flight, afternoon activities and a donation to a local conservation group.
