WELCOME TO THE ONLY ORGANISATION OF ITS KIND IN THE WORLDDownload surf report

The KwaZulu-Natal Sharks Board Maritime Centre of Excellence (KZNSB) is mandated to be a global leader in bather protection against shark while minimising environmental impact, thus promoting tourism. The KwaZulu-Natal coastline is the only coastline with 37 beaches equipped with bather safety gear owned and maintained by the KwaZulu-Natal Sharks Board Maritime Centre of Excellence in South Africa.

The KZNSB also conducts research into the biology of sharks and other animals caught in shark safety gear. Tourists and scholars are educated with dynamic audio-visual shows and shark dissections. In-depth research, that has already produced vital insight, is conducted into shark behaviour, feeding and breeding.

The public can enjoy early boat trips out to sea to observe staff at work. Here one will witness the checking of shark safety gear as well as stand an excellent chance of spotting a variety of marine life.

KZN Sharks Board wishes to announce that on Monday, 19th December 2016, there will be dissection shows at 09:00am (CAT) and 02:00pm (CAT).

The first Sunday show for January 2017 will be scheduled for Sunday 08th of January 2017. This is due to the 01st January 2017, being a public holiday.
