Itinerary for the Sardine Run Ocean Safari
Day 1: Arrive at King Shaka International airport in Durban. At 12h00 we transfer from the airport on a scenic road transfer to Port St Johns. It is a 5 to 6 hour road transfer which we complete during the day as travelling at night is not advisable due to stray animals, pedestrians etc on the road. On arrival in Port St Johns we will have a full briefing.
Day 2 to 6: Full days at sea (Weather permitting). Breakfast is from 06h00. We transfer to the dive boat for a 7h30 launch for the days sardine activity. We spend the day searching for sardines. Depending on the Sardine activity, we return to Post St Johns and the guest house at about 15h00. The rest of the afternoon is free and dinner is served at 19h00. On the days that we can not go to sea, due to bad weather, we will arrange for land-based activities. Accommodation is on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis. A packed lunch and refreshments is included for the sea days on the boat.
Day 7: After an early breakfast you depart for the 5 to 6 hour road transfer to King Shaka International airport in Durban.
