    Try Mark Addison here - http://www.bluewilderness.co.za/ . He is considered to be one of the best around . I see he has the sardine run listed on his site.

    I'm going to dive with him in May for Tigers and Zambezis as part of my Mozambique / Sodwana / Protea banks dive trip .

    Could you PM me your e-mail and cell no ? I'm looking for recommendations for reasonable self catering accomodation down at Umkomaas or vicinity.

    Blue Wilderness caters more to film crews and such for the sardine run. Their "recreational" boat is often overstuffed and given poor priority. I used them before and will never do so again for the run. For tigers they are great as Mark is the pioneer of the tiger dives in aliwal.
    Walter at African Watersports is Mark's cousin and they were partners running the sardine trips before they split. Walter runs a better recreational boat since that's all he does.

    I've cancelled my South Africa trip in June because my buddy has got other commitments. But still, I'd like to thanks Walter from africanwatersports. He was really fast in responding to all my emails and queries. When I told him that we are not able to make the trip, he was very cool about this and send me a email saying
    hi JOVIN
    WELL YOU CAN'T WIN THEM ALL HEY ? NEXT TIME MAYBE .
    ALL THE BEST
    WALTER

    Walter, thank you so much for all your help and I wouldn't hestitate to recommend your service :) I'm also looking forward to diving with you some time soon.

    Happy bubbles,
    Jovin-

    Hi Mike, don't worry but I'll have few Asia short trips planned for this year :D

    The water temperature will be around 18-20 deg celsius. You'll need at least a 5mm.
