Sardine Run 2022 Package

Sardine Run 2022 Package: the incredibly cool phenomenon of nature – The Greatest Shoal on Earth –  unfolds roughly from about June and into September each dry season.  During these months there is always something to see and be a part of here on the KZN South Coast, in South Africa.

We run all sorts of packages throughout the year, but this specialist adventure focuses purely on the sardine run. This is variable with regards to dates as in some sardines even pitch up as early as April. And then some stay until December! It’s this unpredictable nature that makes the sardines elusive to most people. The only way to guarantee your sardine experience is to sign up with one of the formal operators and go out to meet the shoals, by boat. Our network is decades old, we have had sardine spies operating covertly for us all this time (we also operate The Sardine News – since 1987 btw), and we never miss a single sardine!

7 Days of Sardines

Enjoy a 7 day stay with us and experience the following:

  • 4 trips to sea with snacks and drinks
  • 2 trips by road
  • 6 nights luxurious accommodation (sharing – single supplement R1200) at Spillers House.
  • 3 Egyptian meals daily
  • Endless coffee, tea and cooldrinks

Check-in on Day 1 starts at 11 am. Checkout of rooms on Day 7 is at 8 am. But you can hang around and you might even have one more trip to do on that day.

Idyllic Weather Conditions

Occur during the dry, or winter season, here on the south coast of KZN. Gentle offshore breezes brush the swells and the ocean smooth. The water is crystal clear. And warm as toast. Day after day of this bliss is interceded by the odd cold front. But these fronts bring the action and so we just lay low when they come blasting through every now and then.

Timing your adventure with us, during these calms between storms, is a great plan!

Ocean Safaris

The highlight of your life!

Dancing along to the gentle rhythm of the winter the swells and mingling with the ever-cheerful dolphins, whales, turtles, sharks…and sardines!

Road Trips

Sometimes the sardines come right into the shore break and even land on the dry beach as they get hoarded and pushed up against the shore by sharks and dolphins and things.

We have a beach buggy and 4wd good-to-go at all times. And our network is accurate and reliable.

Accommodation

Spillers House and the Umzimkulu Marina are where we are going to accommodate you. Both establishments are right on the water. You will depart for the ocean each morning, from the jetty out the front of your chalet or unit.

Notes: Please bring sun protection, your wetsuit, mask and fins. The trips to sea can be as long as 6 hours so you need to be prepared.

Stay in tune with the sardine shoals this 2022 with The Sardine News. Since 1987, we have been keeping tabs on the slippery little fishies.
