While you’re in Umhlanga, find out everything there is to know about sharks from KwaZulu-Natal Sharks Board. Take a tour of their shark exhibits, which ends with a shark dissection. Not for the squeamish, but school groups watch it all the time.
You can also arrange a boat ride to watch the experts service the city’s shark nets, though you’re more likely to see dolphins than great whites. That trip leaves from Wilson’s Wharf on weekdays at 6:30am, and you must book in advance.
