The adrenaline fueled Sardine Run is a spectacular natural phenomenon. The mass migration of sardines along the eastern coast of South Africa, in June & July, can be a truly magnificent event. Port St Johns is one of the prime Sardine Run destinations. Remember though, nature makes no promises, not every Sardine Run has delivered, but for the lucky ones... it can be the experience of a lifetime.
Divers and nature lovers descend on Port St Johns with the hope that they will be one of the 'lucky ones' to have the 'bait ball' experience and to witness the thrill of a full on Sardine Run . Oceanic predators pursue the sardines creating a frenzy of feeding, with divers drawn from every corner of the world in close pursuit.
We were more than happy to host the film crew and divers from 'Bait Ball' at Purple Indigo when it was shot in Port St Johns in 2016. We supplied catered accommodation for crew and cast alike & saw at close hand the thrilling highs of nature at its best.
