Directions to Starting Point

The starting point is infront of Moyo restaurant (at Ushaka Marine World) , with Moyo pier and the beach to your left.
If coming by car: I recommended parking is in Ushaka Parking Area B. It is a safe, secure parking lot and charges an affordable day rate to park. Access is via Browns Road or Camperdown Road.
If coming by rideshare (like Uber) then set destination for Ushaka Marine world, and walk to the beachfront and to start the tour, ensure that Moyo pier is on your left as well as the beach. 29°52'03.0"S 31°02'50.1"E
