Port St. Johns
Port St Johns is a small coastal town situated on the Wild Coast, a coastline of about 250km boasting spectacular natural scenery. The town lies alongside the mouth of the Mzimvubu River, which flows through an impressive gorge into the Indian Ocean.
It is from this laid-back, vibrant town that we congregate for the annual sardine run. An area that has been known for the Sardine Run for many years and attracts divers from around the globe.
