Scuba diving in South Africa


This truly beautiful country at the southern tip of dark and mysterious Africa offers diving and wildlife experiences beyond your wildest dreams...

Whether you want to dive sharks and wrecks on rugged wild coasts, or simply relax with whales and dolphins and enjoy pristine coral reefs and abundant wildlife, this should definately be your next diving destination.

Scuba diving in South Africa is a fast growing sport and of a high standard. All major organization's qualifications are recognized and good quality dive gear is easily hired. Foreign divers are welcomed with typical South African hospitality and are without exception made to feel at home.

The coastline ranges from about 35S to 27S, and that means that one has a choice of diving in the cold waters of the Cape Province, the warmer waters of KwaZulu Natal or the tropical waters of Mozambique.

The Cape Province is mostly good for wrecks, white sharks, kelp and colourful sponges. KwaZulu Natal is primarily for mantas, rays, sharks, wrecks, whales, dolphins, turtles, reef and pelagic fish, hard and soft coral reefs, and Mozambique for whale sharks, mantas, turtles, dugongs and tropical hard coral reefs.

Most of the diving are done from semi-rigid boats, with a few hard boat and shore entries. The only "liveaboards" are found in Mozambique and are not of international standard and size.
