Hout Bay on Tuesday

Newsletter: Two bays

Hi divers

We had an early start last weekend and launched from Simon’s Town at 7.30 am to get in and out before the wind arrived. Conditions were good and we dived the Atlantis area.

On Tuesday we launched from Hout Bay and despite a few days of south easterly winds the visibility was around 6 metres, but the swell created quite considerable surge. Both dives were around deep Tafelberg Reef and the surge could be felt below 30 metres.

The forecast for the weekend looks a little bleak. Much wind and much swell means slim odds of finding nice diving conditions anywhere. However should conditions change we will keep you posted by text and Whatsapp, and go diving.


Don’t forget Diversnight, happening at Long Beach on Saturday 7th November. Read more about this venerable Norwegian night diving tradition on the Diversnight website. (We like the cake aspect.) There’s a facebook event for your diary here!
