Diving in Cape Town

Scuba diving… An adventure sport that opens your eyes to a world of underwater beauty and excitement. And scuba diving in Cape Town, at the southern tip of Africa, offers a feast for the senses.

The waters around the Cape Peninsula are extraordinarily rich with marine life found nowhere else in the world. The clean, cold waters of the Atlantic and the warmer waters of False Bay are host to countless fish species, giant sting rays, beautiful sea plants, and extremely diverse invertebrate life such as nudibranchs (colourful sea slugs), molluscs and brightly coloured sea anemones. Scuba diving in Cape Town is colourful and always exciting.

There are many wrecks to explore, easily accessible either on a dive boat or from the shore. Some of these were deliberately sunk as artificial reefs, and others fell victim to winter storms and now have a permanent home on our coastline. There are also rocky reefs and mysterious kelp forests that hide a multitude of fascinating inhabitants. You can even do dives with seals or with remarkable sevengill cowsharks if you want to – the options are endless.

Have you always wanted to learn to dive but lacked the time? We can arrange a course around your schedule. Both SDI and PADI make it possible for you to do the theory component of your course online through their eLearning systems – contact me to find out how. This way you can start your course even if you’re in a different country!

Has scuba diving always appealed to you, but you’re not sure if you can handle it? I am a highly qualified diving instructor with time and patience to spare. If you’re not sure, we can start with a one day Discover Scuba Diving course… or we can go ahead with an Open Water course, at your own pace, making sure you feel comfortable and confident all the way.

Are you a qualified diver who just never seems to find the time and motivation to go diving? Contact me to get regular updates on night dives, boat dives and shore dives in the False Bay, Cape Town area, or get in touch to arrange an expedition around your schedule.

Are you visiting Cape Town? Be sure to add scuba diving to your to- do list, as the Cape has a wealth of exciting and colourful dive sites, and some of the best wrecks in the world to explore.
