Boat Dives and Shore Dives

Guided Shore Dives can be booked and dived 7 days a week

We can arrange boat charter, which can comfortably accommodate 12 divers, 2 divemasters and the skipper. All the boats are equipped with full safety gear, including oxygen. The qualified skippers are medically trained and are also qualified PADI Divemasters.

Guided Shore Dives can be booked and dived 7 days a week Shore dives are easy and stress free. Entering a dive site, off a sandy beach somewhere in Simons Town, False Bay is just beautiful.

We take small & large scuba diving groups on the different shore dives where Nick will introduce you to best of Cape Town Scuba Diving .

There are many amazing dive sites to be seen. For a couple of shore dives it normally takes half a day, with an 8.30am start.

Scuba Dive Permits

In 2007 we saw the introduction of the dive permits as part of the establishment of the Marine Reserve . The Marine Reserve runs roughly from Muizenberg in False Bay to Green point on the Atlantic side.

That means the the whole of the Cape Peninsula is a protected zone. South Africa is way ahead of the rest of the world in declaring so much of its coastline a Marine Reserve.

For us as Scuba Divers this means that you will need a dive permit to dive. You can buy annual permits from any local post office.
