Cape Town - Experience another world without having to leave Earth.

Take a deep breath and dive right into these amazing dive spots around our corner of Africa. You can brave the cold waters to explore kelp forests, or head to the east for warmer waters filled with whale sharks and sea turtles.

You don't even need to to be on the coast for a diving adventure - lakes and rivers can hit deep depths where you can find sunken relics from the past or even see how a crocodile swims underwater!

South Africa boasts miles of coastline peppered with great diving spots, and it's only a hop, skip and a swim to our neighbours to explore more of the diving world.
