Dive Report: 4 February 2018 – Chalk and Cheese

Saturday morning saw us launching from Harbour Island in slightly windy conditions but by the time we’d kitted up and were ready for our dive at Cow and Calf, the wind had dropped. The water was clear and cool and after the initial brain-freeze moment whilst descending to the sea floor below us, we soon […]

Following a week of strong South Easterlies, we launched on Saturday morning and sped over to Stone Dog and Cow and Calf where we had two fantastic dives.  The water was clear and pretty cold – some divers even recorded 9C on their dive computers, but we all agreed the average was in the region […]

Creature Feature:  The Grumpy Rocksucker

Creature Feature: The Grumpy Rocksucker

Well-camouflaged and always grumpy looking, the Rocksucker is one of our favourite fish. They are such characters!  I think it’s because they are so ugly, they’re cute (and, of course, because they remind me of Bella)… The Rocksucker (Chorisochismus dentex) is the largest of its family and we find them at most of our shallower dive sites […]

Dropping on the southern region of Steenbras Deep, the descent down the shot line was […]

Dive Report: 11.11.2017

Following a week of very strong south easters, we had been looking forward to diving in the crystal clear waters that had been beckoning us all week.  Sadly, this was not to be as the wind changed direction on Friday and visibility dropped, becoming patchy by Saturday morning. But so is diving and so is […]

How to get to the Gordon’s Bay Boat Angling Club

When we launch in Gordon’s Bay, we launch at the slipway next to the Gordon’s Bay Boat Angling Club in Harbour Island, Gordon’s Bay. Please note that this is not at the “Old Harbour”, but at the waterfront in Gordon’s Bay where you will find the big Villa Via (soon to be renamed) hotel, Antonio’s […]

When is the best time to dive in Gordon’s Bay?

When is the best time to dive in Gordon’s Bay?

The best time to dive in Gordon’s Bay is between October and April/May. Gordon’s Bay is located on the eastern side of False Bay and during these months, the south easterly wind blows offshore, causing the surface water to move northwards along the coast, away from Gordon’s Bay.  This movement is then compensated by an upwelling […]
