Weekend Dive Report: Tropical Diving in Simon’s Town!

This was one of those weekends that will make you feel sick if you didn’t dive.  Unless you were already sick and couldn’t… Conditions were unbelievable, and not ones that we get very often.  The water was incredibly clear, warm and tropical blue.   Think Mozambique with 18C water.  That kind of tropical. We knew we […]

Dive Report: 9 – 11 November 2012

Our weekend’s diving started on Friday with a great dive at Coral Gardens in Rooi Els.  Conditions were perfect for this dive site which can only really be dived safely when the sea is flat as swells can make entry and exit here a challenge. Our divers from Mossel Bay really enjoyed the dive site […]
