Haven’t dived in a while? No stress, book your dive and we’ll hop into the pool for a few minutes and get you re-acquainted by practicing a few skills at no extra charge. Need a refresher but don’t want to dive just yet, no sweat, we can offer this service at a low price of R 500.00. We also offer a range of PADI Courses at Blue Ocean Dive Resort, from Open Water to Instructor. Equipment rentals are also available at our dive centre.
Dives generally take place in the mornings to take advantage of the best sea conditions. Coffee and breakfast is served in our restaurant. We use rubber ducks (zodiacs/ribs) with a maximum of 8 divers, a dive master and skipper on the boat to access the Aliwal Shoal Dive Sites. The ride out to sea is around 7km from the Mkomazi River mouth which takes about 10-15mins. Aliwal Shoal forms the crown of a Marine Protected Area, meaning that no form of fishing is allowed on the dive sites. Divers are not allowed to touch the reef, any of the animals or take anything other than a shark teeth from the sand.
