Sea & Kelp Dives

Our first dive is one of our more popular kelp forest sites is at Pyramid Rock where we have a good possibility of encountering the Sevengill Shark, which is also called the Cow Shark. The maximum depth is only 12 metres making it ideal for beginner and junior divers to join. The shallow depths and picturesque environment make this is the ideal environment for photographers aiming to capture these sharks in their natural habitat. The Cape Fur Seal dive is a super fun and interactive dive and one of the signature dives that Cape Town has offered for more than two decades. The seals are very playful and love to show their acrobatic skills to divers. These seals are used to divers and are not shy at all, they will often jump in the water in large numbers to come and investigate and play with divers. We dive at Partridge Point, an exposed haul-out spot for seals. At the amphitheater, a shallow section of the reef, is the best spot to interact with the Seals. The deeper sections of the reef offer beautiful marine life, swim-throughs and large sea fans.
