Wreck And Reef Package

Wreck Diving

The Cape waters are littered with thousands of shipwrecks, recent and ancient, on the shore and in deep water. Common wreck dives are the Maori, the Astor, the Katzu Maru, the Smitswinkel Bay wrecks (of which there are five) and the SAS Pietermaritzburg.

The commonly dived wrecks vary in depth and can range between 12m to 40m. We can take you to several wrecks and will pick them depending on your dive qualification.

Reef Diving

Diving in and around Cape Town offers one a huge range of possibilities: from majestic kelp forests to cold-water coral gardens and deep reefs.

The Western Cape is the smallest complete floral kingdom in the world and this diversity is mirrored underwater with the unique positioning of the peninsula at the junction of two major ocean currents. False Bay has been recognised as a biodiversity hotspot due to the numbers of endemic animals living in these waters.

The shallower reefs are very colourful and are dominated by kelp forests with an understorey of delicate marine organisms. The deeper reefs host sea whips and fans, an abundance of reef fish, small sharks, octopuses, nudibranchs, crabs, sponges and cold water corals.

Many of our reefs allow you to do really good multi-level dives, with depths between 30m and 10m.
