Description

Cape Town has a variety of beautiful reefs, but one of it's most incredible is Coral Gardens, living up to its name by the huge variety of brightly-coloured corals decorating the area! This is our reef site for the summer months.

As well as the corals, Coral Gardens also has some unique rock formations, where there is a lot of marine life for macro-lovers to view! Bring along a camera if you have - you will definitely get some awesome shots to show off to your friends!

Expect to see crustaceans, sea stars, sea fans and nudibranchs, as well as some octopus and possibly a shyshark whilst you look around. There is also a small kelp forest where our divers occasionally find a cuttlefish - so be prepared for a dive like no other!

After the dive, enjoy your surface interval at Hout Bay Harbour, which has views over the mountain range of Chapman's Peak - another of Cape Town's infamous landmarks!

During the winter months, we'll either take you to Cowshark Reef, one of Cape Town's most stunning kelp forests, complete with a reef system of pinacles, crevices, and mini cave-like structures. It has all the marine life found at Coral Gardens too!

The Cape Fur Seals are a must-see for divers coming to Cape Town, as they are incredibly playful and interactive in the water, coming right up to our divers to show off their effortless underwater acrobatics. They are a highly inquisitive species, and will often venture close enough to nibble on your fins or snorkels as they try to entice you to play!

The Duiker Island seal colony is Cape Town's largest, and with a maximum depth of 8m can be dived by any experience level. This is where we'll take you for your second dive, and with a 90% chance of seeing them in the water, and the chance of seeing up to 50 in the water at any one time, you will have one of the most incredible dives!

During late November-mid January the female seals give birth to their pups, so during this time our divers are entertained not just by the larger adults, but by the smaller, more clumsy creatures, which start of shy but gradually begin to trust our divers and venture closer and closer each time they meet us! Seal diving is an experience in Cape Town you cannot miss, so definitely to be recorded in your logbooks!

These guys are absolutely great. Diving with seals will be fun with everyone you’ll dive with, but the welcoming faces, the chill yet professional vibes and the friendly and accepting atmosphere are all making that experience something you won’t forget. Totally recommend!

Enjoyed scuba diving with them a lot! They are perfectly organised on land, just a bit messy in the water due to large groups and poor visibility. Would dive with them again though!

Was really excited to try diving with seals, and I must say it was everything I expected it to be. The seals are so playful and fun, our guide Connor was really amazing and let us explore without any rush.

Came with my wife which is a novice diver and a bit nervous because the condition are different then back home. The temperature actually wasn't cold and they took really good care of her, we loved it.

I've dived quite a bit around the world but the seals was definitely one of the most magical experiences!

I had a really amazing experience diving with into the blue team. The guides are very professional and all have a great positive vibe that made the diving all the more special. The office was able to organize a unique 5 day diving trip catered to my interests (wrecks, seals, night, kelp and sharks). Also, they did a great and timely service for my personal BCD at a reasonable price. I hope to come back and dive with them during the sardine run. Thanks again and all the best! 🙂

Fantastic dive experience. The team was excellent with our whole family, they knew the best dive options given our interests and the winds/weather. So impressed they took the time to point out tons of wildlife to and from the sites. Outstanding service, a truly an amazing day ! Thank you!
