Aliwal Shoal Dive Center
The onsite Dive Center is located toward the front of the property. Our Dive Center and boats have been designed and fully equipped to accommodate both technical divers (re-breather and twins) and open circuit divers. Our dive team will ensure all of your diving requirements are catered for.
We pride ourselves on our friendly professional service. Long time leaders in the dive industry we cater for divers from entry level to the more advanced technical diver. Our full time professional Dive Masters will guide your dives on Aliwal Shoal, from Shark dives, deep reefs, wrecks and the beautiful reef itself.
Dives generally take place in the morning to take advantage of the sea conditions. After a quick stroll through the garden to the Dive Center you will be driven to the beach for a boat and dive briefing and then an exciting surf launch. After your dive you will be driven back to Aghulas House where you can shower off and enjoy a hearty breakfast and discuss the mornings dive with your Dive Master. Our dive crew will ensure your dive gear is washed and ready for your next day’s diving.
