South Africa is renowned all over the world for its wildlife and unique natural environments – but often when we think of SA’s nature, we think of what’s on land. It might surprise some people to learn that what we’ve got underwater is equally impressive, and if diving is your thing there are a few places that should be on your list to see.
If you’re new to diving and need to cut your teeth, you’re in serious luck! Sandton Scuba currently has a fantastic deal going for Legacy Lifestyle members for an open water diving course that’s normally R4,995, but that’s available for members at R2,995 (valid until end of April 2019). The offer is valid for up to six months after purchase, so check out Sandton Scuba to book your course!
Here are the must-visit diving spots around SA:
Protea Banks (Sardine Run) – KZN
This is a dive spot you could visit any time of year, but to experience the ‘Sardine Run’ you’ll need to be there during June and July. During this time of year, huge schools of sardines gather as they come from the Cape to Natal, and divers can mingle with the trekking schools cageless and able to enjoy the full experience.
Uniforms (Sodwana Bay) – KZN
The entire Sodwana bay area is a treasure-trove of aquatic attractions, but the Uniform dive area is a particularly appealing spot. It has a lot of wildlife to keep an eye out for – from turtles to Tiger Angelfish – and it also offers a diverse range of coral, too.
Shark Alley – KZN
As the name would suggest, this dive is probably better suited to more experienced divers or serious adrenalin junkies. This site consists of a sandstone reef that’s over 80,000 years old, and during the second half of the year, is host to a bunch of Ragged Tooth sharks, and throughout the summer, even has Tiger and Hammerhead Sharks passing through.
So – if you’re ready to take the plunge hit up Sandton Scuba and get your diving course deal so you can start exploring the best of South Africa’s diving destinations!
