  • About 2 hours

Description

Plettenberg Bay has some exciting deep dives for the adventurous diver! The reef life is plentiful on these dives sites with impressive pinnacles and walls attracting interesting game fish and marine life. Some of the deep sites (e.g. Whale Rock) can only be dived when the conditions are ideal, so the choice of dive site will be decided on the day based on the weather and sea conditions.

DURATION & WHAT TO EXPECT: 2 hours You will be met on arrival by our experienced Dive Guide who will sign you in and assist with fitting your Scuba & Snorkel gear (changing rooms and lockers are available on site). Once every-one has geared up, the group will take a short stroll on the beach to the boat where you be given a briefing by the skipper and dive guide on boat procedures and the dive site, before embarking on a boat ride towards the point of Robberg Nature Reserve. You will then get to jump into the water with your guide for an exhilarating 45 minute dive. On arrival back at Pro Dive our facilities include changing rooms and shower facilities where can freshen up after completing your adventurous deep dive.

The choice of dive site will be decided on the day based on the weather and sea conditions.

February, 2020

I was a first time diver and took my training at the Pro Dive Center in Plettenberg Bay. I had an amazing instructor Cassandra. She was so patient with me and even helped me overcome my water anxiety from previous water related trama. All the staff was very understanding and let me progress at my own pace and always made me feel comfortable and like I had real support to get me through the process. I was able to complete my dive certification and do 4 short dives, 3 shore dives and one boat dive with the sea lions. It truly was an amazing experience and I cant thank Cassandra enough for all her hard work and efforts to make my dream of learning how to scuba dive a success and reality. I highly recommend this dive center for anyone that wants supportive and attentive instructors that make the process comfortable.

Thank you Michelle and team for this fantastic experience, it was truly unbelievable. Special thanks to Daniël, Aldo and Nikky for your patience and teaching us all the skills needed to qualify for Open Water 1. We enjoyed the fun dive with the seals tremendously and will surely be back in 2020 to do more dives with you, perhaps even join you on a tour to the Red Sea! :-)
