Try scuba diving.
This is for the sceptic who wants to test the water, literally. It is just a matter of getting your head underwater and taking a few breaths to see for yourself why we dive and is ideal to clear the head. Our instructors are very patient, so if you ever wanted to try scuba but don’t feel ready for the full plunge this is for you. However be warned…this is where it starts with a lot of divers and can be life changeably addictive.
Boat diving charters.
Climb aboard our rib to explore the reefs beyond the famous heads. We dive reefs ranging in depth of 8- 40 meters. Please make sure of your qualification when booking as launches are often based on different levels of qualifications due to depth. Also pricing differs as some reefs are further out and will cost are calculated accordingly. Minimum numbers apply for boat to launch.
Shore entry guided dives.
We are very fortunate to have world class shore entry dives. Our flagship dive is the “Paquita” wreck that sank in the heads in 1803. It supports a rich history and marine eco system. This is a site that keeps you interested for many dives.
We also do drift dives as the heads channel provides for some really good fast fun underwater.
The seahorse dive is also shore entry and a must for anybody interested in these cryptic creatures.
All our night dives are shore entry and differs from location depending on conditions. Please book in advance as our shore entry dive times are all according to tide tables.
We offer guided snorkelling trips in the area. Please be advised that it is tide and condition dependant. Training can also be provided prior to taking a snorkelling trip.
We have our own compressor and filling can be done from base.
That old regulator squeaking a bit? Has your gear been serviced during the last year? The main reason for aborting dives is equipment failure. We have a fully stocked work shop and qualified technicians to service your gear.
We do and arrange dive travel local and international as we believe one of the reasons to dive is to explore new and wonderful places.
