Daily Guided Shore Dives package with full equipment, two guided shore dives, lunch and transport from dive centre to dive sites.

Cape Town is quite unique in that there is a huge variety of shore entries available on both sides of the peninsula. False Bay has beautiful, thick kelp forests which creates an unusual environment for exploring, as well as a refuge for small animals and schools of reef fish. One will encounter numerous nudibranchs (over 80 species have been documented), crustaceans and lobsters, anemones, feather-stars, brittle-stars, sponges, sea-fans, ocopuses and cuttlefish, as well as many species of interesting fish, such as the Klipvis of which there are 34 known species in False Bay alone.

False Bay falls into a Marine Protected Area where no marine organisms may be removed or disturbed.

Shore diving lends itself to small groups, longer dives, exploration and a more intimate diving experience. Photographers often prefer shallow shore dives due to better light available and shore diving also suits less experienced and confident divers.

Our shore diving package includes all diving equipment, transfers from the dive centre to the dive site and back, lunch with hot or cold drink and a good debrief afterwards. We have many marine ID books in the dive centre to help you identify the critters you have seen.
