Having booked a dive with blue vision, turning up to find the equipment faulty, the management missing and the dive master baked. I decided it wasn't for me and landed on the doorstep of the Aliwal Dive Lodge. Sadly I had missed the boat... literally!
Pam and Claire working in reception, did their utmost to find me another dive somewhere in town, calling round other places until they found one for me. Friendly and helpful, the lodge was clean, tidy and professional looking (I think better than where I did end up).
If I were in the area again I would make a beeline for the Aliwal Dive Lodge.
