“Real diving for Real divers!”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

One of the best experiences you'll have diving in SA. This small, family owned and run, company gives you exactly what you want out of a SCUBA excursion. The Pirzenthal's (owners) have a long history in the area and their knowledge of the surrounding waters is hard to beat. Personalized service and a good time is the order of the day here, with a good laugh every step of the way. On the diving side they're equipped to give you exactly what you're looking for, from excellent instruction to novice sites and they've always got something a bit more adventures up their sleeve, if you're up for it. Their resident videographer Tanya is always along for the ride and is happy to create a beautiful memory for you and the family. The instructors, Joshua and Juley-anne, have years of experience in the water and will ensure safety, fun and patience, their passion for the sea will shine through weather you join them for a course or are lucky enough to have them as a dive guide. With all this combined with a dive center boasting good company, hot showers AND coffee, there's no reason to look any further for a good time diving at Aliwal Shoal.
