Boat Dives

Explore Cape Town's favourite boat-accessible dive sites!

Cape Town is home to several popular shipwrecks and various kelp forests in the False Bay waters - these are known to inhabit a wide variety of marine species. The visibility can vary between four to ten metres, depending on season and weather, which means there is a lot to see!

The Cape fur seals who occupy this area have grown popular amongst divers. These amusing animals, which can be seen darting and twisting through the water, adore interacting with divers and are often a highlight of many diving excursions.
