Guided Shore Dives

Guided Shore Dives

Explore off-shore! 

Cape Town's coastal waters are home to a large diversity of marine species, including colourful reef fish, playful seals, graceful rays, and even the occasional shark. These beautiful underwater scenes are accessible right off our shore - if you know where to look!

Guided Shore Dives with the Two Oceans Aquarium provide access to several excellent dive sites to explore in the area, ranging from shallow protected reefs to deep challenging wrecks. Cape Town distinctively allows for a vast array of shore access from both sides of the peninsula, which allows for various shore dive location points. False Bay boasts stunning, dense kelp forests, that not only offer a unique habitat to be explored - but also serve as a haven for little creatures and schools of reef fish.
