South Africa is home to a magnificent variety of marine life - on the West Coast, cool water fish and underwater species thrive, while the East Coast accommodates warm water, tropical ocean life.

SA is thus a premier diving and snorkelling destination, seen on the to-do list of many tourists and holiday-makers. There is good diving all year round but, as a rule, winter is the best time for the entire coast. If you’re up for an ocean adventure, you can’t go wrong with an underwater safari!
