Underwater Photos taken in Jeffreys Bay
These are some of the photos taken and dive logs written mostly by myself or Jacques Alberts who operated in Jeffreys Bay under the African Waters Scuba brand since 2011. Jacques introduced me to SCUBA diving, and taught me everthing about diving. I include these photos and stories here, so that you can get an idea of what it looks like underwater in our area.
What a surprise it was to find a Spider on Jagged Edge reef. Thanks to Koos who pointed it out and also found another smaller one. We are so lucky to dive unspoilt reefs with so many creatures on them. After more than 2 years of diving on the same reefs new things are still found on almost every dive.
On both days we dived Discovery Channel due to almost no swell, warm water and great viz. Heidi and Jaco who joined us on their discover scuba dive saw a nice 2,5m raggie, loads of fish life, nudi's, anenomy etc just to name a few things. A school of Jutt Jaw fish also joined in the fun and to see such a big school was very uncommon.
On Saturday we did our very first double tank dives to St Francis. Overcast and raining but determined to dive those reefs having waited so long to do so. On our way there a whale and her calf were playing in the bay opposite Paradys. Splashing with their tails and reminding us of their power. As the rains hit we still had about 3km to go before our first dive.
On 15 December we started the Holiday season off with a couple of PADI DSD's. Nice warm water in the pool at Steve's place who had forgotten that he had left the hose in the pool and filled it to the brim. Heidi and Jaco from JBay, Collett from Natal and Estel from Spain enjoyed their experience and joined us on a dive in the Ocean the following day. Here are some pics....
On Saturday 22 Oct we had two PADI Discover Scuba Diving sessions at the Savoy hotel. Some were very nervous to go underwater but as they got used to the feeling of breathing underwater it was more difficult to get them out the water. All 4 of them also decided to do an ocean dive on Sunday morning.

Providing this service is a way for me to fund boat ownership and my hobby and I provide a sort of a "water taxi" service for divers while I do that. I don't provide a Dive Master, but you can request one and we can hear who is available. I will provide you with a surface marker so I can see where you are. Your underwater safety is your own responsibility. You have to provide your own dive equipment. Airfills can be done at R 80 per airfill. I can't guarantee visibility or the weather, but will endevour to choose the best conditions. No show + no excuse or cancellation 24 hours before dive = no refund. If I canceld the dive because of bad weather, you will get the credit to use on anothe dive.
