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.

Sunday was a very interesting day. We had another full boat and only launched later during the day because there were some refresher pool sessions that were done during the morning. Lots of the usual suspects were there like Lucy and Bertus, and we had a couple of visitors from PE.

thumb_DSC_2870_01On Saturday we had some PADI Open Water Diver students who had to do some of their ocean skills as well as a Divemaster in training, and decided to do a shallow dive at what we call Discovery Channel Reef. As we kitted up, we were greeted by the sunrise and a beautiful day. For some of the guys and gals, it was their first dive in a month and they were just amping to dive, no matter what the conditions were!

thumb_dscf1298Due to maintenance on the boat we didn't launch last weekend although it was perfect weather for diving. On Sunday I did a dive with ODI at Fort Raggie at 15:00 in the afternoon. The visibility was about 15m and the temperature was 17deg. A per usual the dive site stood up to its name and we saw

dscf1334On Saturday we dived Moondrop Reef at the Wild Side. Big swell was running but it turned out to be a nice sunny day. We had approx 4 to 5m viz and the bottom temp was 14 deg. Due to lots of people suffering from flue we only did one launch but a big congrats to Natasha who completed her PADI Open Water diver course and an even bigger congrats to Annalize who completed her PADI Dive Master course.

thumb_DSC_1830exportOn Saturday morning we didn't launch due to strong winds picking up but it rained and rained in JBay. About time is all we can say about it. The pool at the Savoy was filled to the edge and it was a cold rainy day when we started with our PADI Open Water Diver pool sessions.


Please note:

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.
