We offer airport transfers for divers who prefer not to drive themselves

We have 3 boats and can accommodate 30 divers at a time. The skippers that will take you out to the reef are all well experienced and SAMSA certified. These boats all carry oxygen and the relevant safety equipment.
All boats carry a Seaworthy Certificate that is has to be renewed on an annual basis.

If you are an advanced diver and would like to enjoy the thrill of spectacular diving with sharks, then you need to speak to us!
We offer a high standard of safety and professionalism. We believe in ECO-Tourism and ECO-Education and our mission is to fight for the conservation of Protea Banks, the inshore reefs and their inhabitants such as the sharks, the dolphins, the whales and all the other creatures down the line.

All of us at African Dive Adventures are passionate about what we do. We aim to give our clients a safe and unforgettable experience. Safety is very important to us and we will not compromise as far as this is concerned. The safety measures carried out by African Dive Adventures Staff provide the prerequisite for an unforgettable diving experience.... the big guys do the rest.

Where to meet and when……

Our Dive Boats launch from the Sony Evans Small Craft Harbour in Shelly Beach, which offer divers many facilities.
Our kit up area is free of sand, and you only have to walk 50m to the sea where the boat will be waiting for you.
We normally meet for dives at 7h00 am in the morning in summer and 8h00 am in winter.
It is however advisable to check the times, when you book your dive with us.

Toilets and showers are situated in the club house as well as next to the Control Tower. The restaurant has a
perfect Sea View with a bar and swimming pool where your family and friends can relax while you are out on a dive. The NSRI
is on hand to assist in case of any emergencies and our boats are in constant radio contact with the Control Tower.

Roland & Beulah Mauz
Owners of African Dive Adventures, have been diving Protea Banks since 1996. Beulah, born in South Africa, lived in Germany for 5 years while Roland was studying Business Administration in Kempten, Germany. During her stay in Germany, Beulah made acquaintance with its citizens and mastered the German language marvellously. Roland, raised in southern Germany, spent two years serving the German Navy after which he travelled the world. When he finished his studies in 1989, Roland and Beulah went back to Beulah's native country, South Africa. They married on the Comores where both of them got fascinated with scuba diving. Roland has done more than 2000 dives just on Protea Banks.
