Cape Peninsula, Western Cape
The Cape Peninsula and False Bay region includes well over 100 dive sites, ranging from wreck dives, reef dives and kelp forests to seal dives and shark cage-diving. The temperatures in the two oceans differ considerably and are responsible for the remarkable diversity of underwater life and scenery.
False Bay offers great year-round diving, with the opportunity to experience wreck, seal and reef dives. The rocky reefs in False Bay are characterised by big boulders covered in an array of colourful sea sponges, fans, anemones and soft corals.
A dive on the Western Seaboard is characterised by kelp forests, seals and colourful soft corals, and several excellent wreck sites. The water temperatures are cold - between 10 and 12 degrees Celsius – so there is no escaping the need for a well-fitting, thick wetsuit.
