My boyfriend and I had an amazing time on our dives! We saw a cow shark on our first dive, but the seals were definitely the highlight of the second dive. The best part was how knowledgeable and informative our skipper was about Southern Africa marine life, and how willing he was to teach. A safe, smart and reliable dive... More

What a great day. The company arranged for a car to pick us up in Cape Town in order to get to Simon's Town. Once at the dive shop, it was in full swing, but we were helped quickly, introduced to our snorkel/master Joseph and our Captain for the day, Neil. We were surprised we were the only ones on...

I decided to obtain my PADI Open Water qualification from Pisces Divers when visiting Cape Town. Booking in via email from New Zealand was a breeze and my questions were answered promptly. The location is easy to find and is located adjacent to the local metro station. It is also convenient for the local beach where dive training is conducted.... More

One of the best experiences we've ever had! The seals were everywhere and love to swim around you. The guides are fantastic, very knowledgable of the area and the seals, as well as being super friendly!

My husband and I did the sevengill shark and seal dive package with Pisces Divers and had a great day. The communication in advance of our trip was excellent - emails were answered promptly and thoroughly (which is something I very much appreciate in a dive shop.) The shark dive was first, and we were warned that the sevengills are... More

If you want to brag about your testosterone-driven cage dive where wildlife is made to perform for you, there are plenty of places that will cater for you and your mates. It seemed (to me at least) to be a bit harder to find a 'proper' dive centre that caters for interests beyond that. Pisces is that place. I had... More

Excellent service and quality of divemasters. Did both seals and sevengill shark sites and on the way saw two whale sharks( 2mtrs from the dingy) doing some fishing themselves. Temp was 14-15 celcius and we were properly equipped. People used to asia diving - this is cold at the time of the jump and after 30 min in water. Visibility... More

We are happy to hear that you found our service excellent, we do try and maintain our high standards of customer service.
