I am so glad you had a good time with us. This is what we are here for.

This is the 2nd time I've dived with African Dive Adventures. They are a great team, friendly, professional and they made me and my buddy feel like part of the family. Diving did not disappoint plenty of sharks and other life to see, great accommodation...More
Very efficient but slightly impersonal potentially due to the large number of people that was diving that day. DM's briefing was great (one of the best I've sat through!) and we were fortunate enough to dive with an experienced group so no trouble with depth...More

Pretty unfair report.
We have been diving Protea Banks for over 20 years. We know the reef, the sharks and the weather. What Simon did not mention is the fact that due to strong winds we only managed to do one dive each day. The...More
Diving with Steve, Roland and skipper Spike isn’t always easy due the rough sea and weather conditions in Protea Banks. This is a dive destination for experienced divers and shark lovers. But you get rewarded by excellent shark sightings. I will come back in January/February...More

I love diving with people who can dive well and also can take a beating by the elements if necessary. This time of the year we have to...More
What an amazing dive with African Dive Adventures!!! Wow.
My students saw school after school of Hammerheads, the divemaster delivered a thorough dive briefing and then safely escorted the group on the dive with Oceanic Blacktips, Bull Sharks and Grey Nurse sharks at every turn....More

Roland's reply to my review has been taken down but in summary he was aggressive and inappropriate. Made assumptions of my ethnicity and accused me of making things up and living on a different planet. Very professional...
