Once again we were very happy diving with Reef Teach. We did 5 days diving consisting of 2 or 3 dives a day, some involving double tank dives when diving the further away reefs. The guides Brian and Brad were very good at giving briefs, accommodating the dives we asked for and we're just as enthusiastic as we were during...

I thoroughly enjoyed this well organized outfit. It was very busy when I was there with 4 boats and 40 divers all needing attention. The dives were great and each dive was about 60 minutes long. I would rate these reefs better than Mauritius where I dived 2 weeks ago.

Hi Eugene, thanks for the kind words. Sorry we couldn't give you the attention we would have liked to. Being a crazy long weekend makes it difficult. Come when it's quieter and we can pay you much more attention and do unlimited time diving. Cheers, Brian

I booked here so my kids (12 and 13) and I could do our PADI open water divers certification from scratch without prior online learning. Layla and Tierre who trained us were really committed and passionate about getting us certified. By getting us in the pool and the water so quickly we really understood the theory behind the PADI manual...

As soon as I booked my flight, to return to Africa for 2017, I booked my diving slot with reefteach for the 3rd time. The staff are flexible to which dive sites were visited and varied the diving we did as we did a 5 day dive package! The dive sites are very enjoyable and you never quite know what...

This lodge specializes in providing a place to stay if you are a Scuba Diver and wishing to use their lodge and diving facilities. The lodge is not 5 star but very comfortable and excellent value for money. The diving that can be arranged through Reefteach is World Class and in my opinion the best in Sodwana.

That's the only minus point we had when it comes to rating Reefteach Lodge. Otherwise staying out of the park is probably even better because of all the shops and restaurant around. The room we've got was clean and spacious and got cleaned every day; something we wouldn't have expected from a dive lodge. Diving with Reefteach is great too...

The US$, Euro and the pound is way too strong for South Africans to travel abroad. So, this time around, it had to be local.
