Description

Pisces Divers is a friendly and professional PADI dive centre located in Cape Town, just a few metres from the False Bay coast in Glencairn in the South peninsula.
We offer all levels of PADI dive training from beginner to professional level, as well as diving equipment rental and sales, a servicing workshop for all major brands, and an airfill and nitrox service.

Being so close to the sea, we can offer dives daily. There are a huge variety of dive sites within close range, from shallow shore entries with kelp forests to deeper wreck and reef dives. Our boat launches several times a week, so call the shop for the weeks dive plan or even just for a dive report.

Many divers are drawn to Cape Town to see White Sharks - these can be seen, as well as several other pelagic and reef shark species.

The Western Cape is the smallest complete floral kingdom in the world and this diversity is mirrored underwater with the unique positioning of the peninsula at the junction of two major ocean currents.
The Atlantic is cooled by the Benguela current coming up from the southern Atlantic and bringing with it water rich in micro-organisms. This accounts for the huge kelp forests found on the Atlantic as well as the fish, seals and whales which feed on the smaller animals. The False Bay is influenced by the tail end of the warmer Mozambique current which moves Southwards down the East coast of Africa. This results in slightly warmer water and different marine life - more invertebrates and colourful sponges.
The Cape has so many reefs and wrecks that we simply don't have space to describe them all here. Instead of listing the commonly dived sites, we have included some unusual sites which, in our opinion, are more interesting:
Cape Town has a wide range of dive sites – shallow and gentle shore entries in sheltered coves all the way to deep reefs and wrecks way out to sea and off Cape Point. While this map is by no means a complete list of Cape Town’s dive sites, these are some of the sites Pisces Divers visit regularly and new sites will appear from time to time as we explore and discover more.
One of the pleasures of diving in Cape Town is the relatively rare privilege of being able to do excellent dives right from the shore – we have listed many of these on the map for your interest. Please note that some of these sites are remote and unattended
