Scuba Dive and Diving Courses Gordons Bay

Gordons Bay is a diving mecca. Dive sites abound, from easy shore based dives, to deeper reef dives that are only accessed by boat. The region is home arguably the the best shore dive sites on the eastern side of False Bay. All can be accessed by boat, whilst access from the shore is limited, as the coastline is rugged and steep, dive sites however are all close to shore, with a sandy bottom and hardly any kelp. There are two launch sites: Harbour Island and the Old Harbour.

Fancy learning to scuba dive? No problem, the Alpha Dive centre has all the facilities with PADI and SSI training courses starting from as little as R650, equipment hire, dive pool and qualified instructors.

Scuba dive sites Gordons Bay

Bikini Beach:
Not well known as a dive site, as this is a popular Blue Flag beach, frequented by tourists and students alike. It is also accessible from the shore when weather conditions are right. A small reef dive, with a maximum depth of around 3 metres.

Ledges:
This is another reef dive site that is only accessable by boat. Much deeper, with a maximum depth of around 9 metres. The site is named after an exposed ledge on the shore, which is a great landmark visible from the sea. Reasonably flat bottom with small, rounded boulders and sand.
