Great trip - The guys at Pisces were very accommodating, doing their absolute best to make sure I got as much out of my time diving in SA as possible! Friendly and knowledgeable bunch. completed my Nitrox course with Ryan even taking time to teach tables - which he didn't have to do - but was greatly appreciated by me.

I stacked four dives in two days to make the most of my time here and Pisces made it absolutely worth it: beautiful sites and friendly service. Jacqui was very helpful in selecting the sites and all the other staff members were also full of interesting information about the area and the sea life. Absolutely worth it, highly recommended.

While in Cape Town for work, I contacted Jacqui at Pisces Divers to find out about the possibilities for diving. She arranged two days of gorgeous boat diving for me, as well as a very convenient car transfer down to Simon's Town from a local tour company. All of the gear rental was included (very handy while traveling) and everything... More

They were so welcoming and helpful. They helped me connect with other divers in my hostel to arrange a ride. The dives were awesome! There were orcas in the area so the seven gill sharks were not around but we saw Pyjama sharks and lots of other amazing things in the kelp forest. Awesome experience, loved the food and warm...

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!
