Coral divers is always a safe bet when you're looking for an easy going trip. They are located in the reserve, which is much better than staying in town. Prices are fair, their food menu is a little limited, but food is fuel, so just feed me and put me in the water. The one issue I do have is...

Our family went with friends to Sodwana after completing our PADI open water courses, and did 2 dives with Coral Divers. It was amazing with friendly staff and skippers, and wonderful sightings of moray eels and rays. Highly recommended, but they don't offer spearfishing.

I have been there only for one day. I did two dives with Coral Divers at 2 mile reef. My divemaster Craig did a great job! My last dive was three years ago bud he made me feel very comfortable! The only thing is missed was a shark 😜

Great stay at coral divers. We stayed in the standard cabins, with the self-catering options, nothing fancy. Facilities provided were what we needed. The dives were amazing with awesome dive masters. Will be back

I stayed in a Safari tent. They are a little close to each other, but in terms of value for money this is excellent! If you want a little bit more privacy, then the chalets are probably a better option. Staff were very friendly, and facilities functional and clean.

We had a great trip we had a chance to get our PADI with great young and cool teacher. They were super welcoming and took a lot of time to listen to us and explain us. The tente was OK but not great, the food was good but took a really long time to arrive. But in general it is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Coral Divers is a PADI 5 star Gold Palm IDC/CDC Centre situated in Sodwana Bay, South Africa. We are proud to be able to provide all levels of PADI scuba instruction from Bubble Maker to Instructor Development Courses as well as accommodation and dive charters. Lying within the boundaries of the Isimangaliso Wetland Park, Sodwana Bay provides the travelling diver with a vast array of unspoilt coral reefs populated with a huge diversity of Indo-Pacific fish & invertebrates. Apart from the great diving & beautiful coral reefs, the area offers fun and excitement for the non-diver too. From quad bike riding, kiteboarding and paintballing to day trips to Makhasa Game Reserve for Rhino or Buffalo tracking on foot, you're sure to find something that appeals to you, your friends and/or family. Coral Divers offers you a very comfortable diving holiday experience while retaining the rustic appeal of an out-of-the-way bush camp. The area is covered with dense coastal forest offering exquisite scenery, bird watching, and a number of small mammals including Bush Babies, Genets, Duiker and Striped Mongoose. Sodwana is accessible by car, however we can arrange transfers from Hluhluwe - Bushlands (The BazBus drop off point) should you not have your own vehicle. Petrol & Diesel are available from the petrol station in the National Park, and there is a small supermarket which can provide you with essentials such as food, drink and sun block. There are a couple of restaurants both within and outside of the Park, as well as our local night club, 'Maak 'n Jol', where you can dance the night away. Sodwana is also within driving distance of a number of amazing game reserves including Makhasa Game Reserve, Mkhuze Game Reserve, Phinda Game Reserve & the Hluhluwe Mfolozi Park. We invite you to take a look through our site to find out a little more about Coral Divers - Sodwana Bay and the diving. ... more   less
