Diving is always great, but having a dive centre like Agulhas House to help and prepare makes the dive even more wonderful. The centre is well equipped and the staff friendly and helpful. All in all it is is great venue with wonderful people,, we will be back.

I would recommend this company. I booked at short notice and they accommodated a shark feeding dive (with another company) and a ragged tooth dive. They were excellent dives, with great guides. I didn't appreciate that I got 200 bars and everyone else got 230, so I had to go up early, but that could happen everywhere. Friendly people with... More

Aliwal shoal diving is rated as one of the top in the world. We have stayed and dived at many different places here but Agulhas House is a cut above all else. You will find excellent comfortable lodging, great hosts who are very accommodating and a well run dive operation that cater for technical, recreational and rebreather divers. I doubt... More
