My wife and i were very keen to swim with sharks rather than do the cage diving thing, so we booked the pelagic dive trip with Pisces Diving. We do not have diving qualifications so elected to snorkel instead, and joined the trip with 5 other divers (plus guides). The trip exceeded our expectations. Very well organised, and safety of...

On Wednesday 22.03.17 I had the 2nd best dive ever (out of 115). Seven Blue sharks took backstage when three Makos arrived. Beware this trip might lead to multiple, spontaneous fits of hedonism. A whale sighting off Smitswinkle, the sweeping views of the Cape Peninsula and the pelagic birds added to an awesome half day trip. Dive Guide Mike and... More

I did the seal dive and it was an unforgettable experience, quite easy and the water was not as cold as people say. Pisces divers is a very professional center with knowledgeable, friendly and helpful staff. They are doing fantastic tours and I will certainly return. They are very flexible and you can do both diving and freediving/snorkeling with them.

The Seal dive is a must as they are definitely the ultimate clowns of the sea and the reef that goes along with the seal experience is loaded with life and color and really shows off how beautiful our waters are.

Would I use the company again? No When we undertook the snorkelling with seals, the focus was on getting the cash rather than safety.

I just recently completed my PADI open water at Pisces, and had a completely brilliant experience. My instructor, Davi, was awesome and explained everything clearly. When it came to revising for the theory I realised I knew almost all of it already from Davi's lessons in the pool. He also has a great knowledge of the dives sites, marine life,... More

This was one of 2 boats hired to take us out to watch albatrosses and other seabirds south of Cape Point. They had to go much further than expected to catch up with the trawlers in order to see the main feeding flocks but nothing was too much trouble. They were booked through Cape Boat Charters which I wholeheartedly recommend.
