Port St. Johns: Mid June – end of July.
Like any wildlife encounter it is not guaranteed, however a day out on the ocean can bring about anything anytime and you are sure to be rewarded with awesome encounters with marine life.
We do both – whether you are a snorkeller or a diver you can still partake in the action. However, it all depends on the size of the baitball and how fast it moves as to whether we use scuba or snorkel.. Your skipper will be your guide and advise you what to use.
Like any adventure the more experience you have the better, however we can cater for all levels of experience. It is however mandatory to have a diving qualification to use scuba, where for snorkelling no experience needed. On your first day, if the conditions allow we will be doing a check dive to make sure that you are comfortable with your equipment, have proper buoyancy control and to familiarise yourself with the conditions.
The water temperature varies between 14 & 20 degrees Celsius and we recommend 5mm- 7mm wetsuits, including a diving hood & booties. It is suggested that wetsuits and fins be dark in colour and that divers avoid shiny / bright / luminous items of dive gear. Dry suits are not ideal as they create drag on the surface of the water when snorkelling and are quite cumbersome when it comes to getting on and off the boat on a regular basis.
We provide 12L tanks Din/Int and weights and have all the other equipment available for rental.
Rebreathers are not recommended as they are cumbersome & not practical for staying with the fast moving action.
