We will guide you professionally and safely on our reef and let you interact with our sharks and other marine animals without coming to harm. We believe in Eco-Tourism and Eco-Education and our mission is to fight for the conservation of Protea Banks, the inshore reefs and their inhabitants such as the sharks, the dolphins, the whales and all the other creatures down the line. It is also part of our mission to give each and every diver from near and far the best and safest possible diving experience on Protea Banks. You will never be asked to look after a weaker buddy and you will never have to watch a beginner diver learning how to dive. What To Expect Onboard: The Avatar is the latest addition to our fleet. She is also the longest of our ribs at 8.2m which makes her very comfortable for our passengers and safe to drive for our skippers. Two brand new 85's ensure a safe launch and a pleasant voyage even in rough seas. The extra space makes a huge difference especially during the Sardine Run when divers are on the boat all day. Also for our Baited Tiger Shark Dive with all the bait, baiting station, cables etc the extra space is most pleasant.
