Shore Dive, Cape Town, South Africa | The Cape waters are littered with thousands of shipwrecks, recent and ancient, on the shore and in deep water. On our shore dives we visit the many fascinating diving locations all around the Cape Peninsula. You can choose from dives like kelp diving, wreck diving or any of our colorful reefs. Common wreck dives are the Maori, the Astor, the Katzu Maru, the Smitswinkel Bay wrecks, the Pietermaritzburg, and the Clan Stuart.

As with reef dives we are most interested in diving some of the lesser known wrecks and we have even discovered a few over the years.
