Boat Dives in Plett

Plettenberg Bay has a variety of spectacular shallow reefs only a 5-minute boat ride from the beach. These shallow sites showcase the colour and beauty of Plett diving and the beauty of the Eastern Cape reefs. The Sea fans are draped in Basket Stars and groups of Shysharks rest in the rocky crevices. Large Red Roman, Zebras and Blacktail share space with numerous species of nudibranchs, orange wall sponge and purple soft coral making for a fireworks display of colour! Our most popular dive site is Jacob’s reef characterised by a large pinnacle and spectacular wall dive covered in soft corals.

The choice of shallow dive site will be decided on the day based on the weather and sea conditions.
