Dive sites

We have a magnificent beach: Here you can dive from the shore all year round!

The reef is located in the extension of our beach, opposite the diving center. Very easy to launch on foot from the beach.

We are the only center in Port Ghalib that can use a speedboat on the housereef, which allows drift dives all along this magnificent one km long reef.

The drop-off is covered with hard coral and soft coral, and allows easy dives in the 20/30 meter zone. You will find reef fauna there, and also remember to look into the blue because you will regularly see eagle rays, turtles, wrasses, trevally, barracudas and occasionally dolphins.

“Magnificent dives to do all year round”

“Dives on our housereef of course, but also on other magnificent sites accessible by jeep or boat. »

We also offer many activities and excursions that allow you to arrange your stay according to your desires.

Once you have arrived at the dive center and after you have visited the facilities, we will present you various possible activities, the various dive sites that fit to your diving level, and the schedule of the current week.
