Me and my 2 children went for 2 DSDs. It was absolutely worth the while. Martin and Josh were very professional and did everything to make our dives something to remember

Had a terrible time with Picses. Louis picked us up and our gear but started driving off whilst i was still climbing over the dive cylinders to sit down. He seemed to be angry with us before collecting us. Driving with customers still finding seating with cylinders piled in the back put us all at risk. He later sent out a Whasapp message saying that customers must not ask to be collected unless there are 3 or more. There were 3 of us. The new boat has two large boxes at the back. There is not enough space and we were constantly told to get to the back of the boat. I landed up kitting up on the boxes with difficulty and was then shouted at to mind the fuel line. I am not sure where we are supplosed to kit up as we all have to stay at the back of the boat, but there is not enough space for everyone. I also dont normally get shouted at by the skipper as though i am an irritating toddler. You are not allowed to ask for help onto the boat. There is a horse stirup to climb on, but everyone is crowded on the back of the boat so getting back onto the boat is a challenge. The stirup was not hanging over after one of our dives so we floated next to the boat for a long time. The pontoon is blown up rock hard which makes it high, a challenge to get up. When launching, there is no stopping to hand out life jackets. These are flung at the customers during the launch. This seemed unsafe and not something i have encountered before. There is no boat safety talk before launching. I thought this was a mandatory thing, i stand to be corrected, perhaps other skippers are over cautious. Sodwana has been my happy place for a very long time. We go there 5 times per year, but Picses left a bitter taste after going with them which upset me as i have always felt wellcome and safe at Sodwana, until diving with Picses. Their boat layout does not allow for that amout of divers on the boat, and i felt as though it was inconvenient for them to have us, even though we were paying customers. :(

I can’t recommend Pisces highly enough. I recently completed my PADI Open Water with them in Sodwana Bay and had the best experience. The Pisces team were incredibly welcoming and treated me like family, and my instructors Martin and Josh were excellent - full of kindness, patience, encouragement and lots of humour 😃 The reefs at Sodwana are really beautiful with a wide variety of corals and sea life, and the Pisces team will go out of their way to take you to the best spots. Thank you to Anna, Martin, Josh, Chris, Paul, Louis, Rogan and the rest of the team for a really special holiday. I can’t wait to go back!

I have been diving with Louis and the team from Pisces Diving Charter in Sodwana since 1996. I did my very first sea dive with them and have subsequently done in excess of 300 dives with them. They have always gone out of their way to make every dive a memorable one. Eveything works every time ! I cannot recommend them enough.

We have dived at Sodwana for many years and through a recommendation of a friend, decided to dive with Pisces this time around. What a great team, maybe smaller than some of the other operators but in our view, better, due to their attention to detail, personal service, great instructors and intimate knowledge of the Sodwana reefs. The dives we did were all very chilled, and what's great is that there is no feeling of being rushed to get the next boat of divers out, and this makes the Pisces experience all the more memorable. Highly recommend Pisces if you are diving at Sodwana
