A HUGE thank you to Maaike and her team! Especially Mia and Rhian hope I'm spelling that right). I was very nervous as hadn't dived in a few years but was made to feel comfortable, not to rush. Great little refresher in the pool first. 3 dives in total for myself and boyfriend. Mally the skipper is highly skilled and... More

My girlfriend and i spent a weekend diving with scubaxcursion, we arrived a bit early on the Saturday morning whilst they were still opening and were immediately welcomed and made to feel at home! We had four amazing dives and were treated to excellent conditions. Overall Great vibe, friendly, helpful, professional staff! We will be back soon without a doubt!

Being an instructor I've dived quite a bit at a few different dive centres and I believe that what makes a dive centre awesome is not necessarily the dives, but the vibe at the dive centre and on dives. Although the dives were amazing and left us just wanting more, the helpfull and friendly staff is what makes the place... More

We had a great time because of the enthusiastic and experienced crew. Not only in the water, but also before and after the dive, Maaike and her guys made us feel welcome in the diving family! Aliwal shoal was perfect place for our first dives and we were confident because of the well maintained gear.

I am a fairly new diver and have heard so much about the amazing dive sites around Scottburgh at Aliwal Shoal. I have also heard that if you can dive the Shoal, you are experienced enough to dive anywhere else. What a daunting thought for a new diver. We were received at ScubaXcursion from the first hello as if we... More

We went to Scottbourgh in peak season during our holiday to do some diving and found the perfect dive centre with ScubaX! The owners and all the guides, skippers and staff members are super friendly and make you feel at home immediately. They first helped us out with accommodation as the caravan park asked R800 per night which is just... More

They are extremely professional and really make you feel welcome. Scuba experience was really good and the shark diving is honestly the most humbiling experience.
