I'd had some difficulties on a previous dive in Umkumas and was apprehensive about doing another on my trip to South Africa. I'm glad I did. Divemaster Josh looked after me well - I was lucky to be his sole client that day - the other diver had cancelled. Josh took the time to listen to my concerns and made... More

Into the blue scuba dive center has an amazing group of people working there. They make every dive a fun experience, even if the conditions aren't great. They are very professional and I can recommend them to both newbies as well as experienced divers. I have been back in Cape Town several times over the past 2 years and I... More

Into the blue is a very well organised and professionally run dive shop. I dived with Into the blue last week, and despite having an early meeting time was greeted by the staff with instant smiles and friendliness. Within 15 minutes the blond lady at reception had our whole groups paperwork sorted, gear packed, and introductions given. There was a... More

The reason for giving five stars is not because my dive day was good - it was horrible, a complete washout, no viz, unpleasant swell, just all round yucky conditions. However, that's nature, and dive operators can do nothing about it. What all dive operators should do is be as professional and customer-focused as the guys from ITB diving. First... More

I booked my Padi Open Water course through Into the Blue and was impressed from start to finish. Easy booking, friendly service and great location. Staff make you feel right at home from the word go, but are professional and always make you feel safe. Small groups helped to get to know people and make new friends from across the... More

I did two fun dives with Into The Blue (plus I also booked the shark cage dive through them) and I had an excellent experience. The communication via email was great and the brunette at reception (I'm really sorry but I didn't catch your name) was very friendly and helpful. My dive guide for the day was Jacque, who was...

I had a great dive with cow sharks near Miller's point but there is still some room for improvement with Into the Blue. I had contacted the dive center 2 months before going to Cape Town.

Did an open water scuba dive course and had such an incredible time. Everyone there is so friendly and super professional. You can really see how passionate they all are about diving, and giving others the chance to experience what they do everyday. As an amputee, I was a little apprehensive about what I was getting myself into, but someone... More

We went diving a couple of times with Into the Blue and had a great time. The crew was really friendly and professional and took care of all everything like driving us to the dive sites and back, washing the diving gear and changing the cylinders and we almost felt bad not having to do anything. Will definitely recommend them... More

I am so happy I chose this dive company to go with for our 2 dives in Cape Town, it was unforgettable. We got picked up from our hotel on time, (thank you) and we took a small boat out to the dive site. Very bumpy but high winds made for rough seas. The first dive to the wreck was... More
