Great business to dive with. The whole experience was smooth and easy. I was a bit worried about the water temperature but we were outfitted with double layers, hoods, boots and gloves. Totally cosy in the water. Big thanks to Megan for the flawless booking and to Josh for leading the friendly and fun dive (and dealing with all my gear, saving me from the kelp forest, putting my fins back on, lifting me back in the boat etc… 😉) Really impressed with the capability & passion of the crew who seem genuinely excited to be out on the water with their guests. Thank you all! I had a blast 🤿

Couldn't ask for a better experience
Everyone at Scuba Shack are 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. Special shout out to Megan, you are the most incredible instructor. Can't imagine there's a better team to dive with. Cape Town is awesome.
Will be back for many more fun dives!

Booked a dive with Nicholas of Scuba Shack for our trip to Cape Town. He was very good with communication leading up to our trip and was very accommodating. My girlfriend unfortunately fell ill just before our trip so Nicholas kindly gave her a full refund, no questions asked a few days before we arrived. On the morning of the trip it was awful weather and Nicholas informed me it was about 2 meters of visibility, so we decided to not dive. Unfortunately we couldn’t dive at all this trip but Nicholas gave us a full refund as he would rather we didn’t dive and have a bad time. Great service, shame we didn’t actually get to dive with Nicholas.

I was in February 2023 with Nick for two dives. I am a beginner and I felt very save and Nick was very professional . The Group was very small so the dive was more intimitate . He is very expierienced diver, He knows what He do and do not take risks . We saw a massiv sting Ray and the amazing forest, Cape Town is so famous for .

I emailed Scuba shack after a last minute change of plans led us to being in Cape Town for and extra day. Justin quickly replied and took us diving 24 hours later, just my wife and I. He was so friendly, had everything set up for us when we arrived and took us down an amazing shore dive through the kelp forests and a reef. Very communicative leading up to the dive, answered all our questions and had gear that fit us perfectly. Would highly recommend!

We had such a lovely time with scuba shack and their instructor Justin. We booked this a while ago and everything went as clock work. The dives were fantastic we saw pajama sharks, Ray's and lots of local marine life. The cost was very reasonable and all the dive gear was great condition. Justin clearly knew his way around under the Ocean and has vast experience which made us newbies very comfortable. We slightly over paid when we paid in advance and we were not aware, scuba shack gave us the overpayment back immediately and informed us. Very impressive all around and personal service.
