Carel is a SPECTACULAR guide. I easily saw 10x more on my dives with him than on my dives with a larger op. His spotting skills are legendary but as a working instructor he's also extremely patient, managing any diver difficulties with grace, humour and quiet expertise. He's also a keen naturalist so as we were gearing up by the... More

HI Natasha Thank you for your kind words. Was great to have had a fellow Nudibranch hunter visiting. Even better as you liked the long long dives like one of 116 minutes dives. Next time we will get more great things done when you back in Cape town. Happy diving and Nudibranch Hunting. Regards Carel van der Colff More

I wanted to share my love of diving with my 12 year old grandson and we went to Carel of DiveInn to do an Introduction to Scuba course, and then a dive in Simonstown. Carel was amazing with my grandson. The first thing my grandson said after the dive was: WHEN can we do that again? So thank you Carel... More

I just chanced upon Carel of DiveInn CT but what a find! From the moment I made contact prior to arriving in Cape Town to the mornings of the dive and afterwards Carel was extremely clear in communications. The personal service of a small group and huge amount of knowledge just pours out of him. I am already planning another... More

I am almost hesitant posting a rating here, as that would mean divers in the know would not have Carel to themselves in the future! Have been diving for two decades all over the world and Dive Inn is one of those rare gems of Diving operators. Taking only small groups, extremely knowledgeable, passionate about the sea and all in... More

Had the pleasure of meeting Carel, one of the tour guides. Sensational guy. Helpful in ways i didn't expect. Thoughtful and down to earth. I am not sure if there are better tour guides in the world.

This was my first ever dive trip, so apart from other divers' tales of Sodwana, I had no idea what to expect. But Carel of Dive Inn was very helpful in telling me what sort of wetsuit to wear (my 6.5mm Cape Town suit was probably a bit too much!), what to pack (camera charger!) and what to leave at... More
