Super late review but better than never! Joined Aqua Planet on their debut Sardine Run 2021 and it was THE most incredible experience of my life. Kyle is a great skipper and is not stingy with the amount of fuel and mileage covered in order to put his divers on the spot. Both Kyle and Michelle are very accomodating, and Mdumbi Backpackers is an amazing spot, esp for South Africans wanting to be able to afford this spectacle which occurs every year in our own back yard! I wish I could do it every year guys!

GLORIOUS! I joined a trip organised by Aqua Planet to Sodwana in January 2020 as part of my Open Water PADI. The entire experience was an absolute delight with me overwhelmed by the dive experience, the excellent insights and really getting to experience the treasures of the sealife. At one point i did not feel there was enough space in the sea for me - there were just so many fish1 Joining the group as an individual, Kym and the team made me feel welcome, and engaged from trips to lakes and drinks in swings and buddied on the boat. Most importantly I felt safe, confident and considered in all levels of the trip - particularly in the dive, boat practices, coaching and scuba practices. And of course, the added requirements for a Covid safe trip. THANK YOU Kym for organising such an amazing trip, with great people where i always felt both safe and expanding my skills.

Arno was an overall great dive instructor. He not only made things really easy to understand but made it really fun and gave me a new love for the ocean.

The company got off to a great start with me by their prompt and informative initial response to my inquiry. They were very resourceful bae to assist with lodging and airport transfers as well as the dive logistics. Due to weather, we could only dive 1 of 3 days scheduled, but it was an exciting dive with a. shark swimming in the vicinity for most of the dive. Kyle was a solid guide and his briefing was thorough. On the off day, we had Sam offer an alternate series of activities in the Oribi Gorge area which was an unexpected but quite entertaining surprise, as its a combination game resave, longest biplane in Africa, a humongous gorge and some good local food with astounding views. The owner `Kym clearly runs a tight ship and it shows.
