    an absolutely amazing experience!! the team is so professional and relaxed and the trip to get to the location at sea itself is very exciting. the pictures and video are so cool and the sharks are a fantastic sight!! this is definitely something you don't want to miss out on if you're in the South Coast. 10/10 experience <33

    My return trip to Aliwal Shoal, South Africa l was very happy chosing ScubaXcursion.
    A very nicely setup and organized scuba shop with all the equipment l needed including Nitrox and 15 L steel tanks.
    No extras/surprises on my final bill.
    I prefer the smaller dive group trips and certainly that was the case.
    If l return the Aliwal Shoal l certainly will chose ScubaXcursion.
    And of course there were lots of Ragged Tooth Sharks again this year.
    Thank

    It was just amazing! More then 20 oceanic black tips, the water is super warm too! The crew made the difference, everyone were super nice and friendly, Odette gaves us a nice lesson about sharks and marine life always with great humor and kindness she even helped us to book other tours and booking hotels... Its SUPER SAFE it’s definitely something that everyone should do it!

    Before I start this review just to mention Durban had just been battered by the worst storm it had seen in some time. We used Calypso for our advance open water course. We arrived on the first day and were warmly welcomed by our instructor and she explained all the dives we would be doing. We started off by diving in the Aquarium fish tank which had some nice sharks in as well; this was a great way to start the dives as we got to see loads of different fish in super clear water.

    Unfortunately that was the best visibility we got in the next 3 days, because of the storm the visibility on the other dives we did was only 1/2m so we had to cancel some dives and some days of diving as well which was very disappointing but the dive team there were very helpful and made sure we got enough dives in to complete our course. I am sure that since diving in those conditions I am confident i would be able to dive in any conditions.

    We did have one great dive out at coopers wreck, the sea was a beautiful blue and the visibility was 10m+, the current was super strong but this just made the dive even better. Our dive instructor accidently knelt on a ray which was buried in the sad this was the highlight of the whole diving trip.

    In summary I would highly recommend calypso to all my friends as they were super friendly and helpful; we even had lunch with them a few days as well. I would recommend going diving with them as we felt safe the whole time and had a great time with them.

    Thank you Calypso for getting us through our course
