Our resort caters to divers giving a homely feel from the minute you walk in. Mi casa es su casa! Our accommodation is comfortable with a rustic feel so you know you're by the sea and on holiday. Having the bar restaurant and dive centre on one premises means you get to roll out of bed and into your wetsuit with a vibey chill area after diving. You can hide your car keys from yourself for the duration of your stay and mingle with our friendly staff and fellow divers.

Although we are not divers we made Blue OceanDive Resort our go to place for meals while in Umkomaas, and they made us feel like part of the family. Nothing was disappointing, the food was great, From Pizza's to Breakfasts, Burgers and Steaks. You have to try their waffles too. We have been back at least every day since we arrived in town, sometimes twice. Jabu and Terrance and the rest of the crew are all very welcoming and friendly. Today we will go back again, sadly for the last time before we leave to head home. Breakfasts here are relaxing and the place has a calm feeling about it in the mornings and a lively vibe in the afternoons and evenings. We can't recommend the place enough.

We were staying at a beach house nearby and discovered this cool, chilled out thatch roof bar deck to be a great spot for dinner after the beach. Great food, great vibes, cold beer, and friendly service.

best thing about this place is the staff, they really take you in and make sure your are having a great time, under and above water! -the hotel itself is very good, clean and comfortable. -the diving center is very good. always making sure you rest and they do all the gearing up and logistics which is different than to what we have in Egypt so they did pamper us. always supplying towels on the way back after dives to shower :) -the bar and restaurant is very good! best pizza every and the steaks was more than good too. they even allowed us to smoke our own Hookah there :D :D - the diving itself is out of this world in Aliwal, my first time to experience true shark diving. Donny is the man for this job, thanks bro. Thank you Gary and all your lovely team :D to many more diving

Although it is a diving resort, I can testify to the fact that they have the most delicious pizza's. You write down the ingredients, and it is being served!! People are very nice and sportive, and you feel at home immediately!

We didn’t dive with Blue Ocean however we had the privilege of diving with one of their dive masters Mike (whom I think acts as a freelance DM when required). He was excellent. He was so enthusiastic and knowledgable about the ocean and marine life, he gave great dive briefings and was determined to give us the best experience on our dives. For this reason we will dive with Blue Ocean if we return to Umkomaas in the future. As a side, we ate in Blue Ocean’s restaurant each night we were in Umkomaas and the food and beer were excellent. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and the staff were really friendly and welcoming.
