Just check please. the ceiling in our cabin was sagging in the middle as well as on the side of the cabin or the... More

The diving is excellent, the corals are beautiful and the transport to the beach well organised. The dive times are pretty short (45-50 minutes) The equipment however is not in very good condition. The BCD yes, but the rest not. And since you're then standing on the beach far away from the offices it is a hassle to exchange. The... More

First time diving with a company as large as this but they are very well organised, all of the staff were very friendly and helpful, from the dive meetings to getting gear sorted from the lodge to the beach was all very efficient. The diving was AMAZING, some of the most beautiful natural things I have ever seen, will hopefully... More

Coral Divers had a lovely and friendly staff. We had a good service level throughout our time there. However, our cabin was quite mucky with ghekko droppings and insects all over it. After a long day of training all you want to do is sleep so this didn't seem to impact us too much. But it was unfortunate and I... More

Very well organised and prompt service, friendly staff and great diving. Tented camp very clean, would have been great to have a plug point but I understand the reason behind no plug point. Very safe Overall great venue and will be returning in the future.

The whole experience at Coral Divers is one of excellence and perfection. By far the best in the business at Sodwana - they could hold their own with any other dive charter in the world. I always love it!

Everything was excellent at Coral, except for the fact that we were forced to book 1 dive a day for the duration of our stay. You never know what the weather is going to be like so we have in the past had days were diving was not possible. Luckily the weather was perfect this time however I ended up... More

We stayed in a cabin. It is the most expensive option but you can see the difference. Cozy accomodation, surrounded by nice trees and funny animals (be careful with the monkeys). The restaurant serve good meals. There are lots of diving instructors, always helpful and professional. My wife is not a diver but she enjoyed a lot taking pictures. They... More

Raymond Dean was our assigned instructor and we were so impressed with how patiently and thoroughly he delivered the course. He was incredibly attentive underwater and we felt like we were in capable hands. Ray's knowledge of the marine life we encountered was vast and his... More
