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

My boyfriend and I recently did our Advanced Open Water qualification with Coral Divers. 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

Still the most affordable, comfortable accommodation one can get, the safari tents with self catering option at Coral Divers offer a cheap solution for those scuba enthusiasts who would rather spend that extra Rand on diving rather than luxury. Coral Divers do however cater for a wide variety of clients, from the two-man safari tents to family en-suite cabins. The... More

I love the peace and quite of the location being in the middle of the bush and inside the nature reserve.

Coral Divers is rustic and tropical, peaceful and convenient. I love the fact that they make life so easy for divers. Shuttles to and from the beach, beach guys to help carry your gear, efficient dive admin and schedules, and the most relaxing time at the resort. There's a restuarant or you can take your own food - a bar.... More
