“High quality scuba training and diving”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

One of P.E. oldest and well run operation. Very friendly staff and excellent prices. Leslie will go the extra mile to make your dive experience most memorable. Good range of equipment to buy or hire at reasonable prices. Heated pool for training and good clean change rooms. Extensive knowledge of all best dive sites. High standard of safety is obvious.

“Extremely helpful staff, well stocked shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

A friend of mine had ordered a wetsuit from Ocean Divers International for the dive trip we had planned in Pt Elizabeth, so from the airport we took a 3 minute cab to the shop. Once there we found a fully stocked shop where we also bought snorkels, masks, hooded vests, dive socks, dive boots etc to fill all the gaps in our divebags. The staff were very, very helpful and made us feel so welcome. Lesley, the owner, heard us saying that we had no accommodation that night, and no car, so he put all our bags in his store room, asked one of his staff to drive us to a nearby cafe where we could get lunch, had someone else drive us back to the shop, and in the meantime sorted out accommodation at a reasonably priced guesthouse not far away.
We did not dive with ODI because our trip was already planned with another operator, and Lesley knew this from the outset so his kindness was not in aid of boosting business. But if the diving is run as well as the shop is then I would not hesitate to use them in the future.
If you are a diver, or keen to be, and find yourself in Pt Elizabeth not sure where to go, give them a call or just turn up as we did and for sure you will find yourself quickly sorted out!
