We stayed at Coral Divers for a mini-break during a week. Even midweek, the vibe was amazing. The lodge has a main area where the bar, restaurant, reception, pool and diving gear room are located. This is where the main chilling area is and there is always great music playing. The lodge also offers various different diving courses on the... More

We had a very pleasant surprise upon arrival. In the back of my head I always thought that any dive school would be small with a small tent camp. However, this blew my mind. They have 24 hour Employees, very professional staff and takes out more than 350 people to the open sea per day. I'm very impressed!

Father and son first joint visit to Sodwana . We enjoyed every moment of this trip, especially the trips down to the beach with the tractor , the dives as buddies and the relaxed athmosphere in the evenings at the braai area. Friendly and well trained staff. Rest of the family will certainly join us next time.

I had a fantastic stay at Coral Divers! All the staff and dive instructors are so friendly and welcoming. The facilities are great - the outside boma area is lovely for braai'ing. It is kept very clean, however the communal fridges are a bit grubby. I went on my own, but ended up making so many new friends with other... More

We loved our trip to Coral divers. The staff are all friendly and willing to assist. We used their babysitting service while we dived and my kids loved the lady. We used the buffet breakfast and dinner options often and were never disappointed. We even ordered off the menu, my family loved the pizza's. Not to mention the milkshakes -... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Coral Divers is a PADI 5 star Gold Palm IDC/CDC Centre situated in Sodwana Bay, South Africa. We are proud to be able to provide all levels of PADI scuba instruction from Bubble Maker to Instructor Development Courses as well as accommodation and dive charters. Lying within the boundaries of the Isimangaliso Wetland Park, Sodwana Bay provides the travelling diver with a vast array of unspoilt coral reefs populated with a huge diversity of Indo-Pacific fish & invertebrates. Apart from the great diving & beautiful coral reefs, the area offers fun and excitement for the non-diver too. From quad bike riding, kiteboarding and paintballing to day trips to Makhasa Game Reserve for Rhino or Buffalo tracking on foot, you're sure to find something that appeals to you, your friends and/or family. Coral Divers offers you a very comfortable diving holiday experience while retaining the rustic appeal of an out-of-the-way bush camp. The area is covered with dense coastal forest offering exquisite scenery, bird watching, and a number of small mammals including Bush Babies, Genets, Duiker and Striped Mongoose. Sodwana is accessible by car, however we can arrange transfers from Hluhluwe - Bushlands (The BazBus drop off point) should you not have your own vehicle. Petrol & Diesel are available from the petrol station in the National Park, and there is a small supermarket which can provide you with essentials such as food, drink and sun block. There are a couple of restaurants both within and outside of the Park, as well as our local night club, 'Maak 'n Jol', where you can dance the night away. Sodwana is also within driving distance of a number of amazing game reserves including Makhasa Game Reserve, Mkhuze Game Reserve, Phinda Game Reserve & the Hluhluwe Mfolozi Park. We invite you to take a look through our site to find out a little more about Coral Divers - Sodwana Bay and the diving. ... more   less
