This was my 4th visit to Coral Divers, running about 5 RIB boats and some 100-200 dives/day for some 30-80 clients. During each visit, I could see how the diving infrastructure deteriorated. The accommodation provided varies from tented accom underneath a roof (each tent 2 beds and a box for stowage), basic bungalows (communal ablution) and bungalows with private bathroom.... More

The best possible place to stay at Sodwana Bay if you are scuba diving!!! Self catering, friendly staff, wonderful chill/braai area. Huts are nice, a bit rustic. Bring additional blankets if weather is cold.

What a beautiful facility. Even though we were not divers we were treated the same. Facilities were excellent - in fact everything needed for self catering and more. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Our tents (fixed, on a platform) were cleaned daily.

Thank you Coral for being professional, helpful and inspiring me to dive more and learn more about oceanic life. From the kitchen ladies, to the security, your reception and your lovely dive team- everyone was just absolutely pivotal in making our 10 days there feel like the holiday we never had!

3 divers and 2 non divers. Amazed at how they run the logistics in this place. There seems to be so many people, all doing their own thing, but the dive planning, the dives, the food, the bar etc all just run efficiently. Everyone is pleasant and helpful; from arriving at security to the Potato Bass out at sea! Wish... More

We were at CD 20 years ago, and wow, they did a lot of upgrades! The 2 cottages we stayed in were good, cleaning every day, open air shower, nice experience. The food was good, nice to also have a private fridge. They even have a pool now for relaxing. There is a big pool in the back for diving... More

This is the third time I've stayed in D-camp. I did not take advantage of the diving. The units have been refurbished since my last visit and are now a lot brighter. My bags failed to arrive (left in Munich) and the staff were very helpful providing extra blankets etc for my first night. I purchased meals in the lodge... More

Coral Divers is set up and run for people wanting to dive - and coral reef diving is the main attraction in the area. It's a professionally run operation that at the same time has a relaxed and laid-back vibe. The place is packed with lovely young people from SA and the rest of the world interning to get their...

We did go with a lot of expectations. We booked everything from home. That was super easy, easy to pay also. We booked 3 nights, incl. buffet breakfast and dinner. Also full gear and 2 dives. Once we arrived we upgrade our room to one with a bathroom on it. We did not get any information, we must find out... 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
