I would recommend this company. I booked at short notice and they accommodated a shark feeding dive (with another company) and a ragged tooth dive. They were excellent dives, with great guides. I didn't appreciate that I got 200 bars and everyone else got 230, so I had to go up early, but that could happen everywhere. Friendly people with... More

Aliwal shoal diving is rated as one of the top in the world. We have stayed and dived at many different places here but Agulhas House is a cut above all else. You will find excellent comfortable lodging, great hosts who are very accommodating and a well run dive operation that cater for technical, recreational and rebreather divers. I doubt... More

I just spent a week at Agulhas House in Umkomaas, KZN. My wife and two teens did a dive course which they loved whilst myself and my 9 year old took advantage of the beach and the pool to swim and generally take it easy. The dive course was brilliant- they spent day 1 in the pool, but the rest... More

They accommodated us very well and put my son completely at ease. Sadly wet didn't have time for more dives buy would have loved to. My... More

I've been there last month, one week. They are very careful with customers, always friendly and professional, the rooms are large and clean, and very good food and abundant. You enter as a customer and you leave as a friend.
