GROOT BANK

Average Depth :  20 metres

Max. Depth :  25 metres

Features :  The pinnacles, large amphitheatres and caves and tunnels make for very exciting diving. Expect to see many varieties of gamefish; steenbras, musselcracker, Romans and the beautiful parrotfish being one of them. Ragged tooth sharks are also pretty common and a highlight to any dive.

SHALLOW BLINDERS

Average Depth : 8 metres 

Max. Depth : 9 metres

Features : Marine growth is abundant here, and the pinnacle and gullies make for interesting diving.  Once again, ragged tooth sharks may be spotted!

DEEP BLINDERS

Max. Depth : 18 metres

Features : Beautiful drop offs and sandy areas nearly always promising a glimpse of bull rays or stingrays. The shallowest part of the reef is covered in redbait pods.

DOLPHIN COLUMN

Average Depth : 12 metres

Max. Depth : 18 metres

Features : Interesting diving around the pinnacle and gullies, and as aptly named, dolphins can be spotted here too. Raggies can also be seen here.

REDBAIT REEF

JACOB'S POINT

Average Depth : 12 metres

Max. Depth : 16 metres

Features : Sea fans, Sponges, coral, urchins and very tame fish including the black parrotfish and a highlighted feature are the dolphins that are often spotted. This dive site is definitely one of the best sites to dive in Plett. A very colorful dive and abundant marine life.

THE MFV ATHINA

Average Depth : 7 metres

Max. Depth : 9 metres

Features : The wreck of the Greek trawler, the MFV Athina, went ashore in 1967 and is actually visible from the Robberg Nature Reserve lookout point when visibility is good.  The bottom is sandy and it is an interesting dive.

WHALE ROCK

Average Depth : 24 metres

Max. Depth : 30 metres

Features :  Normally a difficult site to dive as water conditions are not often favorable, but when it is calm, Ragged tooth sharks are abundant along with many soft corals, sea fans and sponges. Marine life is very abundant here.

VOORSTRAAT

Max. Depth : 18 metres

Features :  Fantastic caves for exploration and a lot of color.
