A-Frame is a shore dive located five km south of Simon's Town just past Froggy Pond and only sixty meters offshore. You will be diving around a collection of rocks where a small cave can be found with its opening forming the letter A, hence its name. Other stories say that the site is named after an A formed structure that used to stay on shore near the dive site, but nowadays there is not such a landmark anymore. Marine life which can be spotted here are seals, stumpnose, dassie and harmless sharks such as dogfish and pyjama sharks. A strong surge can be present, so take this into account.

One of the more popular dive areas. The entry of diving A Frame is quite easy (although can be very slippery, so watch out when the sea is a bit rough). This is a very nice dive site and great for night dives. You can spot huge variety of colourful plant and sea life here. Soft corals, sponges, sea anemones, loads of types of nudibranchs including blue and orange gas flame nudibranchs, brittle stars and feather stars Many overhangs and nooks and crannies to be investigated. We usually spot many fish such as Red Roman and Hottentot and lots of pyjama and shy sharks. Pipe fish, soles and rays can also found here if you look closely. There is a lovely swim through and a cave in the rock that gives the dive site its name.
