The Coral Gardens make for a great dive especially when the swells are not too big. After a quick swim of about 10 meters, you can descend onto a seabed strewn with round boulders and begin one of the most beautiful dives in False Bay.

You can find huge boulders and rock walls covered with kelp, enormous orange wall sponges, black stink sponges and crumb of bread sponges. At about 18 meters, there are many huge walls covered with orange and pink noble corals, sinuous sea fans, palmate sea fans and multicolored sea fans. Here we find many different types of nudibranchs – the blue and orange gas flame nudibranchs, black nudibranchs and frilled nudibranches to name but a few. The reefs are teeming with elegant feather stars and toothed feather hydroids. Fish life includes galjoen, red roman, twotone fingerfins and many different types of klipvis. We have also spotted red steenbras here as well as smooth houndsharks and puffadder shy sharks. Lots and lots of wicked marine species that will ensure a fantastic dive.
