Would I use the company again? No When we undertook the snorkelling with seals, the focus was on getting the cash rather than safety. On the day we undertook snorkelling, the sea swell was beyond that of what was safe and shouldn't haven’t take place There was no safely brief undertaken and the instructor spent most of the time in...

I just recently completed my PADI open water at Pisces, and had a completely brilliant experience. My instructor, Davi, was awesome and explained everything clearly. When it came to revising for the theory I realised I knew almost all of it already from Davi's lessons in the pool. He also has a great knowledge of the dives sites, marine life,... More

This was one of 2 boats hired to take us out to watch albatrosses and other seabirds south of Cape Point. They had to go much further than expected to catch up with the trawlers in order to see the main feeding flocks but nothing was too much trouble. They were booked through Cape Boat Charters which I wholeheartedly recommend.

Great trip - The guys at Pisces were very accommodating, doing their absolute best to make sure I got as much out of my time diving in SA as possible! Friendly and knowledgeable bunch. completed my Nitrox course with Ryan even taking time to teach tables - which he didn't have to do - but was greatly appreciated by me.

I stacked four dives in two days to make the most of my time here and Pisces made it absolutely worth it: beautiful sites and friendly service. Jacqui was very helpful in selecting the sites and all the other staff members were also full of interesting information about the area and the sea life. Absolutely worth it, highly recommended.

While in Cape Town for work, I contacted Jacqui at Pisces Divers to find out about the possibilities for diving. She arranged two days of gorgeous boat diving for me, as well as a very convenient car transfer down to Simon's Town from a local tour company. All of the gear rental was included (very handy while traveling) and everything... More
