My family and I stayed at Rocktail Camp, and it was fantastic that Mokarran is immediately adjacent. Staff from the dive center come to your dinner table to book the "ocean adventure" or diving excursions for the next day--very convenient. My family did the ocean adventure where you take a boat to see dolphins or whales and then head back... More

We had an amazing week staying at Rocktail and diving with Mokarran on the north coast of Kwazulu Natal South Africa. Super professional team - they looked after us really well, safety conscious, very friendly and really made effort to point out lots of critters. They even served us breakfast on the dune overlooking the empty beach and magnificent sea... More

Had the best 4 dives with Mokarran. Great dive centre in a most unique location. Great eye for detail, very professional instructor and dive master, excellent skipper. Amazing underwater fauna and flora. Dived with humpback whales, sharks and saw so much more. Highly recommended. Go in August when the whales migrate.

Mokarran staff and dive experience not only compares, but in mist instances it is far superior to anything found anywhere else in the world. Competent friendly dive masters, brilliant skippers and well maintained equipment. The reefs are awesome and secluded.

We did two dives with Ondine and Darryl during our stay at Rocktail Camp. The dive center is great – it is being run very professionally and equipment is in great condition. Transport from camp to boat was well organised with a 4x4 (around 10 mins). Dive groups were always small (max. we had was 5 divers and a guide).... More

a wonderful diving experience in one of South Africa's most pristine and unspoilt reefs. The whole team, Clive, Michelle, Darryl and Sam were wonderful. The refs are in excellent condition mainly due to the fact that this is exclusive diving at its best. It is very well worth the experience and we can't wait to come back.

I was so impressed with the diving at Rock Tail Bay. The team at Mokarran dive centre were incredibly friendly helpful and enthusiastic. Really professionally run and all divers were looked after and considered. As I was the only freediver on the boat I was unsure how it was going to all happen but Clive was so great as a... More

We have dived with the Mokarran team at Rocktail Bay a couple of time in the past. They usually do a 2 tank morning dive, with a brunch on shore between the 2 dives. Their skippers are very competent and considerate. They are the only dive operation in the area and therefore there aren't any other boats racing around above... More
