Muck diving is not the first thing that comes to mind when you think about diving in Cape Town, but speak to the local divers and you’ll soon find they all have their favorite spots for hunting out elusive and fascinating critters to observe and photograph. On those marginal days where conditions may not be best for a boat dive on the most popular dive sites it’s often a good Idea to focus on the finer details – you’ll be amazed at what you can find!
The dive sites of Cape Town boast a huge diversity of marine life. While many charters focus on the mega-fauna, there is a wealth of micro-life to explore, that is often missed . Slow your pace right down, stop and observe properly before you decide to move on.
Suddenly you’ll start to see everything you’d usually glance over. Many creatures that may have darted for shelter on your clumsy arrival may start to reappear from their hiding places and may even become curious about your presence. You’ll start to see animals and behaviors you never expected as dramas and interactions play out beneath your nose like a mini soap opera. Muck Diving Cape Town is highly rewarding.
Guided muck dives with Oceans Africa are best conducted one-on-one with an absolute maximum ratio of two divers per dive guide. These dives just don’t work in big groups as the areas explored usually comprise of fine silt or sand that is easily stirred up into a blizzard of low visibility.
