Pisces Diving Charter
Pisces Dive Charter is an owner operated dive school and charter operating full-time in Sodwana Bay since 1994 but both Louis and Melanie have lived and dived in Sodwana Bay since the 1980’s. Due to the charter being owner managed and run (from picking you up in the beach parking area and running the beach operation to escorting you on your dives), professional service of highest quality is guaranteed with safety as our most important priority.
Louis, Melanie and their team are passionate about the ocean and the area and our aim is that each client departs for home after a visit having learnt something new about our ocean and the wonders within it as well as a love for the area we operate in – where else in the world can you dive in the morning and see the Big 5 or view some amazing Lake systems in the afternoon? We cater for all levels of divers ranging from novices, dive schools, family groups, technical divers and photographers to the discerning casual diver. Our new boat, IMPI is specially modified and offers superb comfort and space for technical and photographic groups.
Sodwana Bay is situated in Zululand, the place of the people of the heavens. Situated on the east coast of Southern Africa, it forms the northern portion of KwaZulu-Natal, one of the nine provinces of South Africa. This stretch of the African continent is a land of diversely exquisite beauty. The coastline stretches some three hundred and fifty kilometers from the mouth of the mighty Tugela River in the south to the Mozambique border in the north. The golden eastern shores are caressed by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean and include endless unspoilt beaches and coastal conservation areas, and incorporate the largest estuarine system in Southern Africa. Sodwana Bay is incorporated in the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, which is South Africa's third largest park. The rich resource endowment of the IWP was recognized when the St Lucia Wetlands became South Africa's first inscription on the World Heritage List.
More recently Sodwana Bay has become internationally recognized with the discovery of Coelacanth colonies, which were thought to be extinct. The Coelacanth, a prehistoric fish, were found during an expedition by a group of technical divers headed by Pieter Venter and Pieter Timm.
