“If you want to dive the world class reef of Aliwal Shoal, stay at a fun dive resort, and/or experience the amazing happening of the Sardine Run, Blue Ocean Dive Resort is the place to go with. Nicki and Gary are the most lovely people to run the place and the whole team works in a very professional and welcoming way. I had an amazing Sardine Run experience with them and will definitely come again. Keep up the great work!” wrote Timo D on their TripAdvisor page.

Kimbostoo added; “A great spot to stay at whilst diving when diving Aliwal Shoal. The accommodation was exactly what is required – rooms are simple but very pleasant. The restaurant and terrace are a big bonus-great food and a real chill-out area. The diving aspect was also well organized, dive master and skipper were great. All in all – a professional and very pleasant set up. A great base from which to experience an Aliwal Shoal dive excursion. Highly recommend.”
