Scuba diving is a great activity for families that enjoy being in the outdoors. ScubaCo Diving & Travel in Umkomaas, KwaZulu Natal South Coast, also happens to be among the best scuba diving companies out there.

On their adventures, you can interact with the Aliwal Shoal’s dolphins, whales, and sharks in their natural environment or experience the beauty of the underwater world. Scuba diving also happens to be a great social distancing inspired holiday activity.

You will also find that the ScubaCo Diving & Travel team pride themselves on creating safe and fun adventures for families. They have over 20 years’ experience in the scuba diving industry and offer all scuba diving courses.

Never dived before? You can also learn to dive with them! The Try Dive experience is perfect for those that are not sure if they would like to do a full course but rather experience the underwater world. It is great for a weekend activity for the whole family starting from 10years and older. For the younger kids in the family nothing beats the Bubblemaker program. Bubblemaker is really as fun as it sounds – it is a chance for children to blow bubbles by scuba diving. Children who are at least 8 years old can use scuba gear to breathe underwater and swim around in shallow water. Have a party or celebrate a birthday by throwing a memorable, exciting Bubblemaker event with friends and Family at ScubaCo Diving & Travel

ScubaCo Diving & Travel offers Open Water Courses for those 10 years and older, family courses can be customised to cater to the needs of the family and can take place over a few weekends if needed.  Self-study in advance at home is required and then 4 days of training at ScubaCo’s dive centre located in Umkomaas, 45 min from Durban. This is a wonderful experience for kids and a great way to keep them busy over the holidays they will learn so much and have once in a lifetime experiences on the Aliwal Shoal.

Should you and your children have a love for sharks they offer the Shark Watch & Shark Snorkeling package, with these you are able to interact with the sharks with one of their shark specialist  who will be in the water close to you. Should you prefer to stay on the boat you are able to view these majestic animals from the comfort of the boat, as they do come super close.

All of these activities are great for combinations for birthday parties; speak to Scubaco about assisting with planning your next party. All these activities combined with their 4-Star accommodation at 32 on Harvey. Your weekend will be complete.
