    I had to get my regulators serviced and looked over again after a service was not done correctly by another... Took my set to Dive Team for service and Jan explained to me what they have done and why they had to do so. I can rest assure that my kit is like brand new. Thank you to Jan and everyone at Dive Team, see you soon again

    We went here to buy new masks and snorkels. Their gear is all great quality, the staff are super helpful and helped us find the perfect masks in our price range. Plus loads of tips on how to fit the mask properly and prevent it from misting up. Already had some great dives with the new gear. Thanks Dive team

    The dive with Jan and the staff was simply spectacular. I believe we were lucky since we saw so many seals, which made the dive very enjoyable. It's also worth mentioning Kyle, another member of the team, a very funny guy and always helpful.

    Outstanding experience going on double dive wreck and seals in Hout Bay with Dive Team. Everything was really perfect from supervision to safety and quality of equipment and choice of dive sites. I did not even have to set up my jacket and regulator as they were taking care of everything for me so I could just enjoy the experience. Can only recommend! Diving with the seals was truly unforgettable, will surely dive again with the Dive Team 🤩🤩🤩 be aware that Atlantic Ocean is rough ;)
    Did 6 dives with these guys, everyone was super friendly and professional. The rental equipment was great and well maintained. Had a great experience 5/5.

    Great service, boat and dive plan. Thank you for an awesome day of diving! We will definitely dive with you again if/when we come back to South Africa. However I think my girlfriend would need to bring her drysuit or 7mm next time, as the water temp was abit on the chilly side for 5mm😅 And I also really appreciated that Jan (captain) knew how to carefully handle my large camera rig on the boat. Taking on the dome cap a soon as it got back on the boat. I didnt feel the usual ‘worry’ I do, when handing over my camera rig to boat captains😂
