Marine conservation volunteer scuba diving in Sodwana Bay

Dive into deep blue

Ultimate freedom, epic adventures, and good vibes

Deep Blue was born on a yacht under the stars of the Indian Ocean. In 2018 a young couple, Marius and Jo sat on the deck of the yacht they worked on and spoke of how they missed their home in Sodwana Bay, how they missed the reefs, the marine life, the tropical forests, and most of all the people. 

This simple conversation grew into ideas and then a full-blown plan to develop an adventure travel organisation based on their passions and values. To provide the most amazing trip for young adults to enjoy freedom, relaxation, adventure, independence and to create memories to last a lifetime in one of South Africa's best-kept secrets.

Sodwana Bay

Sodwana Bay is a small beach town on the east coast of South Africa, just a few kilometers south of Mozambique. The town and the reefs form part of the Isimangaliso Wetlands Park which is South Africa’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

 

This small town feels like an island tucked away forming its own tropical paradise. With its untouched wonder, it's the perfect place to get away from the noise and rush of city life. Fully enveloped in nature, and the close-knit community, you will get to know some of the best, down-to-earth people you'll ever meet and truly feel like a local.

As one of the best dive sites in the world, the coastline boasts  50 km of unspoiled reef and over 1 100 species of fish. The warm brilliant blue Indian Ocean, seemingly never-ending reefs, and diverse marine life make Sodwana the best place to start your diving journey and should definitely be on your diving bucket list!
