ABOUT US

OUR STORY

Deep Blue was established in 2018 by Marius van Jaarsveld and Joanne Dilnot, a young couple living in Sodwana.

 

After a trip to Seychelles to work on the yachts they realised they missed the real island lifestyle and the incredible reefs in Sodwana. Both having experience in the diving industry and Marine Conservation volunteering, they set out on a mission to create their dream project. They wanted more people to experience this paradise they called home and create a passion for the ocean they love so much.

OUR PARADISE - SODWANA BAY

Sodwana Bay which means ‘little one on its own’ in Zulu, is a small rural town on the east coast of South Africa. It is found just outside the Isimangaliso Wetlands Park which is South Africa’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

This coastline has the Southern most coral reefs in South Africa with 50 km of unspoiled reef. There are over 1 100 species of fish that are found in Sodwana Bay waters, including the famous coelacanth that was once thought to be extinct. 

This small town has so many incredible activities to keep travelers busy during their stay. 

This is definitely an incredible little diving town to visit and explore.
