These are some of the photos taken and dive logs written mostly by myself or Jacques Alberts who operated in Jeffreys Bay under the African Waters Scuba brand for many years. We include these old photos and stories here, so that you can get an idea of what it looks like underwater in our area.

Nudi GillsGoing where few divers has gone before...

With a couple of days left of 2011, Jeffreys Bay pulled out the most incredible holiday weather with prevailing calms seas, low winds and warm water. African Waters Scuba has been doing so many launches, that we struggle to keep track of it all. (We do have the indemnity forms and dive register for each dive so can check it if we need to!) The viz has been absolutaly incredible several days in a row.

Another perfect dive was done on Rock Cod reef on Saturday morning. It was spring tide and the sea was a little choppy with some looming cloud cover, but we were greeted with a total opposite scenario once the dive started. A nice sized leopard cat shark was spotted as well as a shy shark and a large ray.

On Thursday we went a bit further out to sea and dived Rock Cod Reef. Water temp on the reef was 19 deg and we had about 8m viz. Some Ray's were spotted and there was talk of some raggies being sited as well. The anemone seem to be active again and feeding on the coral.

Wednesday 21 Dec 2011 we decided to do a shore entry at Paradys Strand. The tide was still going out and after the strong easterly viz was reduced to about 1m. After making their way safely through the surf the divers were all exited about the dive but were not so impressed after the swim out to the reef.

DSCF2830On Tuesday 20 Dec 2011 we dived at Jagged Edge Reef. A bunch of new faces on the boat as almost every day. A big flat worm was spotted and once again every one was impressed with our unspoilt reefs.

What a surprise it was to find a Spider on Jagged Edge reef. Thanks to Koos who pointed it out and also found another smaller one. We are so lucky to dive unspoilt reefs with so many creatures on them. After more than 2 years of diving on the same reefs new things are still found on almost every dive.

On both days we dived Discovery Channel due to almost no swell, warm water and great viz. Heidi and Jaco who joined us on their discover scuba dive saw a nice 2,5m raggie, loads of fish life, nudi's, anenomy etc just to name a few things. A school of Jutt Jaw fish also joined in the fun and to see such a big school was very uncommon.

On 15 December we started the Holiday season off with a couple of PADI DSD's. Nice warm water in the pool at Steve's place who had forgotten that he had left the hose in the pool and filled it to the brim. Heidi and Jaco from JBay, Collett from Natal and Estel from Spain enjoyed their experience and joined us on a dive in the Ocean the following day. Here are some pics....
