Even though it was off season and we were the only clients XXX made it work and we had one great dive – even though the sharks weren’t that plentiful we had some humback whales right NEXT to the boat – just incredible. We highly recommend this company

Great to hear you enjoyed your experience with Aqua Planet Dive Centre and Charter and thank you for the positive feedback. Customer service and safety are what we strive for, and we are glad that it doesn't go unnoticed. The Northern and Southern Pinnacle of Protea Banks, offer two completely different dives, so it is nice to try do both dive sites depending on the season. We look forward to many more dives with you in the future.

Started with two days diving and I loved very second of it. After the last dive I was sure I had to come back and so I did, two weeks later. Five dives in total and I don't even know the amount of sharks I saw. At one dive we saw four different spieces. Amazing! Was also lucky to dive with dolphins. Hundreds of hammerheads. The music of the whales. Highly recommend it! Coming back for sure.

We have really enjoyed your visits and diving with you! We love diving with divers that appreciate our sharks and you loved them so much, you came back again a few weeks later. We love it when divers get just as excited as us! We look forward to welcoming you back to Aqua Planet Dive Centre and Charter in the future, and showing you more of the wonders Protea Banks has to offer. It was a great pleasure!

From the moment we stepped into the shop we were warmly welcomed and made to feel comfortable and looked after, this was the case in the shop, on the boat and under water; all of the staff were friendly and professional and our dives were well organised and incredibly enjoyable. A well-run Charter goes a long way to ensuring that your diving experience as a whole is a good one and Kym and her awesome team definitely ticked all boxes.

Our sightings on Protea Banks were great as well, over the course of our 4 dives we spotted 5 species of shark, dolphins and countless reef fish. Whales, Dolphins and Flying Fish on the surface, it was absolutely fantastic and definitely something every diver should experience.

I will definitely make a point of recommending Aqua Planet at every chance I get, we had such a great time and we cannot wait to be back!

Thank you!

Deciding after 15 years of diving to do something different, I promptly took to the internet looking for a place to dive in Protea. Kym and the Aqua Planet team did not disappoint from the word go, from booking the trip and dealing with my mismanagement to the dives themselves which they handled every situation with professionalism and expertise. We were even lucky enough to have Kym and Flynn join our group for supper one night for good laughs and epic stories of Protea Banks. This is the Charter of choice if you ever decide to dive Protea. Just check out thier Facebook page for daily dive updates and you'll understand why they are such a good charter.
