14th – 17th June – Aliwal Shoal and Southern Beauties
Dive reports from Aliwal confirm that the reef has been taken over by the presence of the Ragged Tooth Sharks, they even had a whale shark last week. Further south there has been great reports of pockets of sardines and the charters are already in full action on the Sardine Runs. We will take advantage of the public holiday and dive Aliwal and visit the “Southern Beauties”. This reef system is situated south of the Shoal and boasts some of the most beautiful reefs which are not often dived. Most of these reefs are a bit deeper and perfect for a Nitrox dive and who knows maybe a sardine ball with some action. I have secured a beautiful guesthouse and we have the Premier hotel to use for accommodation. Please let me know if you wish to join us.

July School Holidays
Escape the cold Gauteng and bring the kids to the beach in Ponta Malongane. Days are warm, diving is amazing.

August Long weekend 8th – 11th August
Where better to celebrate National Woman’s Day than beautiful Ponta Malongane “where heaven meets earth”. Celebrate the woman in your life and treat her to a weekend at Ponta Malongane.

Red Sea Trips 2024
Southern Beauties – 28th June – 7th July

“Sharky” Ahmed Mamdouh will be hosting this amazing safari. He is the Shark Project Ambassador in Egypt, owner of Legacy Liveaboard, founder of Decodivers. A few of Prestige guests had the honour of meeting and diving with him in 2021. We will always remember the amazing presentation he did for us on sharks. This trip will be amazing, diving the magnificent walls, searching for the hammerheads and hopefully blessed again with whale sharks and mantas. The safari will include diving the beautiful Fury Shoal.

Northern Safari Wrecks and Reef – 5th July – 14th July
These two trips will allow you to do a back to back trip, saving money on flights and spending 2 weeks in paradise.
For some of us not so lucky to spend two weeks in Egypt, this safari will showcase the magnificent wrecks and reefs the Red Sea has to offer. The northern sites are known as “The Shipwreck Graveyard”. Abu Nuhas will offer you three amazing wreck dives in one day and get you ready for the famous Thistlegorm wreck. The North also offers stunning reefs and the famous Thomas Canyon on their itinerary.

Open Water courses can be done through winter with the use of the indoor pool facility. We are able to do mid week or weekend courses.
First Aid Course – Whether you need to do the course or an update, this is a great time to get it done. Please let me know who would be keen so I can set a course schedule.
Deep, Nitrox ,Wreck or Shark Specialties can be completed on our weekend at Aliwal Shoal. Purchasing the SSI Specialty bundle can save you some money especially if you complete the dives at Aliwal, one dive could count towards at least 3 specialties, example: a dive to the Produce Wreck can count as a deep, wreck, nitrox and shark dive, so continue your dive education and join us.
Rescue Course - Winter is ideal to get all the theory done so by the time Spring arrives only pool and Bass Lake dives stand in your way to becoming a Rescue diver.

Lastly, anyone keen to join Prestige Dive School in Ponta Malongane for the December holidays, the resort is almost fully booked. Please make contact with me so I can send a request through to the booking office to be notified of any cancellations. I have a few campsites, chalets and a rondavel available for certain dates. In the meantime it would be great to see you all soon, we will get our Enviro Evenings up and running soon and will keep you posted on the dates. Keep warm and safe this winter and look forward to hearing from you all.
