I have listed some info regarding the gate process as well as important info. View Here
The above link is info from the Isimangaliso site regarding the gate procedures.
Please be sure to have your dive permits handy for any unexpected checks on the beach. This can be obtained at any post office countrywide. You need only to take your ID and ask for a dive/fishing permit for either 1 year or 3mnths.
Please provide your dive certs when checking in at the shop upon arrival. Without these, you cannot dive. We can however do online verification for those who don’t have the physical card at the shop-not on the beach.
Dive planning is done daily @ 16H00. The following days dives are planned and confirmed at this time. If you are not present at dive planning it will be assumed that you do not want to dive the next day.
All dives booked will be charged for. Cancellations are accepted 24hours or more before the time.
We will keep your BCD-DV(REG)-CYLINDERS and weight belts only during your stay. Please be sure to mark these personal items very clearly to avoid mix up. The staff will wash your gear for you daily after dives and we will bring it to the beach on your dive days. Note that the company and staff will NOT be liable for any loss or damage of your personal gear whatsoever if you choose to leave it with us for transport back and forth to the beach.
Settling your bills
You will be asked for a small deposit when booking your dive packages. All dive bills MUST be settled at the shop or via EFT BEFORE leaving Sodwana Bay. No exceptions.
For those who are doing their courses with us this season, be sure to make your 50% deposits to upload the manuals for preparation studies. This will ensure LESS classroom time and more diving! Let us know.
There is little doubt that diving and dive charters in Sodwana Bay are our core business. We pride ourselves as being world class scuba diving instructors and take pride in our operation as being professional and safe as possible. We decree that sport scuba diving contributes to marine habitation in its entirety, constantly being vigilant and aware that we are visitors in the ocean & that we are privileged to be there and share the space with all forms of marine inhabitants.
