Blue Ocean Dive Resort is the premier dive operator on Aliwal Shoal, you are assured of only the best service. Set on beautiful grounds with magnificent views of the Indian Ocean and Umkomaas Golf Course, we are the only operator with a Lodge, fully licensed sea view deck Restaurant and Bar, and Dive Center all conveniently located on the same premises. Built in 1934, this grand old hotel building is a colonial styled icon of Umkomaas and the Kwazulu-Natal South Coast.

As always, we focus on comfort, convenience and value to make your getaway as pleasurable as possible. From the moment we pick you up at the airport until we drop you off again, we want this to be your happy place. A home away from home where you can escape the city, let your hair down and maybe hop on a few dives. We are a diving family ready to blow your mind! You will have a great time when we have our braai evenings (BBQ) sitting around the fire having a relaxing drink, showing off some awesome photography and chatting about the diving that day. We have great fun when we stroll down to the local fish restaurant on the beach for our Prawn/Seafood Dinner. We love what we do, we have as much fun as you do, that is why you will have the time of your life.
