A boat dive along the rugged coastline of the Rooi Els Village.

The reef comprises rugged rock outcrops and nooks and crannies that follow the rocky shoreline that is fringed with kelp forests.

What to look out for:

Always be on the look out for sevengill cow sharks and short tailed stingrays, as well as seals that love to zoom around the divers. 

The kelp forest is home to schools of small fish and reef fish such as bull klipfish, speckled klipfish, red roman and shyshark. 

Unusual nudibranch species can be found here, including purple ladies, white edged nudibranchs, candy nudibranchs and arminas.
