"Find the Treasures of the Underwater World"
?Along the East Coast of South Africa, just south of Durban lies a subtropical stretch of coastline known as the KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) South Coast.

Visitors to the coast are greeted by warm, welcoming waters of the Indian Ocean and fine stretches of sandy beach set against a backdrop of rolling sugar cane hills interspersed with islands of indigenous bush.

Umkomaas, a small town about 45km to the south of Durban, forms part of this magnificent coastline. Renowned for the spectacular dive opportunities created by Aliwal Shoal - a large sandstone reef lying 5km out to sea – the town is home to the well-known Buddy Scuba Diving Adventures – TDI/SDI/SSI dive school, dive charter and holiday guesthouse “Buddy’s Place”.
