You are welcomed at the airport and transported to the 5 star Saltycrax Backpackers in Blouberg.

DAY 2 – 3:
After a good night’s sleep and filling up on breakfast, it’s time to learn how to scuba dive. Your friendly local guide will give you a brief lesson on using Cape Town’s public transport and will accompany you to the nearest bus terminal that will get you to the diving school where you will have formal lectures as well as tutorials on video. In the afternoons you will practice what you have learnt in the only custom-made heated dive pool in Cape Town.

DAY 4:
After two days of studying it’s time to test what you have learnt. Before the final exam, you will have your first sea dive on which qualified instructors will assist you. It is important to note that the course is built on the concept of performance-based learning and is not time-based.
Students are not forced to progress according to the clock. Instead, they are allowed to progress at their own pace until they demonstrate their water skills with comfort and confidence.

DAY 5:
You can spend the day relaxing on the beach or go on an adventure like shark-cage diving, skydiving or sandboarding (Own expense). For other options on what you can do ask your friendly Saltycrax Staff member.
After your free day you will arrive back at the backpackers where you can share your stories from the past few days over a drink with the other guests. If you want to, venture off to explore Bloubergs nightlife and abundance of quality restaurants overlooking the ocean.

DAY 6:
Fill up on breakfast and go down to the beachfront to grasp your last views of Table Mountain. Check out or extend your adventure with us and book some extra nights.
