Divetek was opened in 1984 by owner and head instructor David Cohen. David has been in the industry for over 38 years, and is a NAUI, SSI, SAUU, PADI, TDI, and Divetek qualified instructor.
We are the largest and most well stocked diving shop in Africa, and pride ourselves in the extremely high level and variety of dive training that we offer.
Divetek has multiple highly qualified instructors, and are able to teach students all the way from beginner to instructor level.
Each and every one of our instructors has gone through a vigorous training schedule themselves, and are therefore able to provide the highest quality of training. Our lectures and pool sessions are taught with in-depth knowledge, care, professionalism and of course with loads of enthusiasm. These courses need to be both informative and fun for each and every one of our students.
We offer NAUI courses, from the entry-level “learn to dive courses” all the way up to NAUI Master Diver, Divemaster and Instructor.
All of our courses have been written and revised to focus on South African diving conditions. They follow all NAUI standards with the addition of being made more specific to our diving conditions in this country.
We also provide more technical courses such as cylinder technician, regulator and BC technician, compressor operator, and technical diving courses.
Divetek prides itself on our thorough training standards. We make sure that every student we qualify are confident and safe divers who are able to dive the more rough conditions that South African waters offer, and LOVE it!
