A MyCapeTown selected video:
Freediving Cape Town – Sandy Cove – Welcome To Cape Town, South Africa
Some background on video. The dives in this video were taken around Feb 2012, and they were my first few dives in Cape Town. I followed a scuba map of the dive area from the surface, periodically diving down to see where I was. I managed for find most of the points of interest through some perseverance.
I found 2 anchors of the “Het Huis te Kraaiestein” wreck.. A wreck 300 years old. Its quiet a trip back in time, and its great to see these traces of South Africa’s early beginnings. I also found the canon of the ship lodged in some kelp, however its not included in this video – expect an updated video in 2013 more footage.
In the video you can also see great schools of fish, and also vast amounts of urchins and soft corals lining the rocks, open sandy bottoms and beautiful swaying kelp forests. It’s a beautiful eco-system. It forms part of ‘Table mountain national park” a marine reserve. This means no fishing of any kind, even spear fishing.
As a result Sandy Cove, and its neighboring dive site ‘Justin’s Caves’ are my personal favorite places to dive. Please enjoy the new 1080p version of this video and feel free to comment or any any questions
And if you haven’t seen in go and watch my ‘Justin’s Caves’ video its even better than this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8gR9pNDGQWI
