On submerging below the surface, the world that the underwater swimmer sees is one of fascination, strange, almost silent. The great pools of the Duikerfontein above Sanddrif are inhabited by innumerable creatures, some large, some small, and some so minute that the human eye cannot see them.

Explore the silent underwater world as the professional divers do using airlines, scuba equipment or aqualungs. After instruction by experts, follow an underwater trail and see if you can find the 'treasure' on the bottom.

Although diving is strenuous, anyone who can swim reasonably well and who is physically fit can take part. Strict safety precautions will be enforced at all times.
