Dive with the Dream Team fills your life!
When Ocean Dreamers was first registered in 1999, we never expected the continued growth and loyal support of our diver family, many of whom have been with us since we originally started.
Based in Elarduspark, Pretoria, we pride ourselves on the high standard of hassle-free diving we provide to all our customers, while safety is of the utmost importance and no compromises are made as far as diving safety is concerned.
Although Ocean Dreamers is affiliated with NAUI (National Association of Underwater Instructors) and the only NAUI ProEducator Facility in South Africa, NAUI Instructor #22707, Michael Jacobs is also a PADI Master Scuba Diver and Emergency First Response Instructor #644827 and DAN (Divers Alert Network) Instructor #DANM 262662.
Sonja is the very capable land based assistant that looks after all the logistics as well as the wellbeing of all our customers.
When going on diving excursions, we include not only divers, but also their families into the fun filled atmosphere. To this end we go on snorkel excursions, 4x4 driving excursions and we strive to visit strange, new and exotic destinations close to the dive site to experience more than just the diving.
Combining NAUI’s motto “Dive Safety Through Education” and PADI’s motto “The Way the World Learns to Dive”, we limit our students number to the absolute minimum to ensure personal attention and maximise safety and student enjoyment. This brings us to our own motto: “Dive with the Dream Team.”
At Ocean Dreamers, we offer programs to fit even the most hectic schedules. We have drawn over years of experience to develop SCUBA programs that are tailored to even the most demanding lifestyles. Therefore classes are only available over weekends.

Some of the feedback from our students and divers:
"Ek wil net weer eens vir julle baie dankie sê vir die geleenheid wat julle my gebied het om saam met julle Mosambiek toe te gaan. Dit was 'n onvergeetlike ervaring gewees." - PT (Non-Diver)
"Please let me know when you go diving again, as we want to join you again as I have never felt so safe in diving with anyone. Not once have you skipped or given half a dive briefing." - JJ (Social Diver in Mozambique)
"I will surely recommend your training with a clear conscience to anyone." - AdW (Advanced Scuba Diver Student)
"I did not think that the reality could be so different from what you taught us in the course. I mean, not even in my wildest dreams did I think that my rescue diver could be the one who has a problem! All my careful planning was thrown to the wolves. Thank you for really trying to bring all the possibilities of a rescue to our attention." - RB (Rescue Diver Student - Since completed Divemaster)
"It sure was nice diving with you. We must really do it more often." - LW (Social Diver at Bass Lake)
"I thought I knew a lot about diving until I did my Advanced course with you. Thank you for putting a lot of things in perspective for me". - RB (Advanced Scuba Diver Student - Since completed Divemaster)
"I am doing this course through peer pressure and do not even think of buying my own equipment." - JA (Then Scuba Diver Student, now Master Scuba Diver)
