About Us

Our History

When, in 1998 Sodwana Dive Retreat (SDR) moved out of the Park to run exclusively out of the Sodwana Bay Lodge we became Sodwana Bay Lodge Scuba Centre, fondly known as Scuba Centre.

We encompass the Sodwana School of Diving, which started as a NAUI facility in 1993 and evolved into a PADI Dive Centre 1996. We grew and improved further until, in 1999 we became the first PADI 5 Star IDC Centre in Sodwana.

We bring to you, ever growing years of experience in Sodwana.

Greg de Valle is the General Manager and has been since 1999. An experienced instructor, skipper and dive leader, Greg is renowned for his underwater photography and vast knowledge of the marine world.
