ST HELENA

DIVE THE MOST ISOLATED STUNNING ISLAND IN THE SOUTH ATLANTIC!

 

ST HELENA- BRITAIN'S TROPICAL DIVE DESTINATION

Until today, the Island of St Helena was one of the last large islands on earth that still had to be accessed be sea. NOw the airport is accessed by SA Airlink Airlines once a week. The flight starts in Johannesburg, refuels and Windhoek and continues on to St Helena. St Helena is a British Territory in the south atlantic ocean, and the diving tours in St Helena are absolutely unique. St Helena is not an island with white sandy beaches, she is an outcrop of rock, that was so desolate that the French Emperor Napoleon was exiled here by the British Government. Indeed he died on the rock and is buried here.

While the history of the island is quite enthralling, the dive holiday opportunities in St Helena are even more incredible. Diving in St Helena will often have you see whale sharks, and other large fish. Through our partners on the Island, Sub Tropic Adventures, we now offere everything that St Helena has to offer.  As such we are now operating dive safari tours to this incredible British Outpost. Join us on our inaugural expedition to St Helena or simply book your St Helena Dive Vacation through us.
