Miracle Waters is a dive getaway in clean spring water, with a view of the beautiful Magaliesberg mountain range - less than an hour's drive from both Johannesburg and Pretoria!
The large clear diving lake is an old open cast chrome mine surrounded by natural bush and farmlands. The water is so clean because it is naturally replenished by an underwater spring.
Entry is via paved paths for an easy plunge into the warm water.
Sporting five training platforms, it is the perfect place for instruction to beginners as well as for recreational dives at all levels. All training from One Star/Open Water Diver to Instructor Training can be done here.
The compressor room readily supplies air fills if you bring your own cylinders, and can hire out cylinders for those who need them.
The depth of the lake is 33m and the viz, which can reach 10m, is good. All divers can relax, as there are no major hazards or extreme depths. Numerous Black Bass and various species of Kurper are found in the shallows, while a bus, aeroplane, Puma helicopter, several yachts, swimming pool, and various other items (even a computer station!) have also been introduced. Both the bus and aeroplane can safely be entered by appropriately trained divers.
Under the shady trees are lovely picnic areas with tables and braai (BBQ) facilities where old and new friends can reminisce about the day's diving activities.
The overnight camping site and electrified chalets have basic amenities and lovely hot showers. Either bring your own tent or caravan or hire one of the chalets for convenience.
NB!!! Bring: Dive cards!
Please email Lizl BEFORE you join the dives, as she needs to have your detail on book in case of emergencies, firstname.lastname@example.org You can hire kit from Miracle or Reef, if you don't have your own.
Be there at 7h30 for 8h00 with the first dive going down at 8h30.
This is mostly a training venue, but anyone who wants to spend a day diving with buddies and having a good social afterwards is welcome.
