Algoa Bay in Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape, is home to some fantastic dive sites, one of them being Postmanís Reef. This 4-8 meter dive lies close to the slipway near to Happy Valley.
To find the dive sight, look out for the lamp posts on the bridge, there are pillars on the middle of the slipway and this is where you will get onto the reef. After Westerly winds the surf is gentle and makes entering the water here easier.
Once on the reef you will be amazed at the stunning sea life you will find. The variety of marine creatures increases the further you go out. Yellow Bellied Rock cod ban be spotted hiding amongst the rocks as well as Barbels.
Sea fans and soft corals smother the rocks and are surrounded by many other intriguing creatures. An underwater camera would be a great idea to take with to capture the beauty of this magnificent reef.
