Oswaldo's Drop Off is only accessible to shore divers staying at Breezes hotel. However, the best part of the reef is accessible from the public beach right next door - Pierbaai, Marie Pampoen. The prevailing current makes this shore entry a better option for diving Pierbaai Reef (of which Oswaldo's is a small part) and the Car Pile. Pierbaai Reef is gorgeous, filled with marine life, very easy shore entry and about a 1 minute swim out. There's also an on-site dive shop for directions and tips on what to look out for, and a bar/restaurant. It's also a great spot for a night dive. Use the same beach entry for diving the Car Pile - a very unusual deep wreck dive that's well worth exploring. Suzy(at)the-dive-bus(dotcom)
