Founders: Louis and Michelle van Aardt

The company was started  over 24 years ago by Louis and Michelle van Aardt who had a passion for diving and travel. Over the years they have grown Pro Dive  from a small outlet known as the “Red Windmill” on the Port Elizabeth beach front, into the trusted and quality world-class brand that it is today. It was a combination of the love of diving, the ocean, working with people, travel & a passion for conservation that inspired them on their journey.

The facility includes a purpose built heated training pool, lecture rooms, showers, coffee shop, offices, fully stocked show room, service centre & travel office to cater for all your diving requirements.
