Rocky Island




Science exploration with us includes all the different ways you can interact with the environment. At Argonaut Science we have benefitted greatly from our freediver training. Aside from holistically learning more about yourself, freediving is a brilliant way to explore the underwater environment with minimal impact and disturbance while maintaining a high standard of safety. As such, we offer a PADI Freediver certification over the course of a few days.

Marine Guiding

(ZAR 500 pp for groups of 3 - 10)

Sometimes you just want to walk on the beach​, other times you really want to know more! What are the colourful creatures that bejewel the rock pools? Is it a plant or an animal? Why are there worms growing on that snail? As a registered South African Tourist Nature Guide (FGASA- and CATHSSETA-accredited), our 3 hour tour will answer all your weird and wonderful questions as well as provide you with some scientific insight into the marvels of the coastline. Using a few homemade citizen science tools, you'll get to see invisible worlds. And of course, in true South African fashion, snacks are included!
