Ocean Divers International – Welcome to the Family!

Ocean Divers International (ODI) was established in Port Elizabeth, South Africa during 1982 as a SCUBA Dive Training and Equipment retailer. Over the past 30 years, we have trained thousands of sport divers and many dive professionals; most of them are still considered to be industry leaders today.


Our “One Stop Dive Shop” philosophy put all your diving needs under one roof. Our facilities offer an indoor heated pool, clean ablutions, indoor and outdoor showers; ample safe parking, a modern Clean Air Station and fully stocked Equipment room for gear rentals.



From the moment you walk in you will feel accepted as an important part of the ODI family! We are known for fun, our family values, our flawless safety record. We strive to offer the best possible products (Mares, PADI, Reef, Poseidon and Tusa) at competitives prices while setting new trends with innovative “dive as much as you like products”.


We offer courses from beginner to divemaster. Your training options also include many specialities ranging from skin diver to re-breathers. Our students include children from 10 years of age to the adventurous golden oldies exceeding 65 years. Flexible course programs are available to cater for your busy schedule.


We spoil our charter clients. Our novel “We drive You dive” concept transports you to and from the launch sites from our Walmer Training Centre. We use our Bubble Bus and our two 8 meter Super Ducks to get you to the many dive sites we frequent.


The Port Elizabeth Deep Sea Angling Club (PEDSAC) slipway has walk on facilities  and you just step onto the boat (you don’t have to be traumatized by surf launches). PEDSAC have wonderful facilities (including meals and drink) and our ODI customers are invited to frequent and use them.
