Our History

Divetek has been in the scuba industry since 1984.

We are not a small e-commerce shop but a Massive Megastore based in Bromhof, Randburg.
We are extremely proud to boast that we have by far the biggest and most well stocked shop in Africa. As well as having our own Brand of Equipment, we also have our very own South African based Training association.

Divetek designs, manufactures and imports top quality Equipment and sells it direct to the Public at unbeatable prices.
We test and evaluate the products we sell so that we can give accurate honest advice on all brands of Diving Equipment.

Along with our large Showroom we have a fully functional workshop that services all makes of gear as well as being equipped to Service computers and Cylinder Testing.

With very few exceptions everything in our catalogue is actually in stock and we can supply immediately. Some are end of lines and so we do not always have a full size curve.
We do however, reserve the right to screw up occasionally.

We ship all over the country at really reasonable rates and shipping takes place at about 3pm every week day.

We fill cylinders, rent out Equipment, train divers from beginner to instructor, sell dive gear along with good honest advice, service equipment, sell second hand gear AND make excellent coffee, so pop in for all your Diving Needs!

Interns 2017



One of the survivors of our 2017 Internship. Bradon likes hiding in the workshop due to his fear of people, hence we keep him hidden in the back. Bradon always has a smile on his face and is a pleasure to work with.



Yet another survivor of our 2017 internship, and a dedicated diver committed to learning at every point. Oscar is currently involved in workshop functions, and is making his way to earning his instructor qualification.



The biggest adjustment for Lawrence was to wear closed shoes, he also often makes reference to Curry being a Durban boy. Jokes aside Lawrence should be a qualified instructor by February 2018. Due to his excellent way with people, he currently works in the shop assisting customers on a day to day basis.
