One story

One man and one current

The story of the unique journey of a Benguela Diamond Diving Safari begins in the depths of the Benguela Current on west coast of South Africa. It is the story of a single man’s dream to share the fascinating beauty of diamonds with the rest of the world. And so Benguela Diamonds was founded, named after the cool Benguela Current which flows north from the Cape of Good Hope along the west coast of South Africa to the equator. Its underwater banks are extremely rich in mineral stones – especially diamonds. Dive for them! It’s time to find your own ocean treasure.
