Coastal & Marine Conference

The 6th International Coastal & Marine Tourism Congress (CMT) is to be held in Nelson Mandela Bay, South Africa from 23 to  26 June, 2009.

International divers report viewing more marine species per dive in Algoa Bay than a weeks diving in some of the world’s most popular dive spots.

It was the legend of Prester John that brought Bartholomeu Dias to Algoa Bay more than 500 years ago. Prester John, so the legend said, founded a prosperous kingdom of great beauty and wealth in an unknown location where peace reigned and man lived in harmony with strange creatures alongside the fountain of youth.

We believe that this great beauty and wealth is not gold bullion or sunken treasure but rather a marine environment second to none just waiting to be discovered by every visitor with a desire to explore our silent world.
