Season 1

Divers Down is a South African drama series that chronicles the emotional and physical journeys of six young South Africans who are fully prepared to pay the ultimate price for their country.

It is a story of a group of young men and women who, after completing their initial military basic training, voluntarily sign up for what is perhaps the most grueling and dangerous course in the country.

The group of diverse young men and woman must overcome their personal limitations and their conflicted inter-relationships as they learn to work together in their quest to graduate from the world-renowned South African Navy Dive Centre.

For the duration thereof, the characters are pushed to the limits of their physical and mental endurance as they are exposed not only to the natural hazards, but also as they are schooled in how to deal with the perils of war-time tactics – sea mines, thunder flashes, enemy attack, divers and gunboats ready to pick them off should they ever surface.

Divers Down is set at the Simonstown Navy Dive Centre and the intensity of the physical training involved underpins the arc of the series.

But ultimately, it is a human drama about a group of young people who must overcome their personal hang-ups, manage inter-personal conflicts, and learn to work together as a team, or fail individually.
