According to Times Live, the tourist had spent the previous day scuba diving with local divers.
A CCTV video that travelled like a wildfire across all social media platforms, exhibits the small Hyundai i10 slowly moving forward before plunging into the harbour.
It is alleged that the man forgot to pull up the handbrake, which saw the car sinking to the seafloor.
The man was on a nine-month tour in South Africa, and all his equipment, including expensive cameras and his laptop, were in the car, SA promo reported.
