Are you ready to earn the world’s most recognised entry-level Scuba Diving certification, and begin your adventures exploring the underwater world? Over two weekends you can learn all the skills you need to become a safe and competent Scuba Diver, and be certified to dive to 18m anywhere in the world.
If you realise that diving is not for you at the pool session then we will refund all moneys paid. Further to this, we are so confident in our training, that if you do not think that the training was up to standard then we will refund all your course fees.
Just doing pier dives when getting certified just does not cut it. Diving off the boats in Victoria down to 18m will prepare you for being a confident, independent diver. We believe in creating confident and independent divers and dont save costs on our training. You will be comfortable diving in all conditions, and this is why our Open Water Diver course includes 2 boat dives, as well as shore dives.
Why risk large groups and training that is not personalised? Our course sizes are small, helping you to get as personal an experience as possible when you learn to dive, and ensuring you get all the help you need to build your confidence as a newly qualified diver.
Learning to dive is an investment. dont waste yours by doing the course and not having a network to continue diving with afterwards. We also organise reunion dives so that your investment in becoming a diver is not wasted
With half price gear hire vouchers after your course, its cheap and easy to head back into the water.
Just speak to our past students and club members. Our promise to give you the best training is backed up by dozens of testimonials that can be found on Facebook.
