Master Melbourne Diving with ACADEMY OF SCUBA

While diving in Melbourne is spectacular - amazing wall dives, many wrecks and soft coral reefs all await you on your next dive - it does come with its own particular local challenges: "four seasons in one day" is as valid under the water as on land!

What we offer:

This course has been designed by one of our PADI Instructors specifically to provide a holistic package that will equip you with the skills, knowledge, planning, organisation, procedures and techniques that make Melbourne diving a breeze.
This is a one day, three dive course (We like diving, we dive as much as possible in this course!):


  • An evening of theory to learn and understand the diving techniques that will make your dives a lot more comfortable.

This will be conducted at our shop in Camberwell, generally in the evening. You'll be able to grab any last minute gear essentials, as well as other equipment you'll need for the course on this night.

Dive 1:

  • A shore dive to practise buoyancy skills and a DSMB deployment workshop.

Usually, this dive will be conducted off one of the many piers on the Mornington Peninsula. Students are welcome to stay in the AOS Club House in Rye over the night before, just speak to one of the team for more information.

Dive 2 + 3:

  • A double boat dive off our best walls. These dives you will be putting all of the theory learned in the classroom and  skills reviewed in dive 1 in to practice.

Experience some of the most beautiful dive sites in Melbourne from the boat dives that we do exploring sections of the Lonsdale Wall.
