If our scheduled courses suit you, you can simply book in. Otherwise, please contact us with your preferred dates and we will work around your personal schedule!

You don't have to feel the pressure! We train you at your pace - we adapt the program to your personal circumstances, needs and desires.


Whether you're looking to adapt due to a disability or simply have personal preferences regarding specialty dives, such as those offered in Advanced Open Water courses, we offer a diverse range of adventure dives.


It's not just about mastering the skills; it's about creating an individualized learning journey that empowers you to explore the depths with confidence.

Take the learning online and go through the course material at your own pace.


Your booking deposit pays for the learning materials. You then have 12 months to complete the online theory and schedule your practical training.


Your instructor is available via phone or video link for any questions you may have!

Enjoy a more personal approach. Our small group training makes learning during your diving course more adaptable and stress free. You can better focus on your own skills and become a comfortable diver.

All our occupational diving courses are nationally AQF recognised. After successful completion of your course, you will receive your accreditation certificate and be employable as a diver anywhere in Australia.
