Who can enjoy scuba diving?

Anyone 8 years or older with passing medical check. 

Why is the medical questionnaire so important? Any medical concerns can be a trigger to injuries while diving. But not all medical conditions will stop you from diving. Your physician will be able to advise you if your medical history or present condition will refrain you from attempting SCUBA diving.

How Can we enjoy scuba diving?

Learning to SCUBA dive will start from a pool.

Before committing to a SCUBA diving course, dive into a trial experience one-on-one with your instructor in a nearby pool. This easy introduction allows you to test the waters and ensure this adventure is the perfect fit for you! You can try SCUBA diving in your own pool or at your local pool nearby.

We provide all gear and come to you.

We have you covered, no matter your age (from 8 years old), ability and experience. We provide local pick up and provide any SCUBA gear you don't have.

Octopus Dive is here to help you on your diving journey, whether you want to learn or advance your SCUBA skills for recreational or occupational purposes.

Where can we enjoy scuba diving?

We have the most amazing marine eco-system, actually the largest in the world, right here on our doorstep.

Without having to travel too far, islands nearby are very easily accessible by ferry or own boat and you can enjoy SCUBA for yourself.

Other places that are becoming popular are lakes. No boat ride, just a short drive to the Atherton tableland and you get to experience freshwater diving with it’s various fish life, eels, turtles and an underwater forest.
