*Add the Enriched Air Nitrox Specialty and save $100!

**Add Enriched Air to your Advanced course for $245 – usually $345. PADI's most popular specialty course, Enriched air allows you no decompression time – which means more time underwater. It is also safer, as you breathe less nitrogen, leaving you less tired. The specialty also counts towards the Master Scuba Diver rating and is required for the Divemaster Course

*Add a Night Dive and save $75 (torch hire included).

**Add a Guided Night Dive to your Advanced course for $95. Explore the mysteries underwater on a night dive as nocturnal marine life emerge. Complete the Advanced Open Water certification and enjoy the tranquillity of diving at night at a reduced rate on the Guided Night Dive. Become a well-rounded diver with this add-on. One Guided Night Dive also counts towards the PADI Night Specialty Course

COVID-19 Change in Operations 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have changed our diving operations to keep within NSW Government guidelines.

We have suspended all club member trips, weekends away and overseas trips. 

Local group Shore Dives and PADI Courses are still available during this period from Friday 15th May.  

On all courses and dives we are to keep a safe 1.5m physical distancing while on land.  

Thank you for your continued support during this period.
