Testimonials:

Thanks to Dive Centre Manly & Ana's Shark Awareness Course I had the chance to get to know this shop and this amazing crew! I then decided to join their Divemaster training and it was the best decision I have ever made! The whole team went above and beyond during my training, helping and supporting me the whole time, boosting my confidence, and guiding me with feedback and suggestions from every single instructor. These guys are just top level professionals! The customer care provided was just outstanding, and the whole team is so friendly, knowledgeable and genuinely passionate about their jobs. From Tec to wreck diving, from photography to shark awareness courses and much more, you can really find all the answers here!

Ester Borean, January 2021

I completed my Divemaster in September last year with Anais as my instructor. To say I was very luck to have Ana as my Divemaster instructor is an understatement. She is an amazing diver, she leads by example and she is very good at understanding the student and adapting her teaching style to ensure they succeed. All successes, small or large, are celebrated, which is a great motivator, as the divemaster course can be challenging sometimes. Anais really enjoys seeing her students succeed and that’s what makes her an outstanding instructor. Thanks, Ana!

Ana Barreto, September 2020

I completed my Divemaster with Dive Center Manly and was lucky to be coached by Anais. It’s not uncommon to hear divers talking about her qualities which is absolutely true. Although her professionalism, commitment and knowledge are unmatched, what really amazes me is her approach to diving. I completely share her views that diving is not only getting into the water... so much more is involved on this journey and Anais can see the big picture so accurately. Thank you Anais for helping me through the journey and for sharing your passion with us. Looking forward to continuing my diving education with you.
