Escape to a different world. Scuba takes you to a different world with new colours, shapes, textures and creatures – a world where the roles you play – husband, wife, mother, father, friend – take on a new dimension. Become a scuba diver and escape to a peaceful place to renew your energy and excite your senses.

Explore new places. Scuba diving frees you to explore the underwater world – from historic shipwrecks and pristine reefs to the magnificent underwater aquarium that is Sydney Harbour. Become a scuba diver and explore what you’ve been missing.

Experience

Experience a connection with nature; a feeling of freedom, and a transformation. Diving connects you with nature, it immerses you in new sensations and experiences and transforms your perception of life forever.

The Learn to Dive Course

Through an interactive web-based program you will complete your knowledge development online by viewing interactive presentations that include videos, audio, graphics and reading. Short quizzes let you gauge your progress, and review and correct anything you might happen to miss. This allows you to move through program efficiently and at your own pace.
