Sydney has scores of different dive sites to offer, as well as numerous sites only an hour away. Each Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Abyss offers the opportunity to experience these dive sites that are right at your door step. You can customize your shore dives to fit in with your schedules very easily. The shore dives consist of two dives finishing around 2-3pm. If you have a bit of a busier schedule, you can come for one dive and be finished before 12pm which allows you the rest of the day to catch up with friends and family. But with all the fun that will be going on with Abyss, you will find it difficult to bring yourself to leave once the day is over.

During your shore diving experiences, you will meet many different divers exactly like you, and who may be interested in different aspect of diving which you’re soon to discover. Abyss has numerous social events after our shore dives such as free BBQs back at the shop, or simply heading over to the pub for a cold drink after the day.
