Boat & Shore Dives

Sydney's topography leads to some amazing diving both right off the shore and from a boat. With an average of fifty different Sydney diving activities monthly, Abyss Scuba Diving offers a wide variety of PADI courses, FREE dives led by a divemaster, boat dives, weekend trips, freediving, and more! We are prepared to accept a wide range of diver certifications as long as you have sufficient proof of your certification for that dive; we can also organize a buddy if necessary.

If it has been more than six months since your last dive and you have completed fewer than twenty dives, we highly recommend taking a refresher (reactivate) course. This will ensure that you maintain your skills and stay updated in the most effective and enjoyable manner possible.

Sydney Dive Schedule

If conditions make the planned site unsuitable, the DM/Skipper will move the dive to the next best site. There is no refund if we do not make it to the planned dive site, as we cannot guarantee the specific spot on a given day.

Transport is not included in this dive. If you do not have your own transport, the best option is an uber to and from the site because of social distancing.
