Diving in Sydney

In Sydney, we are extremely lucky because the topography means we have many easily accessible scuba diving including great shore dives and boat dives.

On average, we have more than 50 different diving activities every month. See below for our range of PADI courses, free guided shore dives, boat dives, freedivers and more. There is no need for you to have a buddy because our divemasters can organise a dive buddy for you. As long as you have proof of certification, no matter the diver certification agency (PADI, SSI, BSAC, ANDI, RAID, GUE), you can come diving with us.

Note: The Dive Sites schedule is a guide of where we are planning to go and are in no way guaranteed. If we can't go to the dive site due conditions, then the Divemaster/skipper will nominate the next best suitable spot. There is no refund if we do not make it to the planned dive sites.
