Gear Hire

Hired some snorkelling gear for me and my partner and Trudie was nothing but kind and helpful!
Hopefully one day will get to get a dive cert through feet first.
Highly recomended to everyone!

Introduction to Scuba

It was awesome! Trudie was awesome , constantly showing us all the awesome underwater goodies, nudibranchs, fish turtle and so on! Can’t wait to do the open water dive cert with her!!!

Open Water Course

The best two days i've had while learning new skills. Trudie and Dave were great, we laughed constantly and I learned heaps but all with no rush. They were full of knowledge and experience with over 750 dives between them. They were also really fun and understanding....VERY VERY happy i went with them. Enough said get to the bay and say gday
