Student Diver Testimonials

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

Open Water Course

Everyone we met through Feet First had an obvious passion for diving and there was never a dull moment.
I would wholeheartedly recommend learning to dive with Feet First. The enthusiasm, experience and knowledge of the employees was encouraging.
