Great weekend, instructor Brett was really good, calm and knowledgable with a good sense of humour. All equipment and gear was in good condition and the days moved efficiently, often finishing well ahead of schedule. The open water dives were brilliant and we were able to complete all our skills and still have time to have a good look around... More

I did the open water course with my girl friend and we had an awesome time. Definitely doing the advanced course. The only downside is sometime the equipment isn't up to the greatest standards and recommend to buy your own. Overall this wasn't a major issue and had a wonderful time.

I wanted to become a certified Open water diver and found Abyss due to their high ratings. They don't disappoint! Had fun learning everything there was to learn about Scuba diving. I would definitely recommend booking a small class to have more time to perfect your new skills. Thank you Abyss and our great instructors. Look forward to more dives... More

Thanks Jarrad & Abyss Scuba Diving for a fantastic weekend up in Terrigal!

While have not been on one of these tours I have several friends. Each person has done nothing but rave. The owners are friendly and helpful. VERY professional and informative. However the most important thing everyone has come back saying is how SAFE they felt with this team. Also said the gear was in good shape.

Thanks for the review. Unfortunately, this March has been one of the wettest ever recorded in Sydney and we have cancelled more than half our boat dives and it has had some effect on the visibility, although the 10m you had on the day is average for Sydney diving. Most of the boat diving around Sydney is in the open... More
