I have recently completed the Abyss PADI Freediver Course and it was absolutely fantastic. Starting out in this new sport can be quite daunting but Jimmy the instructor was very calming, supportive and you can see he has a wide knowledge and passion for his sport. With only 4 students in the class (this is the maximum number) you felt very well looked after and Jimmy was able to give everyone the one to one training as and when they needed it without it affecting the flow of the class. The first day consisted of learning skills in the pool and the second day we were out in the open water putting them into practice. We all achieved the 10 meter depth level which was amazing. As with all the Abyss Scuba Diving courses, this is another 5 star course. Whether you are looking to start your freediving journey or wanting to brush up on your skills, I cannot recommend this course highly enough. I cannot wait to get practicing and work towards the advanced level. Thank you Jimmy and the whole Abyss Team

I was in Sydney for work and booked a private seadragon dive with Abyss. Flexible start time, communication was great before the trip. I’m a cold water wimp and normally don’t dive in 20 degrees or below waters but decided to brave it for the weedy’s as I’d never seen one before. Simon was my guide and super helpful, went above and beyond to help me with the shore entry (I am horrible at shore entries) and carried my (very heavy) full frame camera up and down the steps. We did 2 dives at The Steps (it is not for the faint of heart) and saw 3 weedy seadragon. Visibility wasn’t great and degraded further during the second dive, but we also saw giant cuttlefish, a wobbegang shark (my first), port Jackson shark eggs, and a yellow seahorse. Would recommend Abyss and Simon!

Had a fantastic day diving with Abyss. We did the free guided shore dive 'The Leap to The Steps.' Good visibility, really friendly, informative and safety conscious guide (Marcus), Weedy Seadragons, wobegongs, rays, octopus and more. Excellent rental gear from Abyss. Highly recommended.

I have been diving with Abyss for 8 years and there is a good reason for this - they are the best in Sydney (in my opinion). Every dive with them is as enjoyable as the last. The staff members get to know you by name and make you feel a part of the Abyss community. Marty (Skipper) knows how and when to get to the best sites so that each person onboard gets the best diving on the day. You can't go past the secret soup recipe and tobasco sauce - it's the only reason I surface between dives. Seriously, which dive shop has a better boat then Abyss. Where else in Sydney can you get a hot shower between dives. If you are keen in learning to dive or a seasoned pro, choose Abyss - you won't be let down.
