Whilst driving through Matraville, i thought i would drop into Sydney Dive Safari at 512 Bunnerong Road, alas their shop is 'no more'. On getting home i tried to access their website, also tried ringing them, all to no avail. As there was no indication of their demise at the Matraville address, i would advise anyone to be careful if thinking of booking anything with them by any means.

I purchased a try dive voucher for my brothers 21st birthday and 2 months later they were closed and deleted their facebook and website and are refusing to pick up their phone regarding my $200 refund!

They’re permanently closed for business but not closed to take my money! On 2nd October I was allowed to book off of their website for a dive Tuesday 6th October. I was yet to receive a confirmation email so I tried to contact them via phone which is disconnected!! Their website said they were to be closed the day of my dive due to the public holiday! (yet they still took my money and their website still allowed me to book for that day!) I emailed them and received an automated reply that they’ll contact when they can and that “we have been unable to negotiate any adjustment to our lease leaving us with the difficult decision to vacate”. I still haven’t heard from them. I’ve now had to escalate it with PayPal. So disrespectful. Avoid them if I were you!

I did some of the SSI specialty course ( Nitrox, Deep , Navigation and Night) provided by Sydney Dive Safari. Excellent support and professionalism provided by Miguel and the instructors ( Graham and Dillan) whom were following me during the training and mostly during the practical exercises. I did improve a lot thanks to them. Highly recommended
