Completed the course and despite some bad weather which meant they had to fit in a final dive on the last day of my trip- a Sunday so I could finish... More

I must admit that I was nervous...but that quickly turned to excitment as I got into the water with my dive guide, Laura (I think). She stayed with me... More

My wife and I did scuba diving with sharks at the National Aquarium with Nathan from the Dive Centre as our guide. It was a great experience for 2 novice divers and Nathan made us feel very relaxed. We were promised 40 minutes in the pool and would have had at least that. There was no time pressure and it... More
