A WORLD OF DIVING
ADVENTURE AWAITS...

We offer a full range of diving courses from the world's largest and most respected diver training agency - PADI. With greater global recognition than any other diver training organisation, your PADI certification will ensure you enjoy a warm welcome wherever you choose to dive!

Choosing the course that is right for you is easy with our friendly and knowledgeable staff there to guide you through the options available.

The next time your favourite wreck or carefully laid plan is blown out, remember the magical world of mud. Mud and fine sediment are there because it's a sheltered environment, which means it's also a possible bad weather weather alternative. No excuses for not diving, learning and discovering something you haven't seen before! Cheers, Tim

Vobster Santas Temp and Viz update: The forecast is for sun and clouds, with light SW winds. Underwater, we have a temp of 9 degrees at the surface and 20m viz in places. More importantly, we have around 140 divers forecast to attend - if we can get a few more, we might even be able to top the record of 188 to celebrate 10 years of Santa diving at Vobster Quay. Please remember to collect heaps of sponsorship money for the RNLI and Air Ambulance - the reason for Santa diving is fundraising to save lives. Cheers, Tim
