We will take you through how to enter and exit a boat safely as well as how to descend safely from a boat and perform a safety stop upon exit. Once you've covered the basics of boat diving, you can find caves, swim throughs, overhands and drop offs during your boat dives. It's the best way to see Sydney's underwater life! Explore multicoloured sponges, southern corals, sea fans and gorgonian branches flourish on the reefs which attract a huge amount of fish life. You can also expect to spot eastern blue gropers, weedy sea dragons, nudibranches, kingfish, leatherjackets, wrasse, moray eels, wobbegongs, octopus, giant cuttlefish and much more on your boat dive! 

All you need to bring with you is your certification card, swimmers, towel and any personal dive equipment you wish to use on the day. For non-certified divers we offer our Discover Scuba Dive experience. 

Every effort will be made to take you to the dive site you have booked. However this will always be depended upon conditions on the day. If conditions are not suitable, we will determine an alternative location.
