Whaleshark Open Water Dive Course
Australia’s most exciting dive courses? We think so!
When you enrol to SCUBA dive with us to do your Whaleshark Open Water Diver course you get to swim with a whale shark during your course! (Now that's doing a dive course you are going to remember! And the photos will make more friends jealous too!;-)
And because your course involves more than one day on our whale shark tour boat, most of the students doing their Whale Shark Dive Course (whether Open Water or Advanced) do their dive ticket diving the Ningaloo Reef AND swim with a whaleshark AND get the chance to swim with a whale shark a second day for just $50 more!!
Ningaloo Open Water Dive Course
One of Australia's best value dive courses - its inexpensive whilst giving you the opportunity to dive on the amazing Ningaloo Reef's corals and experience its stunning diversity of sealife up very close and personal.
And you get the chance to upgrade during your course and swim with a whaleshark if you decide to when out in the big blue of the Ningaloo, if there are spaces available on your tour boat. (Legally we can only take 20 people swimming with a whaleshark on a tour.)
Whether you choose the Ningaloo or the Whaleshark Open Water Dive Courses, you will enjoy one of the best ways to learn to dive, anywhere in Australia.
PADI Open Water Dive Courses
Becoming a PADI Open Water Diver is the best way to start your scuba adventure! PADI is recognised as leading recreational diver training internationally, and is accepted as a dive certification at most dive shops and tours around the world.
PADI training is designed so you can learn the theory of diving at your own pace whenever it is convenient for you. We will support you with full-colour manuals, DVDs and free Online Training offers to make sure you have enough training options. Your instructor is also there to answer any questions you may have as you go.
For your pool and open water training your instructor will fit you to your scuba equipment so you will become comfortable in your “second skin.” Day 2 sees you learning the basic theory and skills of SCUBA diving in the safety of confined water. Your instructor will be next to you making sure you get enough practice time to adapt yourself to the underwater environment before you start with your open water training dives.
Then its out for Day 3 and 4 of your course on our whale shark tour boat to do your open water dives, and complete your course. The Ningaloo Reef provides a great place to learn to dive with its amazing sealife and corals, and relatively protected dive sites.
