This course requires no previous experience and allows you to have a feel for what it’s like to breathe underwater. Taking only 5 hours to complete this course can easily fit into any holiday.

All courses are conducted from experienced dive professionals that will teach you the basic concepts of diving and train you in the basic, necessary skills for you to be comfortable on your first ocean dive. Once comfortable in our heated onsite pool, you will depart to Julian Rocks where you will dive under direct supervision of your instructor up to 12m depth.
