The Fun Part

You'll be doing a dive in the pristine waters of one of Melbourne’s Mornington Peninsula shore sites with no more than 4 people per guide.

Your dive can be booked to suit your date requirements and once we have confirmed your booking date we guarantee it will run (weather permitting) even if there is just one person (you). This means there are never any cancellations due to minimum numbers not being met.

PADI Discover Scuba Dive starts with meeting your Professional Guide at the shop at 10:00 am or 2:00 pm of your selected date and is normally finished by 2:00 p.m.or 5:00pm.

The Scuba Gear You Use

You use all the basic scuba gear — BCD, Cylinder, Regulator, SPG, Dive Computer, Weight Belt, Wetsuit, Mask, Snorkel and Fins.

Personal Dive Gear:

We supply Mask, Snorkel and Full Foot Fins, however having your own will make the experience more comfortable.
