Dive descriptions below.
Come and Dive – Starting at $70US
Sit back, be casual, and enjoy the best of leisure scuba. You will form part of a small group of divers that go out to have a good time and create a wonderful experience for themselves, returning with smiley faces and stories to tell. Whilst on the dive every diver gets what they want out of it.
Morning 9:30am two tank dive is 30-45 minutes long and normally returns to shore in between dives. The second of the two tank leaves at 12pm or before. Sites are selected on the morning to best suit the group. This tour normally ends between 13:00 and 14:00 hrs. Depending on the time, an afternoon two tank dive can be arranged or the normal single tank in Carlisle Bay where a few snorkelers may join.
Night dives are amazing with our Ultra Violet lights. Everything goes psychedelic! An amazing experience once you’ve never done the lights before.
Boat entry is also easy. ‘Blessed’ the G Fish dive boat can come right to the shore. Just your ankles may get wet. All dives are done by boat and led by a Padi professional.
Try our 1-dive Discovery Dive – $110US
Get in the water, blow some bubbles and find out in over three hours what you think of diving. No massive training courses, no over-complications. Water. Bubbles. Good times.
We start off with a short 20 minute video and safety briefing. We then enter the ocean! Shallow ‘pool like’ conditions so if you have any discomfort just stand up. From there you get some time to play with the bubbles you create while getting used to breathing underwater. A simple basic skill set follows which is practicing in water what you have already seen in the video.
Once this is complete and you show that you are comfortable with it all, we go check out 6 shipwrecks and schools of tropical fish. Fish feeding and diving with sea turtles.
Open Water Certification -$450US
The PADI card everyone talks about. Have you got your PADI? This is it. With over 4 dives we’ll play around in the water and work some really cool exercises to show you the ropes so you are free to dive anywhere in the world.
Two dives a day (‘days’ would be considered as a morning 9am -2pm relatively), each dive teaching you a little more of what you need to know to be a safety conscious and capable diver. Drift dives, buoyancy exercises, and a few skills to make a ‘low maintenance’ diver. The type of divers that Dive Leaders find a joy to be on a boat with. During your course you’ll be exposed to various conditions step by step to make you better than the diver you thought you could be.
Courses are taught to your pace. You’ll be taught to take scuba seriously! But by all means have a laugh while you’re doing it.
Advanced Open Water Certification – $380US
Ready to dive the wrecks? Navigate underwater? What about learning how to night dive? During our dives we’ll take the next step to make you the best diver you can be.
Over the course of five dives and a bit of book work (that can be done online or before vacation) totaling two to three days, you’ll be exactly as it says on the card……advanced!!
Deep diver and Underwater Navigation are mandatory then you choose any other three of your options of adventure dives to make you tune up and sharpen your skills.
A deeper understanding of scuba and what makes a dive work is the total intention of the lesson. Understanding currents and how to make them work for you, identifying types of coral that grow along cardinal points as aids in natural navigation, safety equipment management and use and above all the importance and awareness of your own safety. And of course, having a laugh while you’re at it!
Rescue Diver&EFR -$450US
This is the most exciting and engaging PADI course. When you’ve become such a natural diver that you can start thinking of others and their safety, we’ll show you how to recognize fear, how to help people and, most importantly, how to save lives. This is the course where we make you feel like and know that you can be a real life hero to someone. This is no joke and not a course to be taken lightly. In one to two days you’ll learn all the signs to detect discomfort and know that you have practiced the skills to be confident, capable and qualified to assist in a situation.
The Emergency First Response Course teaches you to handle critical situations that could otherwise be fatal if YOU were not present. CPR from infant to adult and management of injuries, cuts and bruises. Who knew !? That you knew how to administer oxygen to someone or relieve a choking baby. This is that course!
This course feeds that secret superhero in all of us.
