Course Dates


PADI Open Water Diver courses involve 3 days of practical training following completion of the online knowledge development portion.  You can pre-book your preferred practical training dates prior to commencing your online knowledge development (e-learning), provided that you allow sufficient time to finish the theory before the first day of in-water training.

Upcoming dates for full-time courses are listed below, however we understand that your other commitments may clash with one or more of the dates you select.  As such, we may be able to tailor-make a programme just for you!  Simply contact us to enquire about options around the dates listed below.  

Finishing times each day are approximate depending on numbers of participants and how quickly the group is able to master the required skills.

What to bring with you on the day:

  • togs & towel
  • mask & snorkel
  • packed lunch & water bottle

Do I need a medical?

All participants must complete an RSTC medical.  If you have any pre-existing medical conditions, you must be examined & signed off by your doctor before in-water training can commence.  If you are unsure, please feel free to discuss your individual circumstances with one of our team.  It is vital that you answer all questions honestly, as undisclosed medical conditions could potentially cause a life-threatening situation.

Off-street parking is very limited, so we ask that you utilise the free parking available on Selwyn Street (directly behind Dive Zone) to keep the carpark clear for other customers dropping off & picking up equipment throughout the day.
