Experience

Diving is not just about getting wet and looking at fish, there are so many different kinds of dives that are possible. Night Diving, always a little spooky at first, so many different animals come out to play at night, you should never miss an opportunity to dive at night, you never know what will turn up.

Deep Dive, on this course you can dive down to a maximum depth of 30 metres, see what the effects of Nitrogen Narcosis have on you, see the light change, and what fish will be waiting down there for you.
