Here at Dive Spear and Sport, we offer a dive course for the next generation. Learning to dive, we want you to ACTUALLY learn to dive underwater, not just learn how to survive underwater. You should leave your course buzzing to get into the water again – and why wouldn’t you? The water is an amazing ecosystem that needs to be experienced in all its glory – under the surface! Experience the beauty of coral reefs, dive with sharks, navigate through caves or experience true history underwater on some of the world’s wrecks. No matter what you want to do, this is where your journey starts and Dive Spear and Sport will help you get there with an Open Water Course! Our courses are conducted with a maximum 4:1 student:instructor ratio, with a focus on quality individual and team skill-development.
The Course starts with e-learning to cover the basics of the underwater environment, physiology, physics and skills development. This information will be consolidated during the theory and pool session at the center on the first day of the course. This will get you comfortable with the equipment and with the skills in the water. We then follow that up with 4 open water dives out on the Southern Great Barrier Reef that will allow you to grow in confidence and put your skills learnt in the pool to the test. We want you to leave the course with the confidence to dive independently.
