What you'll do

Get ready for an unforgettable experience under the sea! Once you book you'll receive a message from me confirming your size for gear, once we meet at the dive location, we'll get to know each other and will share with you a quick history of the island. Then we'll discuss all the amazing unique sea life you'll see in Sydney's majestic underworld; things like Friendly blue groupers, Rays, Cuddle fish, Octopus and yes of course sharks! (the nice ones) Safety is a huge priority on all dives, so i'll give you a detailed discussion on what to do while under water, how to breath, kick and float. Don't worry i'll be doing most of the things for you to enjoy. Depending on your level of experience we'll: 1) Give you a Discover Scuba Experienced in calm waters (New Divers, No Experience Necessary) 2) Take you Guided Diving, deeper further out (Certified Divers) 3) This experience is for a single dive with options if you wish to become certified after *1 Dive included for $195 or add a 2nd back to back dive for $150aud *All scuba gear provided, you'll have everything you need to dive and stay nice and warm under the sea. *Led by a certified and insured experience instructor that has done and taught thousands of dives. *Safety briefing, what you'll see and assistance in/out of the water all included *Light Snack, coffee/tea provided after *Dive like a local, small groups, no more

Jason

Founder of Expedition Dive, Jason Bettinger is a certified PADI – MSDT “Master Scuba Dive Trainer” and has trained/guided thousands of divers in the last 10 years. He has travelled to more than 31 countries around the globe while experiencing some of the world’s best diving travel destinations. It’s no wonder that in recent years he has made Sydney, Australia - a world class diving destination - his home. He quotes “Under the ocean, is earth’s last frontier. Nobody owns it except nature herself. It's the last place in the world that is truly peaceful, natural and free" Not only that the world is over 70% water so to know earth is to know diving and its worth protecting. On his spare time he advocates for sustainability for our oceans and protection of endangered marine species, some of which are found right in the Sydney harbours.

Where you'll be

Did you know you'll be diving where Australia was founded by the English captain James Cook in 1770? We'll be at the exact spot, a place known as 'Bare Island.' There's majestic other worldly things to see underwater! This is an experience of a life time especially if you've never been diving before! One of the best spots in Sydney its at the mouth of Botany Bay, 30min south of Sydney CBD.

Guest requirements

Sunscreen

More tips

Diving does require physical activity; although weightless and low impact under the water, does need preparation to get in. If you have severe asthma, epilepsy or a condition that will prevent you from lifting a tank (eg back/knee surgery) you must obtain medical clearance prior to diving.
