    Luis Nunura - 28-Oct-2016

  • "I had the best experience learning to dive with Pro Dive Cronulla. Luke is an amazing instructor, his passion for diving and his patience for teaching beginners inspired me to continue diving and training in Sydeny. The weekday open water course was very comprehensive and allowed for enough time to practice our skills in the pool as well as in the ocean. The online theory allowes trainees to work at their own pace completing the tutorials at home in conjunction with continuous review of important concepts that were reiterated during classroom reviews. The staff are passionate, friendly and very knowledgable. "
