About the Discover Scuba Course

The whole experience is completed at Sydney's premier shore dive location Shelly Beach, Manly. At the beginning of the first dive you will be shown and asked to practice basic skills - these are the first skills all divers do on the Open water Course. Time to check out the marine life - you will then continue the dive under the supervision of your dive instructor.
