Discover Scuba at Shelly Beach

This Scuba Introductory Dive Course offers anyone the opportunity to try scuba diving. 

Duration: 3.5 hours

About the Discover Scuba Course

Check in is at PRO DIVE Manly where you will complete paperwork and be fitted for gear hire. Onto the PRO DIVE Bus and off to Shelly Beach. Your day will start with a Safety Briefing and then into the water.  Private Courses are also available. This Scuba Introductory Dive Course offers anyone the opportunity to try scuba diving.  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. 
What you can see 
The site we dive is known as the Cabbage Tree Bay Marine Reserve. Whilst on the tour we will introduce you to our resident Blue Grouper 'George', Octopus, Giant Cuttlefish and if we are really lucky a Weedy Sea Dragon. Fiddler Rays and Wobbiegong Sharks, both harmless, are also residents.
