Have you ever wanted to try Scuba Diving? Want to find out what all the fuss is about?

You can come along for a morning session in our pool with our very experienced PADI Instructors who will show you the way and get you blowing bubbles underwater in no time!

First of all we will have you try on a wetsuit and equipment for size and then we will get you into our custom built dive pool to practice some basic skills of Scuba Diving.

In our pool we have, what we like to call our wreck!
This is a great chance for you to swim around it and and practice your newfound diving skills!

Once you have completed your pool session there is just enough time for lunch before we whisk you out to the incredible Whitsunday islands, where you will be immersed in the beautiful turquoise waters surrounded by millions of species of fish and coral!!

You may even be lucky enough to meet a turtle!

As a Discover Scuba Diver you will be guided at all times by an experienced PADI Professional.
They will show you many wonders of the underwater world.

Included in your afternoon tour you will have snacks and refreshments.
Tea, coffee and cold water are all available onboard Calypso.

You will be taken to different sites around the Whitsunday islands and have the opportunity to participate in two Discover Scuba Dives. You may even get a chance to snorkel in between.
