As I was quite apprehensive in completing the practical section of the PADI Open Water Certification, I elected to choose Abyss’s Premium Scuba lessons which allowed flexibility and a dedicated instructor – one on one. This was definitely the best decision for me. I was extremely lucky to have Jarrad as my instructor. He was professional, articulate, caring but most... More

My first dive in Australia and introduction to cold(er) water diving at Bare Island with Abyss was just fantastic. From the friendly greeting, free ride to the dive site to the (brief) but informative briefing, I knew I was in for a good day.
