LEVEL UP YOUR DIVING Explore some further frontiers

As you progress with your Scuba Diving, more specialised skills become both desirable and necessary to pursue the underwater adventures you want.  Included in those more advanced dives is an added element of risk, and a need for more advanced equipment, and therefore training.

At Aquatic Adventures our staff have a wide range of interests and experience, but one thing we all have in common is a desire for safety and knowledge in all the areas of diving we undertake.  We don’t offer courses we wouldn’t have taken ourselves at the appropriate points in our own diving journeys, and we have tailored all our more advanced courses to be relevant both locally and internationally.

  • Deep Diver: There’s something exciting and mysterious about exploring deeper dive sites while scuba diving. To scuba dive with confidence at depths down to 40 metres, you should take the PADI Deep Diver Specialty course and learn more about managing gas supply, planning deeper dives, and dealing with the risks of entering deco.
  • Wreck DiverWhether purpose-sunk for scuba divers, or lost as the result of an accident, wrecks are fascinating windows to the past. Ships, airplanes and even cars are fascinating to explore and usually teem with aquatic life.  With an extensive collection of shipwrecks accessible from our bay, Victoria is somewhat of a wreck divers paradise, so if this interests you, then the PADI Wreck Diver course is a must!
  • Self-Reliant Diver: Increase your confidence and abilities to deal with a situation where you find yourself on your own or give yourself the ability to dive independently of your buddy. This is a perfect course for photographers and those who prefer solitude on their dives.
  • Search & Recovery Diver: People accidentally drop things from docks, off boats or even while scuba diving. There are effective ways to search for objects underwater that increase your chances of success. And there are good and better methods to bring up small, large, or just awkward items.  If you want to get involved in marine salvage, then this is a great place to start.
  • Sidemount Diver: A Sidemount configuration (scuba tanks alongside of the diver, rather than on their back) offers more flexibility and better streamlining options.  Sidemount is a great option for levelling-up to carrying 2 tanks, thereby doubling your available gas, and opening up the possibility of longer dives.
