Learning to scuba dive is a wonderful experience and we can teach you and your friends to become scuba divers today. SSI is the worlds leading agency for training safe and competent divers. The SSI Open Water Diver course is the very basic of Scuba Diving. At Pro Dive Central Coast, we believe that dive training needs to be fun, while obtaining high level skill set at the same time.

Imagine you and your new scuba friends kneeling down on the sand feeding hundreds of small fish with crumbs of bread from your hands. 

Have a look around at the small stingrays swimming by and the tiny fish with whiskers fanning through the sand looking for worms whilst the Blue Gropers tempt you with their eyes to feed them.

  • Scuba Diving is much easier than you might think! 
  • Be ready to enjoy a new challenge and dive into a new world! 
  • Scuba diving is a wonderful sport that offers everything from heart-pumping action to quiet relaxation.
