“The most revelatory three minutes for me was the first time I put on scuba gear and dived on a coral reef. It’s just the unbelievable fact that you can move in three dimensions.”
– David Attenborough
Have you always wanted to know what it’s like to fly? Well scuba diving is about as close as you can get. When you master the skill of breathing underwater you can experience the feeling of being completely weightless.
Not to mention the fact that there are so many incredible things to explore beneath our oceans. From ancient Mayan cenotes to wartime shipwrecks and unbelievable creatures like cuttlefish and mola mola, there is so much to see.
A Discover Scuba Dive is an easy, low commitment way to find out if scuba diving could be for you. You will spend 1.5 hours in a safe pool environment with a trained dive professional where you will be able to learn the basic principles of diving before having a go for yourself.
Perhaps you have been thinking about diving for years, or you’re looking for a new challenge or skill to learn? Maybe you’re looking for a present for the person who has everything, or even a cool activity to do as a family! Well a Discover Scuba Dive could be just what you’re looking for.
Got questions? You might find the answers in the FAQs below, but if you don’t just send me an email or message me on Facebook to talk more about taking your first steps into the world of diving.
MEET YOUR GUIDE
Hi there! I’m Bella, the owner of Down Under Diving. I’ve been exploring the deep blue for 17 years and have dived all over the world, from the cold waters of New Zealand, to the coral reefs of Egypt.
After doing my Open Water certification here in New Zealand I went on to train in Thailand where I became a Divemaster (as well as doing my wreck, deep, nitrox, oxygen provider, first aid and intro to tech courses). For the last 12 months I have been dry-suit diving in Scotland where I qualified as a DSD leader before returning home.
I’m now based in Masterton, running Discover Scuba Diving experiences to help introduce more people to my passion. If you have ever thought about diving, whether for food, for pleasure, or both…now is the time to try.
More than 70% of the earth is covered in water, that’s a lot of amazing stuff to be missing out on! If you’re ready to discover scuba diving just get in touch.
