Discover Local Diving in Melbourne
You will have an experienced dive professional help you understand the local dive environment so you can better enjoy your dive adventure.
You may remember your PADI Instructor saying, “If you travel to a new location or visit an unfamiliar dive environment, get a local orientation.” Its good advice and easy to do. Just ask the local PADI dive shop for a Discover Local Diving experience. Scuba diving with an experienced local dive professional lets you relax and better enjoy the adventure.
Any certified diver who wants to dive in a new area or environment
For example, if all your diving has been in warm water on coral reefs and you travel to an area with colder water and kelp forests, Discover Local Diving is for you.
Or, if the majority of your experience is from dive boats, and you have the chance to do a shore dive with an entry through mild surf, sign up for a Discover Local Diving experience.
Your experienced PADI Pro will brief you on the dive site conditions, hazards and points of interest, plus describe the aquatic life you’ll see and how to interact responsibly with local creatures. If there are special procedures or techniques used locally, your dive professional will show you what to do to make your scuba dive fun and hassle-free.
