Australia Dive Training

Australia offers a wealth of travel experiences, from the drama of the outback and the diving spectacle of the Great Barrier Reef to the cosmopolitan city of Sydney and arguably the best beaches in the world.

Australia is an enormous country, and visitors expecting to see an opera in Sydney one night and meet Crocodile Dundee the next, followed by whale shark excursions in Western Australia the next, will have to radically re-think their grasp of geography and perspective of distance.

The detailed information about the courses is mainly related to dive courses in Australia. However, we can also arrange these courses for you at our other destinations.


A dive instructor will teach students according to standards of a dive association. There are a number of dive associations. Some of the biggest ones are PADI, NAUI, SSI and CMAS. They are all internationally recognized dive associations. If you have a certification card with one of them, you can dive anywhere in the world.

In Australia and most other countries in the South Pacific, PADI courses are most common. A limited number of dive operators offer NAUI courses, SSI courses and others.

Medical Preconditions

In Australia, it is required by law to take a medical examination before you take certain dive courses. If you are a certified diver (at any level) and just want to dive, you do not need to take a medical examination in Australia. more details on dive medicals
