The Introductory Dive requires no previous SCUBA experience. You will be taught everything you need to know. Start by being introduced to the animals and learning about them from the safety of the viewing tunnel.
Your introduction to SCUBA Diving commences with a briefing on SCUBA equipment, required skills, and safety aspects. Before entering the oceanarium, you will be taught how to breath underwater. Once comfortable with the equipment and the underwater breathing, it's time to meet the sharks!
The Tune Up Dive is suitable for qualified divers who have logged less than 15 dives, or haven't dived in the last 6 months. Start by being introduced to the animals and learning about them from the safety of the viewing tunnel.

Once you are comfortable with the SCUBA equipment and breathing underwater, it's time to meet the sharks!
