Our classes are limited to a small number so you get maximum time with our experienced instructors. We also offer a number of convenient ways to complete your training.

Hey, I had a fantastic weekend! Aside from the mask removal that is!! We are actually going on a shark dive in Nelson Bay next weekend. Thanks for being an awesome instructor as well - much appreciated :)
Verity - PADI Open Water Diver

Thanks Dive 2000, you’ve made my transition from land to water as easy & interesting as riding a bike...and now that I’ve started growing gills, you can hardly get me out of the water!!! Diving has become a passion with the first breath from a regulator, and it’s all thanks to your wonderful instructors.
