Jarrod and Lily were really supportive and helpful through out the course as I faced difficulties at every step. I would highly recommend Abyss Scuba Diving to every diver in and around Sydney especially if you are a first time diver. And also the world under there is beautiful.

It was a good idea to learn to dive in Sydney first as you don't waste your time learning how to clear your mask on the sand when you could be diving amoungst the coral and enjoying the best of the reef.

Thanks for the review. One of the great attractions of diving around Sydney is its abundant marine life. A recent study revealed that Sydney has more marine species than any other harbour in the world. Some 600 marine animals have already been identified and we can be sure that there are more to be found. There is lots of great... More
