NB Scuba is based in Mclaren Vale South Australia,10minutes away from Port Noarlunga. Conveniently located on the Fleurieu Peninsula where some of the best dive sites are, including theEX-HMAS Hobart shipwreck,Second Valley and Rapid Bay where the famous Leafy sea Dragons can be found. We are a small business that pride ourselves on providing safe and fun-filled courses at affordable prices. You can also do one of our highly recommended Leafy sea dragon tours and Experience the Magical, Mysterious and Mesmerizing Leafy Sea Dragon in its own habitat. These Mystic creatures are getting rarer to see now,so get a guided tour with one of our highly experienced guides. Come dive at the Rapid Bay Jetty and see all the weird and wonderful critters Blue ring octopus ,eagle rays ,weedy sea dragons ,dumbling squid,cuttle fish,port jackson sharks ,shuffel noise sharks frog fish ,worty prowfish to name a few thats this amazing dive site has to offer see the Leafys in all their Glory. price $180 per person and 50%off each person after that,so group of 2 is $270 .group of 3 is $360 and so on.All inclusive of full gear hire and tanks for either 1 or 2 extra long dives. We are a home based business so On the day ye everything is well planned and organised but done at a more leisurely pace and we have very long dives as a result of this as We are here to make sure u get value for money and have a lots of fun and to give you the very best possible leafy tour experience .. So no strict set regimented schedules like the other operators do making everything feel rushed and hurried making for shorter dives etc..also we are the only operator to use gear trolleys to and from the dive site .making for a much more enjoyable experience instead of walking with all the gear on your back . We also offer special summer weekend rates for small groups so come see the leafy in all its glory. dont DELAY BOOK today!

Nate was a friendly, flexible dive instructor who we felt really comfortable with. He got us kitted up with gear, gave a great brief and was calm and clear underwater. Will be coming back to dive again with Nate in the future.
