positive review  A fantastic experience all round! With a thorough eLearning course as preparation, the 3 day course led by the uber-professional Shane was pitched perfectly. The first day getting used to the gear and skills in the pool followed by 4 dives at Tweed Heads - ideal for beginners. Nothing felt rushed and with a huge onus on safety, the fun and dad jokes followed - Friends of mine who wanted to do a Refresher joined on the first day and were hugely impressed too - Looking forward to doing more courses and learning with Scuba Shane Diving in the future !

positive review  If you’re looking to get your foot in the door with scuba diving and love to do it with a small group to get more of the 1on1 feeling LOOK NO FURTHER !!!!!! I just recently finished doing my open water course with Shane and let me just say hands down one of the best instructors I have ever met !! He holds a 3 day corse oppose to a 2 day course like other companies. I found the three day course perfect for myself having a full day in the pool on The first day giving everyone enough time to get the skills need to go into the ocean with feeing rushed or under any pressure. The following 2 day where at the Tweed river dive site ( absolute stunning site ) holding 2 dives on both days. First day day going over the skills we learnt in the pool, and the second day going over the final drills on the first dive of the day and then the second dive was a cracker!!!! Having a tour of the dive site for 25mins seeing a lot of marine life. Shane is a patient and very thorough instructor using top quality equipment, integrated BCD’s, the best of the best steel tanks, good quality regs and computers. To top off a cracker course the dad jokes are second to none lol

positive review  Shane is a great scuba diving instructor and very enthousiastic (even with a group of 5 fairly quiet teenagers...). My two teenage daughters did their open water course with him recently and everything went smoothly and it was a lot of fun for them. I liked that the course went over 3 days as opposed to 2 days which is how most of the other companies do it. Glad we booked with Shane and plan to do more diving or courses with him later this year!
