WHY DIVE WITH US

At Frog Dive, we are a company built by experienced divers for divers. Funded in 1985, we are one of the oldest dive shops in Sydney providing the best deals in scuba gear and training. We are active divers, constantly diving in Australia and overseas in all conditions. Our team is knowledgeable in all types of diving and have the experience to go with it.

YOUR SAFETY IS OUR PRIORITY

Scuba diving has some risks, but it can be minimised with proper training and guidance. Our instructors are experienced divers who are keen to teach good techniques, safe practices and procedures, as well as have a good time! We want you to keep diving! Diving can be a bit overwhelming, especially on your first time. We will make sure you are comfortable and confident with your diving skills. Our team of experts is always available to help you before, during and after your course.

SMALL CLASSES

To ensure the safety and the good time of our students, we run our classes in small groups. With a maximum number of 8 students per class and with an Instructor and Divemaster per group, you will have the attention and time of our staff to develop your diving skills, no rush.

If you are wondering what’s the differential that makes Frog Dive the best dive shop to Learn How to Dive with: small groups, world class diving training and an internationally recognised certification agency. That means proper training, not overload student/instructor ratio and you can go diving anywhere in the world after, without hassles.

UNLIMITED TRAINING

Diving is fun! But is also hard work. At Frog Dive we are committed to creating the best divers, with good diving practices. Our courses are designed so you have enough time to learn your skills whilst still having a good time. If after the days of the course you or your instructor believe there's an area for improvement, you can do and re-do the classes as many times as you wish! No rush, no hassles.

UNDERCOVER HEATED POOL

We are one of the very few dive shops in Sydney that have their own in-store pool. A diving purpose build pool with depth up to 3 meters and at 28oC, we use it from Learn How to Dive sessions to Try Rebreather dives for the curious ones.
