Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
Want to add a new skill to your repertoire? How about becoming a fully certified Scuba Diver? Plunge down under and explore the magnificence of the underwater world of any eco system in the world after completing this course. It includes 2 local shore dives and 2 dives at Julian Rocks.
This course is broken down into three sections. Firstly, you will complete online training for the theory components covering the basic principles of scuba diving which is necessary before gearing up and getting into the water. Following this you will begin the pool training to practice basic scuba skills and get comfortable with the equipment you will be using in the water. It's a completely unusual experience to be able to breathe under water and it does take a little while to master the breathing techniques. When the basics are mastered in the pool you will head out to Julian Rocks with your instructor for 4 dive's and practice all of your newly learnt skills in the open water environment. There are a total of 4 dives for the course and 2 are local shore dives and 2 are out at Julian Rocks over the course of the 3 days, which will allow you plenty of time to gain confidence and build up your skill level.
Get yourself face to face with sea turtles, tropical fish, blue gropers and wobbegongs. Feel at one with nature as you glide over coral and through schools of colourful fish. Julian Rocks nature reserve is home to over 400 species of fish, three difference species of sea turtles (Green, Hawksbill and Loggerhead), a variety of rays and corals so each dive will offer an entirely new experience. Here the tropical Coral Sea collides with the nutrient-enriched temperate currents of the southern Tasman Sea, resulting in an unique mixture and incredible abundance of marine life.
After the course you will proudly be Open Water certified meaning you can dive at any time without the guidance of an instructor.
Those under 18 must be accompanied by a full paying parent/guardian.
This is a small personal tour with minimum 4 participants and a maximum of 8.
This experience may be cancelled if sea and weather conditions are deemed unsuitable. You will be notified if the experience will not go ahead.
Please bring your swim wear and a towel - all dive equipment will be provided for you.
If you are travelling from 45 minutes to an hour or more away on the day of the course it is recommended you call the provider day before to check conditions for your course.
This experience is located in Julian Rocks Marine Park, Byron Bay.
