That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
Discover what lies beneath the sea! This 2 or 3 day PADI open water course marks the beginning of your scuba diving adventures. A team of professional instructors and assisting Dive Masters provide a superlative environment for attaining your license to dive up to 18 metres below the sea!

This component enables you to develop skills and procedures of safe diving and to become comfortable with diving techniques before heading out for your open-water dives.
This special condensed course means that you can do all the practical work to become a certified scuba diver in just one weekend! Expert PADI dive instructors will show you everything you need to know to start off scuba diving. The course includes pool dives where you will learn and practice all the different skills which will soon have you breathing underwater and face to face with the fishes!
Once you have completed the pool sessions you will progress to the open water for 4 dives where you will start to discover the underwater world and may even meet the famous weedy sea dragon. All the theory, quizzes and exams for the course can be completed online in your own time.
