Many of our guests tell us they just can’t find the time to learn to dive during their busy work schedules. And, what better place to learn to dive than at a world-class destination while on vacation? PADI‘s new “Dive Today” program changes the old fashion way of teaching. Mad Fish Dive Centre‘s course has you diving a real dive site on the Great Astrolabe Reef the afternoon of your first day.
