Here at Scubafish, we specialise in making learning to scuba dive easy, safe and fun for people of all ages.

At Scubafish, we know that each person’s needs are unique. We give our student divers the amount of time and tuition they need in order to feel comfortable and confident before progressing to the next stage. We keep group sizes small to ensure you receive maximum benefit from your tuition. Our emphasis is on safety, fun and personal service within a relaxed and stress-free environment.

Scuba diving is a family activity that crosses generations, builds strong relationships and allows people of all ages to experience the awe-inspiring beauty of the underwater world.


Scubafish staff are comfortable, skilled and experienced in teaching children. Our Instructors realise that children often need more recognition, reassurance, praise and positive reinforcement than adults to remain focused and motivated. By being supportive, we intend to create a non-threatening and fun environment conducive to learning. We strive to inspire children to not only enjoy but protect our underwater world.
We stock dive equipment designed specifically for younger people, including smaller, lighter tanks, XXS BCD’s and wetsuits, kids masks, small fin sizes and even underwater toys!
Our Student to Instructor ratio is 2:1 for if any person in the group is below 12 yrs old!
