Me and my husband had just completed our OWD and our dives in Australia were the first after the course. We found great professionality and this allowed to have great fun. Nick, our instructor, was great!

“Excellent business, excellent divers”
Reviewed 16 August 2010

Training under Ross Anderson at the Tech Dive Academy allowed me to become a better and more responsible diver than I would have ever been had I trained elsewhere. Additionally, Mark Miller of TDA went out of his way repeatedly to ease my transition to the area. I would recommend the academy for any dive training, be it recreational or technical. Again, had I not attended Tech Dive I wouldn't be the diver I am today.
