Owner description: NB Scuba is based in Mclaren Vale South Australia,10minutes away from Port Noarlunga. Conveniently located on the Fleurieu Peninsula where some of the best dive sites are, including theEX-HMAS Hobart shipwreck,Second Valley and Rapid Bay where the famous Leafy sea Dragons can be found. We are a small business that pride ourselves on providing safe and fun-filled courses at affordable prices. You can also do one of our highly recommended Leafy sea dragon tours and Experience the Magical, Mysterious and Mesmerizing Leafy Sea Dragon in its own habitat. These Mystic creatures are getting rarer to see now,so get a guided tour with one of our highly experienced guides. Come dive at the Rapid Bay Jetty and see all the weird and wonderful critters Blue ring octopus ,eagle rays ,weedy sea dragons ,dumbling squid,cuttle fish,port jackson sharks ,shuffel noise sharks frog fish ,worty prowfish to name a few thats this amazing dive site has to offer see the Leafys in all their Glory. price $180 per person and 50%off each person after that,so group of 2 is $270 .group of 3 is $360 and so on.All inclusive of full gear hire and tanks for either 1 or 2 extra long dives. We are a home based business so On the day ye everything is well planned and organised but done at a more leisurely pace and we have very long dives as a result of this as We are here to make sure u get value for money and have a lots of fun and to give you the very best possible leafy tour experience .. So no strict set regimented schedules like the other operators do making everything feel rushed and hurried making for shorter dives etc..also we are the only operator to use gear trolleys to and from the dive site .making for a much more enjoyable experience instead of walking with all the gear on your back . We also offer special summer weekend rates for small groups so come see the leafy in all its glory. dont DELAY BOOK today!

“awesome leafy sea dragons”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

Diving with NB Scuba is an awesome experience! In two years time, the guy always saw leafy sea dragon during his dives at Rapid Bay Jetty. Nate drove us from his house in mc laren vale to the jetty. He knows a lot of the underwater life and we had a great time chatting with him during the one hour trip. Had an amazing experience underwater, water is colder compared to Cairns, but the underwaterlife is absolutely great! Big variety of creatures I never saw before, leafy sea dragons, pipe fish, nudi branches, cuttle fish, zebra fish, bulls eye fish, giant crabs, etc. The perfect way to get value for money because NB Scuba offers the cheapest guided tours!

“Learn to Scuba!”
Reviewed 26 March 2013

I have been for a few dives with Nate at NB Scuba and I received my Open Water under his instruction. He is a fantastic instructor that will always make sure you're feeling comfortable and and at ease in the water. He is also extremely passionate about the sea life and you will find him pointing out South Australia's Leafy Sea Dragons if you're lucky!! He is also really reasonably priced. I would and have recommended him to many people and will continue to do so.

“Leafies with Nathan”
Reviewed 18 March 2013

Excellent trip with Nathan in Rapid bay and a dream fulfilled with 3 leafy sea dragons spotted by the specialist eyes of Nathan.
Dives are pro and very nicely priced compared to other dive shop. SO don't hesitate a second to call Nathan.
