I passed my Open Water PADI Certification there, the team was awesome and the price more affordable than other club. Mind to organize it at the beginning of your trip, because you will need some days to complete the e-learning before the 2 days practice ;-) Thank you for all the nice people of the Manly Dive Center !

We were planning to do two shore dives, however, we ended up doing only one. When booked, I made it clear that we are experienced divers, one advanced, one open water.

Took my two boys, 12 and 15 so the three of us could learn to dive together. I thought I'd be totally cool about it but as it turns out when we did our sea dive I was very nervous about the 12 yo.

Staying in Manly

Neighbourhood Profile
A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants as well, especially along the family-oriented areas like Shelly Beach. An excellent way to experience Manly is to rent a bike and explore the dedicated bike paths and off road trails. The North Head National Park is another must-see. Located on the southern tip of Manly, North Head National Park offers great bushwalks and panoramic views of the city.
