SDI Open Water Diver

Why learn to dive with Deep Blue Ventures?

Because you shouldn't settle for second best just because it’s cheap. In the end, you want to be comfortable, safe and well looked after. So let the professionals at DBV ensure that you are getting the most out of your diving experiences. Your safety, comfort and enjoyment are paramount to your satisfaction and the staff at DBV is committed to these principles without compromise.

There are many claims by many other facilities; our claim is that we are the No.1 training facility in the state of Victoria. We can back our claim up by the fact that DBV certifies twice as many divers every year than our closest competitor.  Also, our customers keep coming back and this is further substantiated by the fact that we have a continuing education retention rate of 110%. This means that out of every ten divers we teach to dive, 11 come back and do more diving and enrol in other dive courses with us. Our divers keep coming back - the true gauge of customer satisfaction!

DBV caters for all aspects of diving from training, servicing, dive travel, technical diving, boat charters and much more. We do not want to have the most students, we strive to have the best trained students. As we take great pride in our training, we only employ the very best instructors who are both experienced and patient to guarentee your safety and ensure you exit the course full of confidence.

So if safety and confidence through proper training is important to you, don't sell yourself short! Let DBV start your diving career in the right way!
