Have you ever wondered what it's like to scuba dive? An introductory dive is a great way to find out! You will start with a little bit of theory that will take you through the equipment you will be using and some important information you need to have a fun and safe dive. You'll spend some time, with your instructor, in our purpose built dive pool where you'll learn a few basic dive skills and then you're off for a dive at one of our beautiful dive sites!

In our purpose built dive pool your instructor will teach you a few basic dive skills. Your instructor will guide you through them step by step and you'll find them useful during your dive. Your instructor will give you plenty of time to get used to being in the water. The skills you learn in the pool are:

  • How to use you BCD

  • Breathing underwater

  • Clearing water from your mask

  • Regulator clearing.

And you will get the chance to go for swim in the pool. Once your comfortable it's time to go for a dive at one of our dive sites around Magnetic island. Your instructor will guide you through the dive and show you why so many people take up this amazing activity. You'll be surprised just how easy it is to dive. After your introductory dive you will be ready to do your Open Water Course so you can start exploring the underwater world on your own!


SSI's Nitrox course will go through the theory behind diving with enriched air, how to test your tanks and your oxygen levels and includes 2 ocean dives off the island diving with Nitrox tanks.

The SSI Enriched Air Nitrox program will teach you how to safely plan and dive with enriched air mixtures of up to 40% oxygen. Diving with enriched air can increase your no-decompression limits, increase your safety, and reduce the required length of your surface intervals when compared to air. You will earn the SSI Enriched Air Nitrox 32% or 40% certification after completing this program.


Day 1

Starts in the classroom where you'll learn about dive theory.  Theory can be done online prior to the course by visiting and registering yourself with Pleasure Divers Magnetic Island. If the online theory is completed prior to the course the first day is a meet and greet and we go through any problems you may have had with the theory.

Alternatively you can do the theory at the shop. Your instructor will explain dive physics, physiology, and how you are affected underwater. Your Instructor will also take you through each section step-by-step, so that you have a complete understanding of dive theory. 

Day 2

Starts in the pool, getting you familiar with all the scuba equipment and helping you understand the basics of diving with some dive skills and practice. Before long you will be swimming like a fish and ready for the ocean. After lunch your Instructor will take you to one of our Island dive sites, for your first open-water dive. On this dive you will get a chance to get comfortable being in the ocean. After you have completed dive 1 you'll head back into ocean, for your second training dive where you will repeat many of the skills that you mastered in the pool.

Day 3

You're back into the ocean for your final 2 training dives. As you have already completed most of your skills on dive 2 you only have a few more skills on each dive. You will have plenty of time to relax and enjoy the sites. All that's left to do is to complete the theory and you’re CERTIFIED and ready to dive!


Your rescue diver course prepares you for a range of diving emergencies. It will show you how to handle problems that may happen to you or someone you are diving with. Your Instructor will also teach you ways to prevent problems before they occur. The Rescue Diver Course is fun & rewarding whilst having a serious side to it. The confidence that you gain will make all your diving activities more enjoyable as you'll be able to prevent and deal with most emergencies in the unlikely event one should occur.
