Let us take you scuba diving in Melbourne, Victoria today.
I purchased my wife a SCUBA course for her birthday, and as an additional bonus, I got to do it as well.
It has been a life long goal for both of us to learn to SCUBA , but it was with trepidation that we underwent the first day of training in the pool, after all, breathing underwater is an acquired somewhat unnatural skill.
Several times during the day, both my wife and I were just about to “pull the pin” when we couldn’t quite get the skills down pat.
I can honestly say that if it was not for Mark’s skills as not only an instructor, but as a very astute observer, we would have never persisted. Mark’s calm demenour, the very way he helped break down the skills into steps, and giving us the space and time to practice was key in getting us both through this very demanding day.
We ended the day exhausted, but with a sense of accomplishment.
Without Mark, we would not have completed the day successfully. For this, we are extremely grateful.
But Mark’s unique approach did not end there. After all, it’s a three day course.
Unfortunately, we had to reschedule the second day due to our busy work schedule. Mark’s attitude to this change was exceptional. Making sure that we set a date for the second day, and being nothing short of spectacular, Mark has accommodated this, all so we can complete the course and join pack of the SCUBA community.
Thanks Mark, we are very appreciative.

“Learning to dive in Melbourne, Australia with Aquability was an absolute pleasure. The water was a bit cold, but we got well-equiped to overcome the harsh conditions.
Although the water was a bit cold, we had perfect conditions when diving at Rye Pier and in the open water. Only one time we experienced bad visibility and therefore me and my buddy actually got lost from the rest of the group, but as we got taught by a great instructor btw (Andrew), we searched for the other group for 60 seconds before ascending to the surface. By taking the Open Water Padi Course at Aquability I now feel ready to go to the great barrier during the spring break. In overall an absolute pleasure taking the course through Aquability, with some great instructors! –

Thank you again for your patience and guidance on last week’s dive – It’s truly a reflection of the great ongoing support you and Mark continue to offer and makes for a seamless dive experience. I hope to back in the water with you again soon. – Ray B 29/12/16
