Diving is a sport the relies on development of muscle memory therefore the more you do the more quickly you progress. Many of our learn to divers start off at one session a week, and then as they progress they pick up additional sessions. The current schedule of Term Fees is available on our fees page here


It is important to point out that Diving SA does not offer make up lessons for lessons missed due to member's reasons.
