Description for the dive shop Melbourne Diving Services- Australia

Melbourne Diving Services enjoys the convenience of a store located close to the City CBD. Our Heidelberg outlet carries an extensive range of all the most popular equipment, is the centre for our equipment servicing and houses, our administration offices and knowledge development lecture rooms.
Melbourne Diving School is the longest established Diving school in Australia. Training courses comenced in the early 1950`s with technical assistance from the Royal Australian Navy. Aqua-lungs were not available in those days and divers received training in the use of closed circuit oxygen units of military origins. Our first students were members of what was to become the diving section of the Victorian Police Search and Rescue Squad. `Standard Dress` (Hard-Hat Helmet Diving) courses were also run by the school to train commercial divers for harbour and slavage work. From these early days we have seen Scuba Diving grow to what it is today - an exciting, safe and personally rewarding sport.

We have trained divers from all walks of life - including some well-known names in the diving industry! Let Melbourne Diving Services introduce you to the wonders and enjoyment of the underwater world. From your first steps into the water through to Advanced Technical diving, Melbourne Diving Services can help you achieve any level of diving proficiency.
