ACWA's Snorkel Diver Program Overview-

Australia's Coastal Wilderness Adventures are excited to announce a new offering in 2016. After a successful start to our tour operation we have now decided to expand into education with our new Snorkel Diver Training program. The program will be taught in accordance to the AUSDIVE Snorkel Diver guidelines that meet the national standard SISOSNK201A within the national qualifications framework. AUSIDIVE are an Australian owned and operated company that offer expert educational services and certification in the areas of Snorkelling and Sucba diving in Australia and abroad. By signing up for an AUSIDIVE endorsed program you can be guaranteed that you will be provided with the very best educational resources and professional teaching/guidance whilst on your journey to becoming a confident and well informed ocean person. 

ACWA's Snorkel Diver Program is designed to give students the knowledge and practical experience required to safely participate in snorkelling activities in the presence of a similarly qualified or experienced snorkel diver. Essentially, it is your ticket to learn how to safely explore the wonderful marine environment that surrounds our beautiful country with the fundamental knowledge and skills that will give you the  most enjoyment from your new found interest. 

The program consists of 3 theory sessions, 1 pool based skills session, and 4 ocean dives. During the program you will be subject to ongoing assessment in all of the areas (both theoretical and practical) and signed off on each section along the way by your instructor. Given successful completion of the program you will be certified as an AUSIDIVE Snorkel Diver which is a national recognised certification.

However, the program is not all work no play. During your time with ACWA you will be taken to the very best snorkelling locations on the Far South Coast.
