Back in November 2016 I went for a “Try Dive” with Southport Snorkel & Dive just to see how things went. The most participation with water and the ocean that I had undertaken, was a bit hit n miss with snorkeling really. I think it took about 10 mins breathing under water in the pool that I made my decision that I wanted to take my experience further, and so I then booked an “Open Water 20” course. It was a great and very memorable fun time indeed. I must thank Dave & Clint for their support, understanding and definitely their encouragement with all of the training especially the anxious moments that I experienced. I am used to old school teaching methods where you do it, or you fail! Whereas, these guys would not let you fail, but indeed, assure you of your abilities and they seemed to know just how to relieve any pressure, even my nightmare experience with clearing my mask, something that I thought would have stopped me from continuing with the course. This was easily solved with the amazing perseverance of Clint and especially Dave who could see my frustration but would not see me fail. Needless to say, I cracked it and went on to pass my “Open Water 20” course which was a proud moment for me. I have since that day, completed 19 amazing dives and look forward to many more. Each dive is an adventure! So why not sign up for a “Try dive” yourself? You have nothing to lose. . . . . . but soooo much to gain. A big thank you to the awesome professional team at Southport Snorkel & Safari. Phillip
A few months ago I completed the “Underwater 20 ” scuba course with Dave and the gang. They are an Awesome team of professional divers.
I have only ever stepped foot in the ocean a handful of times in my life, and learning to Scuba Dive, was way out of my comfort zone, completely. Dave and Clint were the two people instructing me and reassuring me every step of the way, that I could do this, and put my fears to rest ( very patient people indeed ). I had what I would call “Fight or Flight”, anxiety. 3 months later…. I own all my gear ( which Dave helped me find the exact type of BCD that would suit me, comfort wise) since then I have completed 19 dives (feeling totally comfortable) …..Thank you Snorkel and Dive Southport, I will always recommend you and your crew….Cheers KarenKaren
Dave and his team are professional, well organised, friendly and extremely helpful. They organise excellent dive trips and are always willing to answer any dive or scuba related questions. I really look forward to attending more dive safaris with Dave and his team. read more

I recently did a refresher dive with David after a very long absence from Scuba Diving. Even though I was extremely nervous David made me feel at ease and very comfortable so that I could get back in the water and enjoy the dive. Thanks to David I am seriously considering returning to regular diving, and I would highly recommend Snorkel and Dive Safari Southport for anyone wishing to give it a go! read more
