  • You need to be comfortable in the water
  • A minimum age of 8 years applies.  
  • Every student under 18 needs to have a parent or a guardian sign a consent form

Group bookings, private courses or pick your own dates?

If you have a group of 3 or more, you can pick your own dates for the course. Or if you would like a private course for your children then that’s possible as well! For all group, school and private course bookings, please contact us to discuss details.

What to expect once you book your course

It is important that you complete the medical form and get clearance from your doctor if you answered “YES” to any of the forms before attending the session.

Once you book we’ll confirm your time and date. Just come along at the agreed time with your togs and towel.  We’ll provide the rest.

And of course if you have any questions then we are only a phone call or email away and always happy to help.  Contact us on 09 438 1075 or 0800 DIVE NZ or info@divenow.co.nz.
