Academy Of Scuba - A Family owned and operated dive business located in Camberwell.For Academy of Scuba and beyond, use our Melbourne online attractions planner to get the most from your Melbourne vacation.
Our Dive Club is what makes AOS such a fantastic place to be and work. Thursday nights see anywhere from 25-70 people heading down to Camberwell for a few quiet drinks, plan weekend dives and chill with so many other like minded people with the one life-changing skill in common – DIVING. With the BBQ on full, the kids running around and the gentle hum of everyone sharing stories, tips and a few opinions, it makes for a great laid back atmosphere to reignite the passion we all share.
Combine all that with our special presentations covering subjects as diverse as Spear-fishing, Cave Diving, O.S trips and Deep Wreck adventures, our Thursdays are always well attended and a happy place to be around.
Academy Of Scuba – is a PADI 5 Star IDC store covering the full gambit of all PADI courses and Specialties.
We also offer a full range of PADI Tec Rec, IANTD, TDI, and CDAA courses with some of Australia’s most highly regarded technical instructors.
We are lucky enough that our Dive Crew consists of some of the best instructors in the world, all of which specialise in their given area. Whether it be Cave, Side Mount, Deep, Wreck or Tri-Mix diving our instructors will take you through all the way and won’t stop until you reach the underwater goals you have set for yourself.
But let’s not forget where we all started... Academy Of Scuba also boasts an exceptional Open Water Instructional team second to none. Combined with a roster of highly trained Divemasters that go through an intensive (some of them would say excessive) internship our Open Water courses are limited to a ratio of 4:1 – meaning more one on one time in the water with your instructor. This will help you feel more confident during your course and prepare you for your underwater adventure to the highest of standards - far beyond international standards.
We carry a large range of Hollis, Tusa, Scubapro, Rob Allen and many more industry leading suppliers.
We don't just sell it - We use it...
Chuck in all the usual suspects – Nitrox fills, Boat charters, tank testing, a Service Lab (with 2 day turn around), in-house technicians, Dive trips both OS and Domestic, a beach club-house, Academy Of Scuba is truly your one stop Dive company in Victoria.
We pride ourselves on being the best, an industry leader - setting the standard. Let us show you how.

If you are planning to dive in Melbourne, don't miss out this school! I've been diving with them for 2 weeks and taking my Rescue course and was one of the best diving centres ever. Staff is really charming and helpful and you will have lots of fun at your dives and courses. Also marine life in Melbourne can't be better!
Recently completed my open water dive course, had an amazing experience learning how to dive. The team is great and an overall excellent experience 👍🏻
