Brisbanes best IDC
Visit Date: December 2010
Mick and his helpful crew helped get me through my IDC and IE. The pace of the course is perfect and there is plenty of variety with classroom, pool and open water sessions spread out over the course.
The thing that struck me as being different from most IDCs I have looked into is that they didn't just show me what I needed to know to get through the exams... they prepared me to be a SCUBA instructor.
This course stands head and shoulders above the rest.

Fantastic course, the best one to date!! Really opened my mind to thinking about diver safety and rescue! Challenging at times but so much fun! Great bunch of people met on course with a professional, well managed team of instructors. A great facility to continue your education!!!! I will be using Brisbane Dive Academy again, for sure!!! Thanks guys!

A big thanks to the staff at BDA, they helped me make my dreams come true. I loved the open water course, there friendly and helpful approach made it so easy to settle my nerves, and made my course so enjoyable. Thanks again guys I will be back soon. A+++

Great People To dive with!
Visit Date: May 2009
I am biased as I am now an instructor with BDA - But when I first met with Mick and Ian I was very much a novice diver trying to find my way and decide what I wanted to do. I very quickly got going on courses and specialities which lead to master scuba Diver rating very quickly. I have always found that with Mick and Ian you get what you give - if you are into it and keen then they will help you all the way - they put the Fun into their job so that the customers benefit. As an instructor now I, along with the many DM's and new Instructors, try to do the same.
You will always walk away smiling and guaranteed to have fun whatever you do with BDA - courses, day trips or holidays!
Dive right in!!

Strictly speaking, we don't publish reviews which are submitted by members of staff associated with a dive centre. However, we've decided that this one is relevant as the reviewer is simply talking about his experience of being trained by BDA.

I recently completed my rescue course with the guys at Brisbane Dive Academy and can't praise the team enough. All of the staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable, with nice and relaxed training methods which makes absorbing all the information you need to that much easier. I can't recommend Brisbane Dive Academy enough and am so happy with the level of training that I received that I'm booked in to start my divemaster training already!
