WHAT YOU CAN SEE DURING YOUR DIVES
The visibility varies between 3 and 15 metres.
Perth Ocean always chooses the best dive site according to the weather, so you have the best and calmest conditions.
There is lots of soft and algaes where our favourite animal likes to hide: The sea horse.
It is also very common to see octopus, lion fish, sea stars, sea urchins, nudi branchs, small rays, crabs, cray fish, prawns, schools of fish like herrings or yellow tails, butterfly fish, cuttle fish. Occasionally and depending on the dive site, we encounter dolphin, sea lion, hawksbill turtle, squids, bull stingray, trevally, wrecks of small boats or planes, small sharks like grey nurse, wobbegong, or port Jackson.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are there sharks, and are they dangerous?
Yes, there is sharks in the Ocean.
Out of more than 500 species of sharks recorded in the world, less than 10 are known to possibly attack humans (like great white, tiger, mako or oceanic shark); they are deep water sharks that do not usually go to shallow water we dive in during the course.
Can I take photos or videos?
Yes, and you will be encouraged to do so if you have chosen the photography or videography specialty!
Can I fail the level 2 advanced diver program and not obtain my certification?
The level 2 advanced program is very easy if you listen to and follow the instructions, and if you fail an exercise, you can practice and do it again.
The theory is very minimal on the level 2 advanced we focus more on the practice, which just means dive, dive, dive, dive and dive!
On top of that your instructor is very experienced and patient, and will ensure you understood everything before assessing you;
Finally, your instructor will never put pressure on you or ask you to do something he/she estimates you are not ready for. It happens that we need to extend the course (one more day or dive) to let you go at your peace without stressing you.
In theses conditions it is very hard to fail your course!
What would be the exercises?
It will all depend on the specialities you chose. In the case of deep diving your instructor will insist on safety and decompression procedures, and for the navigation speciality it will be more about compass and orientation underwater…
