Operating for 27 Years in the same South Australian family, Underwater Sports Diving Centre is a fully accredited multi award-winning PADI 5-Star (IDC) Instructor Development Centre. Owned by David & Jolie Gordon, who have both grown up in Adelaide, it is a truly South Australian, family owned and run business.

We are your one-stop dive shop in Adelaide, offering PADI diving courses from Learn-to-dive through to Professional PADI Divemaster and PADI Instructor courses.

We are a Marine Park Accredited Tour Operator, and we offer Leafy Seadragon Diving Tours, Marine Park Accredited Boat Tours, and ex-HMAS Hobart dives. We are proud to offer tours on our own purpose built, fully surveyed dive & day tour vessel Alladin.

Alladin is 8.9m in length, Aluminium Hull, with step-through rear door for easy exit, and a ladder designed so you can climb in still wearing your dive fins. It is surveyed to carry up to 12 passengers plus 2 crew, but our tours are often capped at smaller numbers to provide a more comfortable and personalised experience.

We are fully accredited to service Scuba Equipment, and Hydro Test Scuba Tanks, and BA Cylinders here on-site, and we provide triple filtered Air & Enriched Air Nitrox fills.

We are committed to quality and personalised service, and to giving you the safest and most enjoyable diving experience possible.

PADI Asia Pacific awarded us for ‘Outstanding Contribution to Continuing Education’ in 2010, 2012, 2015, 2016, and 2018, and ‘Outstanding Contribution to Entry Level Training’ in 2020. Other awards include “Oceanic SA Metro Dealer of the Year” in 2012 and 2013, and “Scubapro Award for Professionalism and Excellence in Customer Service” in 2012 and 2013. We have many 5 Star Reviews on both Google and Facebook, and we strive to give every customer our best customer service.

With our Instructors’ additional qualifications, we are also able to offer you Nationally Recognised CPR, First Aid, and Emergency Oxygen Provider Training.

Our social dive club is available exclusively for our regular shoppers and divers to join, to receive exclusive discounts, invitations to events and access to fully escorted trips within South Australia, Interstate and Overseas. Membership is $35pp, paid annually on the anniversary of you joining.
