Australian Diving Instruction (ADI) was founded by Stephen and Kathleen Mabbett in 1986. They realised that it was very easy to Learn to Scuba Dive & even easier to purchase your equipment but what then?

Stores were to busy making sales, and not really concerned what the diver did once the purchase was made, Stephen then decided that training divers & showing the Divers the wonders of the underwater world and encourage them to continue their Diving Education was more important. ADI Dive club was born.

This gave divers and those seeking to Learn to Dive in Geelong & Melbourne a place to meet, become dive buddies, and share their stories of the underwater world, which encouraged them to continue their Diving Education. ADI is a Club that became a Store which is not the same as a Store that has a Club, which sets ADI apart from the rest

ADI offers a complete & Professional, PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Store, with PADI Courses from Learn to Dive, right through to PADI Dive Instructor, as well as Technical diving, Work Place First Aid and Oxygen Courses.
