Our multi gas fill panel is second to none in Australia. Our air is analysed every month, 2/3rds more often than required by the Australian Standard AS3848.2. Our Gas Purity Test Report results are displayed for you to inspect, as required by the Standard.

At The Scuba Doctor you get to park really close to the dive shop entrance. Even boat owners can use our drive in and park car and boat trailer area. Plus, we have a trolley you can borrow to make getting your cylinders in and out of the dive shop much easier.

Our dive lounge area, complete with Free Wi-Fi, TV, DVD, VHS entertainment and bar fridge, is used by customers to relax before dives, between dives, or just for a social drink and get together over nibbles after the days diving. We have tea, coffee, soft drink and water for sale at reasonable prices.

Many divers and locals get together at The Scuba Doctor for Friday Night Drinks from 5 pm every Friday. If you're nearby, please drop in and join us.

In our Dive Lounge local diving history is passed down through the generations, legends are made and egos deflated, all with great humour and respect. While it may appear that some divers live in the dive lounge, they do actually go home at night. The use of these facilities is free of charge.
