Whilst planning an Australian holiday we arranged 2 days diving with USDC. Jolie was excellent in replying to all our emails and solving any issues. She even arranged accomodation near the dive sites. We met Dave and Rick on the first morning and they were great at getting us sorted out and in the water asap. The main objective of the diving was to see Leafy Seadragons and this was achieved within 10 minutes on the first dive! The other dives were also brilliant. We can't recommend USDC more highly.

Dave and his crew from underwater sports were extremely professional and made me and everyone else on the boat feel welcome. He gave us some very insightful information about our dives and ensured we were there at a good time for a favourable dive with the tides

I was in the middle of my PADI certification when I had a conference booked in Adelaide. Since I was not certified, I signed up for a Discover Scuba with Underwater Sports. Booking the dive was no problem at all, very organized and efficient. On the day of the dive, Dave and Paul were excellent. The drive to the boat went by fast as we chatted about Australia, kangaroos, and even politics. Dave made sure I got to see some free roaming kangaroos along the way. Once we got to the site Paul was my instructor and he was outstanding. He was patient and helped me work on buoyancy control. We dived at Lassiter's Reef and Rapid Bay Jetty. I saw not 1 but 3 leafy sea dragons! They are some of the most beautiful creatures on this planet! It was my first boat dive and Paul and Dave made it a comfortable and amazing experience! If I lived in Adelaide, I would definitely sign up for one of their dive trips, but unfortunately I am in Rhode Island! After the dive I wanted some T-shirts from the shop, but I did not have a chance to go to the shop. Jolie overnight mailed what I needed straight to my hotel before I left Australia. A+ service all the way around!

I learnt to dive with USDC back in 2016 from a recommendation and haven't looked back since. I went on to complete my advanced open water, nitrox and rescue course with great instruction. Can't forget the great experiences that I've had diving on the exHMAS Hobart! If you are new diver looking to start, USDC is the obvious choice.

If you're looking for the most enjoyable diving experience, whether to search for leafy sea dragons or just have some fun dives, don't bother looking any further! I couldn't be happier that I booked with Dave (owner/operator). Him and his divemaster Stew offered simply outstanding service. I got picked up from my front door, all of my rental gear was practically new and fit perfectly, the boat was clean and roomy, and he dropped me off back at home in time for dinner! If none of that appears to you, we saw 5 leafy sea dragons, seals, and dolphins! Not to mention the incredible view of the SA Coast. Thank you Dave and Stew for the best last day in Australia I could have asked for. It meant more than you know. Say hi to the Leafies for me!
