Australian Diving Instruction, was founded by Stephen and Kathleen Mabbett in 1986 when Stephen Emigrated to Australia in 1984 and realised that it was very easy to Learn to Scuba Dive and even easier to purchase your equipment but what then? Stores were to busy and making sales, and were not really concerned what the diver did once the purchase was made, Stephen then decided that training divers and just selling them equipment was not showing the Divers the wonders of the underwater world and encourage them to continue their Diving Education, This led to the birth of Australian Diving Instruction a place were Divers came to Dive,
A meeting of all the past students of Stephen took place in the smoke room of the Carrington Hotel in Geelong believing that only 10 to 15 would turn up, 137 came to the first meeting and from then to now the Dive Club has always increased its membership when asked by many what makes Australian Diving Instruction different to all other Clubs my comment is:
