Refresher course

If you haven’t been diving for a year or more, depending on your experience level, it may be necessary to complete a refresher course before your dive at Wolf Rock. This ensures you are well prepared to have a safe and great day of diving with us. 

Wolf Rock Dive offers refreshers for $120 which includes a theory and pool session taking around 3 hours, longer if you need more time. 

All courses have a theory element. There are two options available for the home study:

Purchase the manual from the shop in Rainbow Beach the day before the dive course (a lot of people that are traveling choose this option).
Or, purchase the on-line version, complete the theory at home then a quick review on your day of diving. You pay PADI the fee and pay us the balance.

Please note e-learning is not available for divemaster training with us.

PADI Specialities


The lure of the deep: It’s a rare diver that hasn’t felt the urge to dive deep. There’s something exciting and mysterious about exploring deeper dive sites while scuba diving. Sometimes it’s a wreck that attracts you below 18 metres, and on wall dives it may be a giant fan or sponge. As a rule, divers tend to be adventurous people, and deep diving can certainly be called that! Whether to see sharks, take photos, or explore different reefs; whatever it is, to scuba dive with confidence at depths down to 40 metres, you should take the PADI Deep Diver Specialty course.

Drift diving is a relaxing and enjoyable form of diving that offers an alternative to using lines and other techniques to move against strong currents.

It feels like flying – except that you’re underwater using scuba equipment. Drift diving can be relaxing and exhilarating at the same time. If this sounds like fun, then the Drift Diver course is for you.

Excellent buoyancy control is what defines skilled scuba divers. You’ve seen them underwater. They glide effortlessly, use less air and ascend, descend or hover almost as if by thought. They more easily observe aquatic life without disturbing their surroundings. You can achieve this, too. The PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty course improves the buoyancy skills you learned as a new diver and elevates them to the next level.

Side-mount diving is not a new concept, but its application has spread from cave diving to open water recreational diving. As we all know, having scuba tanks on your back isn’t a requirement for exploring the underwater world. Many scuba divers have discovered the joy of mounting cylinders on their sides. Side-mount diving gives you flexibility and streamlining options and presents you with a different approach to equipment configuration and a new set of skills to master. Plus, you don’t have to walk with heavy cylinders on your back – just enter the water, clip them on and go. Sound interesting?
