If you are thinking about taking the plunge the 5 day PADI “Open Water” dive course is by far the most popular way to do it. The adventure of learning to dive as well as staying out on the reef for 3 days and 2 nights on one of Cairns’ premium live aboard vessels is quite unique.
5 day courses (2 land days and 3 days at sea) or 4 day courses (E-Learning, then 1 day pool and 3 days at sea) are available.
The 3 day 2 night open water section of the course includes 9 dives on some of the best dive sites the Outer Great Barrier Reef has to offer as well as plenty of time to snorkel, relax and really enjoy the reef experience. All this makes this course unmatched for experience and value.
2 days pool and classroom then board Scubapro that leaves and returns back to Cairns after 3 days at sea. You’ll have the opportunity to participate in 9 dives on a variety of our 16 exclusive dive sites on the outer Great Barrier Reef. Your first 4 dives will complete your open water certification and then as certified diver you are able to undertake up to 5 more recreational or pleasure dives. One of these dives is a guided night dive!
If you are short on time then you can take the E-Learning option where you compete the theory at home then compete 1 day on land (confined water practice) before going out to sea on the 3 day 2 night trip.
For those customers who speak languages other than those mentioned below, PADI textbooks are available in a range of other European and Asian languages.
Scubapro has one price for the course and cabins are twin or double with shared bathroom for 2 cabins.
This three day Referral program is conducted in conjunction with one of the 3 day 2 night live aboard dive trips. You will have the opportunity to 9 dives over the duration of the trip.
Once you’ve completed the 4 dives you need to do to finish your PADI Open Water certification you can then participate in 5 extra recreational dives, including a guided night dive.
Courses start Monday to Thursday for the 5 day option.
If you wanted to take the 4 day E-Learing option then only Tuesdays and Fridays are available.
