Cairns, Australia

Learn to Dive - April 2020 to March 2021 (5 days / 4 nights. Incl. 9 dives)

Do it differently!
If you are thinking about taking the plunge and learning to dive, the 5-day PADI “Open Water Dive" course on the Great Barrier Reef is a really cool and different choice.

The adventure of staying out on the reef for three days and two nights and the five extra recreational dives makes this course unmatched for experience and value. This dive course consists of two days of theory and pool training on land followed by a three day / two night liveaboard dive trip, including nine dives. You will head out on the boat after finishing the classroom and pool sessions to end your course. This is followed directly by "fundiving" on the most famous reef in the world. 

The Great Barrier Reef is a Marine Park and World Heritage area. It is recognized as one of the world’s most unique and amazing marine spectacles and extends for 2300 kilometers along the northeastern coast of Australia. It consists of about 2900 individual reefs and covers an area the size of the United Kingdom. Its ecosystem supports the greatest concentration of life on this planet with its resident marine life including 1,500 species of fish, 350 different kinds of coral, 4000 species of mollusks and 10,000 species of sponges. It also provides breeding areas for humpback whales, sea turtles, dugong and seabirds. Hundreds of species of algae, including seaweeds, also live on the reef as a vital part of the reef system.
