Tour Description

2 DAYS ON THE BOAT - 5 DIVES

This course provides you with the theoretical skill and the practical skill that you require to dive anywhere in the world.
Your professional instructor will help you through the learning process. Each new skill gets you closer to the day you board our boat for your liveaboard dive trip. Your open water dive course is split up into three sections.

Theory gives you the knowledge required to dive in open water conditions. This takes the form of classroom presentations and lectures by the instructor in the comfort of our new air-conditioned classrooms.

Confined water training takes place in our gas-heated pool at our state of the art diver training centre, during which time you will master the skills of diving.

Open water dives will be conducted from the safety of the Kangaroo Explorer - your floating hotel, while staying on the Great Barrier Reef.

At Cairns Dive Centre, the emphasis is on increased training in actual dive conditions. The basis of our training concept is thorough practice of scuba skills in the controlled environment of our new diver training centre. These skills combined with the understanding of safe diving practices and theory, prepare you for the ultimate Great Barrier Reef experience.
