There's no better place in the world to learn to dive, then put your new found skills to the test, than Australia's stunning Great Barrier Reef. On this five day break, which begins and ends in the tropical city of Cairns, you will spend two days scuba diving training at a diving centre pool. Then it's off to the Barrier Reef for three days of action when you can qualify as an open water diver while completing a series of descents on the spectacular reef.
You will be picked up at your hotel by one of the Pro Dive team to begin your course. First stop is the Dive Training Centre where you will begin two days on intensive scuba training in the special pool. Experienced instructors will help everyone from beginners to semi-experienced divers and prepare them for the reef adventure to come. In the evening you will be taken back to your hotel in Cairns.
It's back to school again today to make sure you are fully prepared for your open water dives. You will again be picked up at your hotel and driven to the diving centre for more instruction in the pool. You will be taught all about your scuba gear and how to use it and given a comprehensive guide to underwater safety. Then it's back to the hotel for a good night's sleep before heading out to the Great Barrier Reef the next day.
Today you are again picked up from your hotel but instead of going to the diving centre pool you are taken to join fellow divers on board one of the Scubapro vessels and then it's off to the Outer Great Barrier Reef. While on the reef you take part in your four training/qualifying dives, which completes your PADI Open Water Certification. All meals are included during your two night stay on the boat.
Another memorable day diving on the Outer Great Barrier Reef. After completing your four compulsory qualifying dives you are able to enjoy five more dives as a recreational diver, one of which is an adventurous night dive guided by your instructor. All these dives on the Great Barrier Reef will be truly spectacular and memorable and the highlight of your course. Tonight enjoy dinner on board and swap stories.
Today you complete your PADI dive course and enjoy some fun dives before you are brought back to Cairns late in the afternoon and dropped off at your hotel. Tonight you are invited to join fellow passengers and crew at a local restaurant for a farewell dinner which is a memorable end to a memorable trip. This dive break makes a great add on to any holiday in Australia for anyone who has always wanted to learn to scuba dive.
