Overview
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.
Day 1
Classroom
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.

Then it's back to the hotel for a good night's sleep before heading out to the Great Barrier Reef the next day.
