5 Day Learn to Dive PADI Dive course and Liveaboard with Pro Dive Cairns
From $1120pp

If you’re thinking about booking in your Open Water PADI Dive Course, we think it’s important to understand what you’re getting for your money.

When we say that Pro Dive Cairns offers one of the most comprehensive Open Water PADI dive Courses on the planet, we aren’t making it up. You’ll find it difficult to find any experienced diver in the world who hasn’t heard of Pro Dive and their incredible reputation. Pro Dive is a world famous dive company that attracts experienced divers and snorkelers from all over the globe looking to hone their skills and explore the incredible Great Barrier Reef. Expect world class training facilities, instructors, and equipment in your first two days as you kick the course off in the classroom with theory and pool sessions. Here, you’ll learn the all-important skills you need in the water. This is followed by a once in a lifetime 3 day, 2 night liveaboard on the Great Barrier Reef aboard a multi-million dollar, purpose built dive boat featuring twin/double cabins, air-conditioning, and free WIFI all for a maximum of 32 passengers.

You’ll have the option to explore some of their 19 exclusive dive and snorkel sites. You won’t dive more than one or two times at the same site either. Got to love the variety. Included in your trip is everything (apart from the kitchen sink); all meals, passport photos, dive insurance, 9 dives, and all the equipment you can think of. All meals are freshly prepared on board as part of the all-inclusive course. The experience of combining your dive training with a multi-night liveaboard is like nothing else. Learning really doesn’t get much better than this.
