Scuba Diving

If you've never tried a dive before, or are thinking of learning how to dive then Cairns is the best destination to start. The region has an unrivalled reputation of being the premier learn to dive destination in Australia, and there are many reasons why. Our tropical climate lends itself as a fantastic destination for beginners with warm, clear waters and excellent visability, which on average is usually between 15-20 metres. From September through to February the conditions tend to be comfortable and calm, and with the Great Barrier Reef's conservative depths, make this an ideal spot for novices. Queensland has some of the highest safety standards in the world, and dive operators are required to conform to strict health and safety regulations specified by the Queensland Government. Our dive instructors and operators are some of the world's most experienced and awarded, providing first class tuition, equipment and safety standards.

Introductory Diving

For those who are curious about giving scuba diving a try, then an Introductory dive is the first step. It requires no previous diving experience, all equipment and tuition is provided, and your dive instructor will be with you at all times throughout the dive. Most reef trips offer the option to include an intro dive in your day. The only requirement is that you are 12 years old or more and you will be asked to fill out some paperwork, including a medical statement. On the journey out to the reef your dive instructor will give you a dive briefing outlining the equipment, hand signals, basic procedures and some of the marine life you may encounter. Group sizes are a maximum of 4 divers to 1 instructor, providing you with personalised attention and assurance. Once at the reef your instructor will run through the basic skills again in the water, then when you feel comfortable, your instructor you will take you on a short shallow dive around beautiful coral gardens.  The dive generally lasts 30 minutes depending on your air to a maximum of 12 metres/40 feet. After your dive experience, you’ll get a PADI Certificate as a memento of your underwater adventure. This certificate is not a qualification - it is simply a memento of one of the best experiences of your life.

Learn to Scuba Dive

If you want to learn to scuba dive, then the first step is to take a PADI Open Water Diver course. Cairns has a number of purpose built dive training centres, with courses starting daily, some in different languages too. This practical course is designed to improve your diving skills and to give a deeper understanding of the principals of diving and diver safety. Within a few days, you can be enjoying the underwater world.

A 4 Day Learn to Dive Course comprises of 2 days pool & theory and 2 day trips to the reef to complete the open water dives. Four dives will complete your open water diver training. The 4 day learn to dive course is an ideal option for those short of time, or who would prefer a land based course. Highly recommended however is the 5 Day PADI Open Water dive course, this is by far the most popular option. The adventure of learning to dive, as well as staying out on the reef for 3 days and 2 nights onboard a liveaboard vessel, is quite unique.

Pro Dive Cairns is Cairns most recognized and highly awarded dive school. Courses start daily at their centrally located, purpose built training centre. The centre provides some of the best diver training facilities available in Australia, with 6 air conditioned classrooms and 2 large 4 metre deep heated diver training pools. Following two days’ pool and theory training with your instructor, you will then experience the adventure of three exciting days on the Great Barrier Reef. The 5 day learn to dive course includes 9 dives which gives you the opportunity, once you are certified, to enjoy some dives with your buddy at leisure, for many this is the highlight of the course. Courses in German and Japanese are also available.
