5 Day PADI Open Water Dive Course

    This tour is currently taking a break from operation and will be back in 2022

    There is no better place to Learn to Dive than Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.
    If you are thinking about taking the plunge our 5 day PADI “Open Water” dive course is by far the most popular way to do it. The adventure of learning to dive as well as staying out on the reef for 3 days and 2 nights on one of our premium live aboard vessels is quite unique.

    The Cairns diving training facilities are under one roof, which is one of the many reasons we have got the  PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Centre status and PADI 5 Star Career Development status – one of the highest ratings awarded to any Dive Store as recognition of continued Diver training excellence. All our day trip dive and snorkel sites are on The Great Barrier Reef’s Outer Reefs. These reefs (Norman, Saxon, and Hastings) are all part of the larger Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, but also benefit from healthier waters, no freshwater runoff, strict access, and more of the typical tropical reef critters we all have come to love!

    Deep Sea Divers Den’s friendly, personalized service, combined with the warm tropical waters of the Great Barrier Reef, are the perfect combination for one of the very best PADI Open Water courses available
