ProDive Cairns - PADI - 5 Day Learn to Dive Course

If you are thinking about taking the plunge and learning to dive, our 5 day PADI Open Water dive course is our most popular option for you to become a certified scuba diver. The adventure of staying out on the reef for three days and two nights and the five extra recreational dives makes this course unmatched for experience and value.

This dive course option consists of two days of theory and pool training then a 3 day 2 night liveaboard dive trip, which includes the opportunity of 9 dives.

Day 1 & 2 You will learn the basics of scuba diving, both classroom and pool, at our modern, purpose built diver training centre in Cairns. Both dive training pools are heated all year round for student comfort.

Day 3 - 5 You will spend out on the reef on one of our 3 multi million dollar live aboard dive boats. You will have the opportunity to do 9 dives on a variety of our exclusive Outer Reef dive sites. These dives consist of 4 training dives to complete your certification, then 5 additional recreational dives to enjoy your new skills and gain some experience. One of these five dives is a guided night dive. These extra dives, especially the night dive, will be a highlight of your dive trip.

On the night of day five, after your return from the reef you have the opportunity to join the crew from your trip for a farewell dinner at a local restaurant. (Dinner at own cost)

Some medical conditions may prevent you from diving. You will be required to obtain a dive medical certificate if you answer "yes" to any of the questions on the Medical Declaration form - The Dive medical must be valid within 90 days of commencing the course.
