Come to Cairns and learn to scuba dive on our new day boat or join us for classroom and liveaboard scuba diving adventures from 2 days up to 7 days. 

Dive the world famous Cod Hole and see the giant Potato Cod fish. This is the place Sir David Attenborough says is his most favourite place to visit in the whole world due to its bio-diversity and the sheer magnitude of the reef system and its inhabitants.

If you are interested in learning how to scuba dive or would like to further your diving skills with PADI learn-to-dive and advanced diver courses, call us and we can arrange the best dive course for you in beautiful Cairns and Tropical North Queensland.

Great Barrier Reef diving courses vary from a four day open water course that includes two days theory in a pool in Cairns followed by two day-trips to the Outer Barrier Reef to apply your skills, no accommodation provided. You will return to Cairns each day after the reef tour.

The 4 day open water course day trips now include one outer reef day trip on board AquaQuest & a day trip to the Frankland Islands.

Transfers to and from your Cairns City accommodation are included. All training dives and use of equipment, wetsuits and torches are included as well as all meals while out at sea.

You may also do a four day liveaboard open water course that includes the two days theory in Cairns followed by a two day/one night liveaboard.

There is also a five day PADI course that includes two days of theory in Cairns and then a three day/two night liveaboard trip or finally a six day course that includes the two days of theory and a four day/three night trip to the Great Barrier Reef.

If you are already PADI certified you may want to try for your advanced dive certificate, your rescue diver certification or your Dive Master. Lucky for you, these advanced classes don’t contain any classroom sessions; it is all just practical fun. Your advanced course can be done via a liveaboard boat over one or two nights (11 dives during 2 night trip, 7 dives during 1 night.)

If you would like to get your rescue diver certificate you can choose from either a four or five day liveaboard course. PADI professional courses such as the Dive Master and Instructor Development course are also available. Again, all equipment, meal while at sea, certification and manuals and Cairns City transfers are included.

All courses depart from Cairns daily and are taught by friendly knowledgeable instructors and are offered in English, Korean and Japanese.
