Learn to Dive

  • 5Day(s)
  • Trip Code: COCLTD

The 5 day PADI ‘Open Water' dive course is by far the most popular way to learn to dive. The adventure of learning to dive combined with staying out on the reef for 2 nights onboard a boat is really unique. The course takes you to 9 of the Great Barrier Reef's best dive sites & features two days of classroom & in-pool training, then it's onto the live aboard boat for the actual reef diving. There's also plenty of time to snorkel, relax & just enjoy the reef experience.
