Take the next step in your diving journey and complete a certification whilst visiting the Great Barrier Reef. We offer both PADI and SSI Advanced Open Water, Open Water Referral, Refresher and Introductory Diving courses to help build confidence and expand your scuba skills. (Specialty Courses upon request)

The Advanced Course is our most popular and perfect to complete over two days. This is composed of 5 dives: deep dive, navigation, boat dive, night dive & peak performance buoyancy (possibility to swap bouyancy and boat dive for fish ID or photography). We offer this via SSI and PADI with prior e-learning kits emailed for you to easily complete at your convenience prior to boarding. We can also provide PADI book learning or SSI tablet e-learning kit on-board if you decide at the last minute. This just leaves the fun diving and physical learning part to complete with us.

This course is great value at just $395. (inc 5 x dives which works out at just $ 100 for your certification)

If you live somewhere chilly and haven’t been brave enough to dive in the lake to complete the four ocean dives of your Open Water course you can complete them here with us in the tropical warm waters of the Great Barrier Reef. This is the Referred Open Water course. All you need to do is send us a copy of your recreational dive medical and referral form displaying your training records for completion of all theory and pool sessions at least two weeks prior to travel.

Referred open water cost is $330 and includes 4x ocean dives and PADI or SSI certification.

Has it been a while since your last dive and you are looking to revive those underwater skills from your Open Water Diver course or a little nervous before heading into the water? Our refresher course is just what you need and is really great value at only $30

All divers who have not dived in over 2 years are required to complete this.

There is no prior learning and is easily completed on-board to bring you back up to speed and comfortable in the water.


Please go to our forms page and view the dive medical BEFORE booking any diving. If you answer yes to any of the questions, have a high BMI, over the age of 45 or have any other unmentioned medical conditions, you will be requried to obtain a Queensland dive medical from a certifiable doctor before you are able to partake in any diving whilst on tour.
