This course provides you with the theoretical skill and the practical skill that you require to dive anywhere in the world.

2 Days Pool and Theory
1 Day trip on Fitzroy Island
1 Day trip on the Outer Reef

Your professional instructor will help you through the learning process. Your open water dive course is split up into three sections.

Theory gives you the knowledge required to dive in open water conditions. This takes the form of classroom presentations and lectures by the instructor in the comfort of our new air-conditioned classrooms.

Confined water training takes place in our gas-heated pool at our training centre, during which time you will master the skills of diving.

Open water dives will be conducted in the calm waters off of Fitzroy Island on Day 1 and on the Great Barrier Reef Day 2.
