Breathing underwater for the first time is one of the most amazing sensations that can be experienced. However many visitors to our incredible part of the world, amongst all of the activities available in the region; often have only one day to make it to the Outer Great Barrier Reef to see it for themselves.

PADI 'Discover Scuba Diving' is an introductory dive program designed with those in mind who want to see the reef in 3-D, without going through a full 3 day certification course.

Under instruction and supervision of an experienced dive instructor, you'll learn about basic principles and techniques for safe scuba diving, before completing a few in-water exercises. Once the training session is completed, we are then free to explore the reef for the rest of the day, enjoying the freedom of zero-gravity, and observing the day-to-day life of the wildlife

Supervision from experienced local Instructor

Small, private groups for added safety & enjoyment

High quality, rental equipment

Travel onboard comfortable, spacious dive vessel

3 dives at the Outer Great Barrier Reef

Full briefing/ Instruction

Fresh buffet lunch; Morning & afternoon tea

No previous experience is necessary, though it is recommended that you have either  snorkeled before, or are comfortable swimming in the ocean. If that's not the case, then please get in touch about arranging a pool session before travelling to the reef. This would be at added cost but is a great option for anyone who's not sure whether scuba diving is for them.



Minimum age for Introductory Diving is 12

Certain medical conditions and/or medications may pose a health risk and preclude you from diving.  Please contact us for details

No previous experience necessary, though being comfortable in deep water and moderate swimming ability are an advantage
