What better way to learn to dive than in the clear, warm waters of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef! This 4 Day PADI Open Water course is comprised of two days pool & theory training at a ProDive's modern training facility, followed by 2 x one day trips onboard Tusa 6 to the Great Barrier Reef.

Tusa - T6 is considered a premium motoring vessel that can carry 120 passengers, yet this company caps the number of passengers at 60 per day, therefore it only ever goes 50% full. This ensures ample seats for everyone and personalised service from the crew. They are also the only Cairns day boat that is licensed for 16 sites giving the skipper the ability to selectively choose the best 2 sites for you on the day. This equates to visiting higher quality reef sites as the company is dispersing less people over more reef sites every day, which slows the human impact on the sites.

Locally owned TUSA Dive are specialists in day tours to the reef with more than 20 years experience. TUSA Dive is an Advanced Ecotourism Operator, committed to providing a service that reflects our responsibility to contribute to the protection of our environment.  Come and learn to dive on a premium boat that has access to some amazing dive sites on the Outer Barrier Reef.
