Scuba diving is the best way to explore the Great Barrier Reef, and there is no better place in the world to learn to dive than in its warm waters! Quicksilver Dive's PADI Four Day Open Water Dive Certification course is ideal for adventure seekers looking to take that next step in their voyage of discovery. Two days of classroom/dive pool training is conducted at Port Douglas' only purpose-built PADI 5 Star IDC dive facility, centrally located with a heated dive pool and air-conditioned classrooms. The two days of practical training on the Great Barrier Reef are conducted onboard a modern dive and snorkel catamaran, with access to some of the regions most pristine dive sites. 


4 Day PADI Open Water Dive Course - Dayboats Ex Port Douglas

Your first two days of the course will be spent at our diver training centre where students learn dive theory in the classroom and the necessary skills of scuba diving in the pool. Days three & four are spent on the Great Barrier Reef aboard one of our custom-built dive and snorkel catamarans, Poseidon or Silversonic, during which students complete four training dives. At the end of Day 4, students will be PADI Open Water Divers!


2 Day PADI Advanced Dive Course - Dayboats Ex Port Douglas

Conducted over two days aboard the modern dive catamaran Poseidon, the PADI Advanced Open Water Course is the first step beyond basic certification and is designed to develop your confidence underwater by expanding your existing diving skills. The prerequisite for this course is a PADI Open Water certificate or equivalent from another training agency. There are no formal classroom sessions involved, but students will need to complete the PADI eLearning Advanced Open Water course online before arrival.  This knowledge will be reviewed on board prior to each training dive.
