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 on board one of our custom-built dive and snorkel catamarans, Poseidon or Silversonic, with access to some of the regions most pristine dive sites.
The same experienced dive instructor will be with you over the four days of your dive certification which, along with the smallest possible student to teacher ratios, ensures a personalised, comprehensive, safe, professional and most importantly fun, learning experience!
