Four-Day PADI Open Water Course

The Great Barrier Reef is a wonderful place to learn scuba diving. The safe, warm waters offer year-round access to some of the best scuba diving in the world. 

If you have evening plans and prefer not to stay overnight on a vessel, this four-day PADI Open Water Course with Divers Den is the perfect way to get the most out of your Open Water certification.

You’ll do your training over four days: The first two days, you will learn the theory and practice your skills in the classroom and pool at Divers Den five-star PADI career development and dive training centre. This will be followed by two day trips to the Great Barrier Reef onboard their day boat vessel, AquaQuest.

By the end of the course, you will become a certified PADI Open Water scuba diver, which allows you to scuba dive anywhere in the world.

If you’re short on time, become an Open Water scuba diver with this 3-day intensive course.

Or why not join a liveaboard and have additional time to practise your newly gained skills?
