2 Day POOL & Theory Referral Program

The PADI referral system gives you a variety of options to commence and complete your diving education. It is possible to start your PADI Open Water (Learn to Dive) certification with the two-day Pool and Theory Referral Program at the Pro Dive Cairns training centre or finish your Open Water certification with our PADI Three Day Ocean Referral Course.

You will spend two-days at our modern, purpose-built diver training centre learning the theory and underwater skills of diving. PADI referral paperwork will be issued at the end of day two, confirming the completion of your pool and theory training. The instructor who completes the remainder of the PADI Open Water training will require this referral paperwork.

You are strongly advised to pre-book your course as availability may be limited. You can pre-book and confirm your place on a course by booking online, emailing or calling us.

Daily accommodation transfers are included and can be booked in advance. However, if you are unsure of your accommodation details, you can contact us on arrival in Cairns.

Once of a lifetime experience

Once of a lifetime experience scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef! Seamless booking experience and pre trip planning and communication were great. We booked a 3 day/2night liveaboard and did our open water certification on the trip (we did the pool/classroom portion previously in the US). The boat was spacious and we were very well fed (thanks to Sam for providing great meals throughout the entire journey!). Got our open water certification with our instructor Lisa who was patient with us and provided great feedback throughout the trip. We felt safe on all the dives (we did 8 in total) and got informative pre dive briefings from our dive master Kevin who was personable and friendly and did a great job keeping us on schedule to see the most amount of areas and diving spots but also safe. Saw beautiful reefs and landscapes! Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to visit Cairns/Great Barrier Reef!

Great way to do a dive course

I loved this trip. I did an Advanced Diver Course with Pro Dive Cairns, 3 days on a well equipped boat with an excellent crew, great dives sites and a good bunch of people to hang out with. Loads of fun and I hope I can get back for more soon!
