This personalised adventure offers an opportunity to participate in up to 11 dives, including two-night dives, as well as some great snorkelling on a variety of our 19 exceptional Outer Reef dive sites over four magnificent reefs: Flynn, Thetford, Milln and Pellowe Reefs. Diving at different times throughout the day, you will be able to encounter an amazing diversity of marine life including giant clams, majestic sea turtles, graceful stingrays, reef sharks, an incredible variety of tropical fish, spectacular coral formations and consistent underwater visibility. Night diving will introduce a whole new dimension of nocturnal life. 

Between dives, relax in comfort on board one of our three premium  Scubapro dive boats; these purpose-built liveaboard dive vessels; these feature air-conditioned twin or double cabins, spacious decks, catered meals, and the comforts of home. With small passenger numbers and close crew-to-guest ratios, a high-quality, personalised experience from our dedicated staff is ensured at all times.

Perfect start to diving!

Fantastic time spent doing my open water cert! Thanks to Captain Leighton and the dive crew, Robbie, Lucy, Kevin, and Mike, who were supportive, knowledgeable and made every dive exciting and memorable. Thanks to Davina and Will who made sure we never went hungry with delicious meals and post dive snacks. After getting certified, they gave us the chance to do an extra certification to dive at night and to 30m depths! Safe to say I've caught the bug for diving! If you've ever wanted to dive but felt a little nervous then go with ProDive. The instructors make you feel safe and help quickly get you used to being under water! Cheers LEGENDS!

One of the most beautilful and exciting courses we’ve ever undergone.

Just got back from the Pro Dive Open Water Scuba Dive liveaboard trip with my girlfriend at Great Barrier Reef, and it was no less than one of the best experiences we’ve ever had. Thanks to Floriane Guyot, our dive instructor, we can now call ourself Certified Open Water Scuba Divers. Flo managed to keep us safe and informed troughout the whole course - she is both very professionel, very kind and does a very good job as a teacher.

You are never to old to experience diving with Pro Dive Cairns

I want to thank Pro Dive for an amazing experience, for the value of such an experience both personally and within the economic valueI would also like to express as a 56 year old how amazing my instructor and dive master, Satoshi was, he took his time in a space that had to fit a lot of knowledge and training within a short amount of time.What Satoshi gifts is a formal knowledge and an ability to share this knowledge calmly and without frustration, a sometimes rare trait in today's fast paced environment... he would often take that breath to explain, show and listen to each of us and our individual needs. He also gifts a beautiful sense of play, his play is sensitive, and is in no way showing off; he offers an experience of flow within his play, encouraging us students to breathe and find our own sense of curiosity. Lastly Satoshi encouraged us, he gave us permission to learn through a somatic expression—by both talking and showing us the things we needed to learn, he then took the time to allow each of us to find our own unique sense of learning, he listened and watched us, encouraging even within our mistakes.I appreciate that he took me as an elder diver under his wing, Satoshi never stopped encouraging me, giving me confidence to keep experiencing.I also want to say everyone at Pro Dive were amazing... the boat was great, the food fantastic, beds comfortable, knowledge of the reef and inclusion of everyone into a team is very special.And everyone at the store, booking in and helping me was greatThank you again for a very special 56 birthday Kindness Gav
