What to Expect
On the door step of the Great Barrier Reef, and centrally located in the idyllic Port Douglas, Quicksilver Dive provides the perfect base and holiday destination to take the plunge and learn to dive in this living natural wonder.

This exciting 4 Day Learn to Dive Course combines two days theory and pool practice at the 5 Star PADI Training Centre with the adventure of two Great Barrier Reef day trips to complete your training dives (4 mandatory) and the option of two guided fun dives as a certified diver!

The modern training centre features a uniquely designed four metre deep heated pool with a glass viewing area, air conditioned classrooms and personalised small class sizes. The most up to date dive equipment is provided and you will have the same instructor throughout your course, from the classroom to the Great Barrier Reef! Your dive certification will be safe, professional and most importantly fun!

Combined with exclusive permits to a spectacular array of over 35 World Heritage Great Barrier Reef dive sites at the renowned Agincourt ribbon reefs, the open water training and certification dives are conducted from the region’s premier dive vessels, Poseidon or Silversonic.
