Cairns Dive Center's teaching facilities include a heated training pool, air-conditioned classrooms, changing rooms, gear lockers, showers and restrooms. Their campus is located on the edge of town, and a courtesy bus will transport you to and from your lodging.

Classes are taught in English, with texts and other course materials available in many other languages to assist students from these countries with their learning. The minimum age requirement for this course is 14 years of age. (Under 18 requires signed parental permission.)

Cairns Dive Centre is the only dive school offering an island option with their dive courses. This might be a great option if you are uncomfortable on boats, or would like a more relaxed small group experience. There are a range of lodging options out on the island, from budget camping to very nice, let us know if a night or two out on the island would be something of interest to you. © Cairns Dive Centre

This course includes dives aboard Reefkist, a 60 foot Catamaran with a maximum of 10 student divers. The dive trip included in the course is for 4 days (note: return to town overnight), and allows 4 dives.

The Boat

Cairns Dive Centre is proud of their new boat, Reefkist. This 18-metre (60-foot) power cat makes for a stable and quick trip out to the reef. There's plenty of space on board the boat, either in the shaded or sun deck areas, or inside in the air-conditioned cabin area. While licencesed to hold up to 80 persons, Cairns Dive Centre has limited their boat to just 40 to give more plenty of space. Exits and entrances from the water are easy from the water level dive deck at the stern.
