6-day PADI Open Water dive course
Includes 2-day Island Camp/Dive Safari, Coral Gypsy
This dive course stands out as a completely unique experience. There is no other dive course where the ocean diving portion of the trip is a 2-day diving and camping safari on a remote reef island. Takng this course would be a memorable experience by any measure!
The course starts on Monday eveing with an evening classroom and pool session.
There are three more sissions evening session on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thrusday.
After these are completed successfully you are all set for the remainder of the course; an amazing one-night diving and camping safari to the picturesque Pelorus and Orpheus Island. This trip deparrts early Satruday morning.
During the weekend you complete 5 dives, 4 of these are training dives and the last dive, as a fully qualified open water diver and able to dive up to 18m world wide!
We like the fact that this course is kept small, and is usually a mix of locals and visitors, and the unique and uniquely Australian island camping/dive trip that make this course so memorable.

This course includes dives aboard Coral Gypsy, a 38 foot Mono Hull with a maximum of 10 student divers. The dive trip included in the course is for 3 days, 2 nights, and allows 5 dives.
The RadDive II is a boat that's perfectly suited to it's purpose. This 13 Metre (40-foot) boat is outfitted for the diving and camping safaris and dive courses that Remote Area Dive leads in the Pam Island group.
She's nothing fancy, just a fast boat that rides cleanly in the water and makes for easy diving. We like the full-length shade, the ladder that let's sun-seekers bask on the top to catch the rays. The low sides and stern of the boat makes entrances and exits from the water.
This boat also carries a zodiac, which is also used to get to the less easily accessed dive sites.

About Remote Area Dive
Remote Area Diving was founded by two longtime friends and PADI dive instructors back in 2000. Much like DiveTheReef.com, the initial plan was to enjoy life, and maybe get to go diving for free, but after a couple of years, a formula of combining great diving, qualified instruction, small group sizes, and camping on remote tropical islands proved to be a great product, and the company has been busy ever since.
Amongst the friendly experienced dive professionals at RAD there are two registered nurses and a qualified chef; you can be sure that you are in expert hands in all aspects of their service!
