2-day PADI Open Water Referral Dive Course
Includes two 1-day Great Barrier Reef trips, Poseidon
Like all referral courses, you need to have already completed the pool and classroom portion of the PADI open water dive course before starting this course. You must also have completed the Australian dive medical, we can help you arrange that in Port Douglas or Cairns the day before your dive course.
Here in two days of ocean diving you will complete your PADI Open Water course wth 4 ocean dives, plus do an 5th ocean dive as a newly certified diver.
All diving is conducted on the Great Barrier Reef.
This course is conducted for small groups of four or less persons. We like the idea of taking a dive course in a small group sitiuation like this. While the costs are higher, you do benefit from the higher level of personal attention you will receive. In the Port Douglas area all dive courses are conducted in this manner, if you are on a budget you will want to look into taking your dive course in Cairns, where ther are larger schools and where competition for dive students keeps prices down.
Because Blue Dive is a small dive school you will want to plan ahead and book your dive course, especially if you are only going to be in the area for a week or less. We can organize a course for you with Blue dive starting any day of the week, but advance notice is needed as they rely on just one or two dive instructors. Contact us as soon as you can and let us get you sheduled to learn to dive!
This course includes dives aboard Poseidon, a Catamaran with a maximum of 4 student divers. The dive trip included in the course is for 2 days (note: return to town overnight), and allows 5 dives.
Blue Dive uses Poseidon Cruises as ahost for your ocean diving, done aboard their dive boat, Poseidon II. The Poseidon II, built in 1997, is a 86-foot power reef catamaran, a boat designed for swift, smooth travel. A custom-built dive vessel, there are both a large enclosed cabin and upper deck area, providing plenty of room for the 48 divers or snorkelers on each trip. A large water-level dive deck at the stern provides easy diver entrance and exits. Perfectly maintained, the Poseidon makes for very comfortable diving.
