Learn To Dive - Divers Den 4 Day

Scuba diver training with Divers DenDivers Den has operated from Cairns for over 25 years, making them one of the longest established diving & snorkelling companies in the area. Their training facilities are under one roof, which is one of the many reasons they have also earned their PADI 5 star Instructor Development Centre status.

Divers Den's friendly and personalized service make it one of the best learn to dive courses available in Cairns. They employ many bilingual PADI diving instructors with English, German and Japanese courses available.

The first 2 days of your course are spent learning the theory behind diving and learning new skills in the confined waters of their diver training pool. This is followed by a 2 day 1 night liveaboard trip to the outer reef where you will do your 4 training dives and 1 pleasure dive.

The live aboard vessel takes up to 48 passengers onboard and is permanently moored on the Outer Reef with a transfer vessel transferring passengers back and forth each day. There are 2 types of accommodation onboard: Double with ensuite (1 x double bed) and twin with ensuite (2 x single beds).
