Nitrox course & Liveaboard combo

Combine Nitrox certification with a 3 day Great Barrier Reef liveaboard trip

Nitrox is an air mix, also known as Enriched Air, that has a higher percentage of oxygen and a lower percentage of nitrogen than standard air. This reduced percentage leads to a slower rate of nitrogen gas absorption, extending your allowable bottom time. Nitrox is ideal for divers wanting to dive multiple times over multiple days, making it perfect for liveaboard dive trips. However, special certification is required for its use. Pro Dive Cairns offers the Nitrox Certification for certified divers, in conjunction with the three-day, two-night Great Barrier Reef liveaboard dive trip.

The theory component of the certification begins pre-trip.  Within 24hrs of your booking, you will be provided with details on how to log into the online PADI eLearning portal and begin your course. Here you will read and watch the prerequisite content,  along with a final knowledge review. Completing the theory component prior to the trip allows for the maximum number of nitrox dives possible. 

An offline alternative is provided on board the vessels for those without access to the internet. 

Pro Dive Cairns' liveaboard dive trip allows for three-days and two-nights of exploring a variety of outer Great Barrier Reef locations, all selected for their extravagance of marine life and excellent visibility.    

This personalised adventure offers an opportunity to participate in up to 11 dives, including two night dives, as well as some great snorkelling on a variety of our 19 exceptional Outer Reef dive sites over four magnificent reefs: Flynn, Thetford, Milln and Pellowe Reefs. Diving at different times throughout the day, you will be able to encounter an amazing diversity of marine life including giant clams, majestic sea turtles, graceful stingrays, reef sharks, an incredible variety of tropical fish, spectacular coral formations and consistent underwater visibility. Night diving will introduce a whole new dimension of nocturnal life. 

Between dives, relax in comfort on board one of our three premium  Scubapro dive boats; these purpose-built liveaboard dive vessels; these feature air-conditioned twin or double cabins, spacious decks, WiFi * (Due to our remote location and ongoing network provider changes, WiFi access may be limited and not guaranteed), catered meals, and the comforts of home.
