Learn To Dive - 4 Day Learn to Dive with Quicksilver Dive, Port Douglas

Port Douglas’ brand new, and only, purpose built dive training facility. Scuba diving is the best way to explore the Great Barrier Reef, and there is no better place in the world to learn to dive than in its warm waters! Quicksilver Dive's PADI Four Day Open Water Dive Certification course is ideal for adventure seekers looking to take that next step in their voyage of discovery. Two days of classroom/dive pool training is conducted at Port Douglas' only purpose-built PADI 5 Star IDC dive facility, centrally located with a heated dive pool and air-conditioned classrooms. The two days of practical training on the Great Barrier Reef are conducted on board a modern dive and snorkel catamaran, with access to some of the region’s most pristine dive sites.
