Our PADI Advanced course is conducted in conjunction with our 3 day 2 night dive trip. You’ll have the opportunity to participate in up to 11 dives, 9 day and 2 night, over the duration of the trip. 5 of these dives will be training dives required to complete your PADI Advanced Certification and the remaining 6 will be recreational dives for you to enjoy the spectacular Great Barrier Reef.

There are no formal classroom sessions involved with this course, but you are required to read through the PADI “Adventures in Diving” manual and answer the relevant knowledge reviews prior to participating in the training dives. We recommend that you check-in at our retail shop on the corner of Grafton & Shields streets at your earliest convenience to pick up the course material and do some pre-reading prior to trip departure.

Your 5 Advanced course training dives are made up of 3 core dives being ‘Deep diving’, ‘Underwater Navigation’ and ‘Night diving’ and then 2 elective subject dives where you have a choice between Underwater Naturalist, Peak Performance Buoyancy, and the popular Underwater Photography module. Other elective dive options may be available.

Pre-requisite for this course is a PADI Open water certificate or the equivalent certification with another training agency.
