Day 1: Diving the outer Great Barrier Reef
Dive 1 and 2 are two pleasure dives to give you an introduction to diving on the Great Barrier Reef. This is also a great opportunity for you to acclimatize to the diving conditions, fine tune your skills or even to refresh your skills if it has been some time since your last dive.
Following is dive 3, a navigation dive. After revising your knowledge review, your instructor will brief you on your navigation dive where you will complete some exercises using both a compass and natural references to help improve your underwater navigation skills.
The dive 4 will be a night dive. You will be introduced to night diving on the Great Barrier Reef. You will complete a simple navigation exercise before being given a guided tour with your instructor. During your night dive, you can expect to find sleeping turtles, parrot fish and a variety of other marine life only encountered at night.
Days 2 and 3:
Dive 1 is a deep dive during which we will give you the experience to safely conduct dives beyond your 18-metre depth limit as an open water diver. Under the close supervision of your dive instructor, you will be taken down to 30 metres, where you will be tested for signs of nitrogen narcosis, shown the effects of increased pressure and colour absorption at depth.
With your three core dives now completed, you have 5-day dives remaining to complete the last 2 dives of your advanced training dives, all designed to introduce you to other interesting areas of diving which you may wish to learn more about.
Choose from the following elective dives to complete your course: Peak Performance Buoyancy (PPB), Underwater Naturalist, Underwater Photography, Search and Recovery Boat Diving.
