Professional Dive Courses

PADI Scuba Instructors are the most sought-after dive professionals around the world. It’s hard work to earn your Open Water Scuba Instructor rating, but the reward is a job that helps you transform lives AND enjoy underwater adventures every day.

This is where it all starts – with safe, practical on-the-job training through our five-star Dive Centre, the only PADI Career Development Centre in Cairns, and time on board our vessels.

Starting with PADI Divemaster through to the Instructor Training program and the PADI Instructor Development Course, our expert instructors will work closely with you to refine your skills and turn you into a environmentally conscious, ready-to-work PADI professional.

We have a success rate of 100% and our instructor course graduates are highly sought after by employers (dive companies) in Australia and around the world. You can count on personal attention from our team, and a PADI instructor course that teaches far more than the minimum requirements.

These results are due to our amazing PADI Course Directors.

John Radmall: A PADI Pro Member for over 35 years, John is a huge part of the success rate of our PADI graduates. He is considered to be an Elite PADI Instructor.

Charlotte Faulkner: Originally from the UK, Charlotte learned to dive after completing her Masters in Animal Conservation, but fell in love with diving on a trip to Egypt. Since then she has worked in dive centres and managed dive shops across the Caribbean and has been teaching for over 12 years.
