2 review for Prodive Great Barrier Reef 3D2N Liveaboard Trip / 4-5 days PADI Open Water Course

  1. Recommend Prodive’s Padi Open Water course!

    I signed up for 5 days 4 nights Padi Open Water course (3 days on the boat), at the end we could select to level up to Adventure certificate to dive down 30 m.

    Highly recommend to get the scuba dive licence with Prodive as they’re really professional. The boat was clean and the staff took good care of us. It’s better to bring seasick pills on the boat.
