Pro Dive Cairns Expands Learn To Dive Facilities

Pro Dive Cairns is spending $2 million to upgrade its learn to dive facilities and capabilities. With an international reputation for quality and professionalism, Pro Dive Cairns are a PADI 5 Star Dive Centre that has taught over 100,000 people to scuba dive, since opening 1983.

This recent investment focuses on expanding capacity at its Spence Street Training Centre, including adding another 4.5m deep heated training pool and three more classrooms.

Pro Dive Cairns Sales and Marketing Manager Steve Brady said the training centre was an integral part of teaching people how to learn to dive in comfort and safety, before they went on to complete their certification on Cairns’ Great Barrier Reef.

“Pro Dive Cairns is committed to providing its students with the very best facilities, in which to learn to scuba dive in Cairns in comfort and safety,” Mr Brady said.

“The works currently being completed at our Spence Street centre, effectively allows us to double the amount of students we have in-water at any one time,” he said.

All Pro Dive Cairns Learn to Dive students completing a 5 day PADI Open Water Course, spend two days learning and practising dive theory and skills at the Spence Street centre, before heading out to complete their certification on a three day liveaboard trip to the Great Barrier Reef.

“Currently we can only have 20 students at any one time in the pool practising their underwater breathing and diving skills, such as mask clearance and regulator retrieval, while our liveaboard boats can take 32 passengers.”

“These extra facilities will make a big difference to our operations and we can’t wait to officially open them in the next few weeks,” he said.
