This course takes you to 9 of the Great Barrier Reef’s best dive sites & features two days of classroom & in-pool training, then it’s onto the live aboard boat for the actual reef diving. There’s also plenty of time to snorkel, relax & just enjoy the reef experience.

On our trips we don't just take you to the destinations, we make sure you get under the skin of every place you visit. From amazing food & accommodation, to exclusive access to incredible experiences, with Contiki you'll get unbeatable value & a completely unique travel experience.
