Whether you are wanting to learn to dive, enhance your existing certification, or train to become an elite PADI Open Water Instructor, Deep Sea Divers Den can make it happen. The best news? This is all happens in Cairns, on the Great Barrier Reef, an icon for dive tourism worldwide. Their scuba training school and dive shop are located at 319 Draper Street, in Cairns city. It’s been purpose built to meet the needs of scuba divers of all experience levels. It features four classrooms and a training pool.
