Scuba Diving Trips

by travelnewb

Hi everyone,

I'm going to be in Cairns the first two weeks of October and I'd like to take a learning to dive course. I've found two that seem worthwhile. Just wondering if anyone has taken either of these and can recommend one over the other or a different one entirely?

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Anything that is PADI certified should be fine

The dive courses aren't actually run by Contiki or the YHA, so they could in fact even be the same course.

It looks like the Contiki one is run by ProDive which is a reputable company.

These dive courses just take care of where you stay and stuff...you can compare prices and see if you would rather just book your accomodation on your own and directly with the dive shops there.

A View For the Locals

by wise23girl

Dorrise took us for an outing on our last day in Cairns. One place we went was up a steep road to view Cairns as only the locals see it.
Now I suggest you view her pages ...V T Member tropicrd and see if she has divulged the secret...otherwise email her and ask for directions.

While we were there we 'jumped for Norman'

Backpackers place to be in Cairns

by helsbels about The Woolshed

Bar/Club, always packed with backpackers out for a laugh. Great atmosphere as always in these places, good music, offers on drinks and cheap food served earlier in the evening.The usual fun, silliness and dancing on tables. Definately worth a visit.

Giant Kauri Pines

by Bwana_Brown

With the three children along (including our 5-month old latest addition) we did not do much in the way of restauranting! However, I do not recall having any problems finding lots to eat! Photo of some giant Kauri pine trees at a tourist site near Lake Barrine.

Port Douglas

by pugwashman

Lovely town on the sea from where you can take trips to the Barrier Reef. Some of the biggest Tour Operators are here, ie:Quicksilver, but don't rush through the town because it is well worth a visit in it's own right. The drive from Cairns itself is worth making the visit for as the road skims along the shore affording spectacular views of the coastline. There is also a 4 mile beach.

Go sailing

by bluesmama

What a wonderful way to spend a day or even a couple of days.
We went for a day trip on an old wooden sail ship called the Falla. We dived and snorkled and on the way back I steered the ship.
Even if you don't go to see a reef and just sail around back home in Denmark - nothing beats sailing!
