Dive Airlie Beach - Scuba Whitsundays - Cruises and PADI Courses
Whitsunday Scuba Centre offers day cruises, liveaboard cruises and PADI training courses in the Whitsunday Islands and nearby Great Barrier Reef. We have been an established business in the Whitsundays since 1979 when we opened our first dive shop at Shute Harbour. The best diving options for Airlie Beach, Whitsunday Islands and the Great Barrier Reef are included in our website and you can book directly for PADI courses, liveaboards cruises or day cruises using our online enquiry or booking forms.
The dive site information in this website is our original information from our personal experience of operating cruise boats and scuba diving in the Whitsunday Islands and to the Great Barrier Reef. Most likely you will find it duplicated on other Whitsunday sites but we just want you to know that you are in good hands when you use this website.
Please use our forms when making your enquiry as they are designed to give us your information in a format that enbles us to answer you without delay.
We know you will love scuba diving the Whitsundays.

PADI Whitsunday - Airlie Beach
PADI courses from basic Open Water certification up to Rescue diver are available in Airlie Beach at the training centre. The centre is a professional training facility with classrooms and specially constructed deep training pools. All courses include day trips to the Whitsunday Islands.
Qualifying for the PADI Open Water Diver licence gives you the ability and confidence to dive with a dive buddy and without a diving instructor to guide you. The PADI Open Water Course is available any time for groups of two or more, however, if you are on your own you will have to fit in with courses that are scheduled so you will need to be flexible with your dates.
