Port Douglas Beginner Diving Great Barrier Reef

Beginner diving is exactly what the name suggests. It is more commonly known as ‘Introductory Diving’. It is scuba diving for beginners; people without a dive certification who just ‘want to give it a go’.

“My first diving experience”

This was first ever dive and everything about it was positive thanks to ABC. The crew knows how to handle intro divers who are naturally nervous and excited about diving for the first time. The day consists of three dives, and each dive gets easier and more comfortable. The instructors first equip you with some information about the equipment and technique and then, once you get in the water, they spend some time getting you acclimated to using the gear and underwater breathing. Because the group is so small (there were 7 of us total, 3 intro divers + 4 snorkels), the instructors stay with you underwater and provide you with feedback after each dive so you know what to pay attention to the next time. This gives you an opportunity to improve your technique and overall diving experience. If you’re feeling nervous about diving, or just shopping around for a company, I highly recommend choosing ABC. You won’t regret it and you WILL overcome the nervousness (and feel really good about it, too!)

Port Douglas Beginner Diving – A Day To Be Spoiled

Our purpose fitted dive vessel can access unique diving areas, not visited by other people. These dive sites are carefully and specifically chosen to suit beginner divers, offering safe conditions and awe-inspiring coral and fish life to maximise your first dive experience.

Breathing underwater for the first time is exciting. The unique feeling of weightlessness can be exhilarating and ever so slightly addictive! This is your day to experience something new, something that may well change your life and it’s our job to make sure you enjoy the maximum.

We are passionate about teaching scuba diving and the Great Barrier Reef, which is a winning combination for everyone.

Personalised Teaching Methods – No need to be nervous!

We handle first time divers with utmost care and personal attention, providing a unique, safe, one-on-one instructional environment with flexible learning options.

If you are a little nervous about jumping in the ocean, how about taking those first breaths in the swimming pool with your feet firmly on the ground? First time dives in a pool are a great option to overcome initial nervousness and ensure you will wholeheartedly enjoy your first time reef experience.

“You Found it”

If you are searching for the best company to dive with in Port Douglas, you’ve found it! This is the dive company that provides fantastic dive masters and limits the number of divers on the boat. We had a wonderful experience with perhaps the best dive master I’ve ever had the chance to dive with, and learned so much as well as getting to experience the GBR. Other divers told us about dives they had been on with other companies in town…harrowing tales of crowded boats and unsafe conditions…ABC has your safety top of mind, provides amazing dives and protects what they love most-the GBR. Get ready to learn and have a fabulous dive. Oh, and the van driver is the best!!!

We start your journey by personally fitting your equipment prior to the trip. This will make you feel comfortable and give you a chance to familiarise yourself with the boat environment. On the way to the reef (or even the day before the trip if you prefer) our experienced dive instructor provides you with comprehensive information covering step by step everything you need to know about you first dive, from the equipment, to breathing underwater, communicating underwater, marine environment and more. And when you find yourself ready to take the plunge and immerse yourself in the Coral Sea, your personal instructor will be right there to hold your hand (literally sometimes).

We believe small is best when it comes to your first time dives. With us you enjoy individual tuition and learning is tailored to your pace. There is no fixed time slot for your dive, if you need longer for your dive preparation, you will not be hurried or rushed as there will be no busy boat schedule to follow. Your instructor will go through the dive process at your pace. If you want to leave and come back to it, then that’s fine too. This is all about you and you come first.

Promise to you: you come first, safety focused, one-on-one personal tuition; flexible learning options; safe and unspoilt reef locations away from other boats and tourists; fully qualified and experienced dive instructors.
