The only dedicated 5 Star PADI Training and Instructor Development Centre in Port Douglas, Quicksilver Dive offers a range of PADI accredited courses for beginners to advanced divers looking to further their skills in a professional, safe and fun learning environment.

Commenting on the Dive Centre, Quicksilver Group Managing Director Tony Baker said, “We are thrilled with our new $3.85 million Dive Centre which has been delivered on budget. We were pleased to employ local contractors and suppliers who have been involved from design, construction and fit-out and they have shown the quality of the build which is evident in every aspect.

With the Dive Centre and our awesome selection of over 35 World Heritage Agincourt ribbon reef sites, there really is no better place in the world to learn to dive than the Great Barrier Reef off Port Douglas! 

The facility complements the services Quicksilver currently provides with our Port Douglas based dive vessels Silversonic and Poseidon utilised for open water training and certification dives. We know we will attract  a new market to Port Douglas who will be spending up to a week in local accommodations and participate in other evening activities.”

The Quicksilver Dive Centre features a four metre deep training pool, classrooms, offices and a specialty dive retail shop. The training pool features a unique above ground design with innovative viewing wall. 

Quicksilver Dive Courses include:

  • 4 Day Open Water Course
  • 3 Day Open Water Dive Course with eLearning
  • Open Water Dive Refresher Course
  • Advanced Open Water
  • Rescue Diver
  • Dive Master Course  
  • Instructor Development Course.

The Port Douglas based Quicksilver Dive is also a perfect complement to the Group’s Cairns based dive training facility, Pro Dive Cairns, with learn to dive courses and liveaboard trips.
