RatPack Intro:

Magnetic Island is the ultimate island escape for backpackers, island lovers & explorers. Just a 25 minute ferry from Townsville you’ll find the paradise of Maggie, this island gives us serious island vibes and the perfect place to kick back and relax on a secluded beach with the perfect spots to snorkel and learn to dive in.

This unreal 3 day course will take you from newbie diver to underwater god/goddess! You’ll receive fantastic teaching and will get to experience the beauty that is the great barrier reef for yourself off of Magnetic Island! Under the surface in this incredible underwater world you’ll have the opportunity to see turtles, reef sharks (don’t worry – they won’t bite!), nemos and many tropical colourful fish, as well as the different species of coral!

The course is broken up into 2 parts, day 1 you’ll start in the classroom where you’ll learn about dive theory, your instructor will explain dive physics, physiology, and how you are affected underwater. Your Instructor will also take you through each section step-by-step, so that you have a complete understanding of dive theory meaning ULTIMATE dive knowledge >> yeewwwwwww!

Your next day starts in the pool, getting you totally familiar with all the scuba equipment and helping you understand the basics of diving with some dive skills and practice. Before long you will be swimming like a fish and SO ready for the ocean. After lunch your Instructor will take you to one of the unreal Island dive sites, for your first open-water dive. On this dive you will get a chance to get comfortable being in the ocean. You’ll head back into ocean, for your second training dive where you will repeat many of the skills that you mastered in the pool.On day 3 you are back into the ocean for your final 2 training dives. As you have already completed most of your skills on dive 2 you only have a few more skills on each dive. You will have plenty of time to relax and enjoy the sites. All that’s left to do is to complete the theory and you’re CERTIFIED and ready to dive!

We love this trip because you get to experience the ultimate Maggie island vibes and learn to dive on some seriously beaut dive spots!
