Schools Groups

The team at Great Keppel Island Watersports & Activities and Keppel Dive, are excited to offer a range of options for any school or leadership group. We have experience catering for small groups to large groups (greater than 100 students). We also pride ourselves on our safety conscious attitudes, with all staff having a minimum level of first aid experience and a current blue card.

Packages range from single day trips to multi day camps, and can be tailored to suit, either guide by your teachers/leaders or our experienced and certified staff.

Activities & equipment offered include:

  • Snorkel Gear (mask/fins/snorkel)
  • Kayaks (single and doubles)
  • Stand-Up Paddle Boards
  • Guided Snorkel Tours
  • Guided Kayak & SUP activities
  • Bushwalking (with both Indigenous and European settlement interpretations)
  • Mangrove Tours
  • Reef Interpretation talk
  • Beach/team building exercises

We are also excited to offer:

  • Educational packages in conjunction with Eye On The Reef (a Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority initiative) that includes reef health surveys. This is great for high school or marine specific groups.

PADI Open Water Dive Course

These a great for a longer camp, or a to be an addition to an entire term subject. This requires a minimum age of 12 years, and includes dive theory, confined water dives (either at the local pool or in the calm waters of GKI) and 4 open water dives. This generally takes 4 days total if done over consecutive days, or can be spread across several weeks.
-There are medical conditions and prescribed medications that can exclude participants, or require a signed dive medical by a certified Doctor.

PADI Discover Scuba Diving

A shorter, but just as exciting, course is PADI Discover Scuba Diving. This introductory dive involves a short theory component, in water skills and a supervised dive. This can be completed in one day, and has a student/instructor ratio of 4:1. This dive can be used as RPL for a full Open Water Dive Course.

Due to the variance in group size and requirements, all packages are tailored on enquiry. All of our experiences can be tailored to age, subject and curriculum requirements to ensure your students get the most out of their stay at GKI.

We have an unrivalled passion for the reef and the Keppel Group and would love to share that with all age groups. Not only does this help build awareness of the reef, its beauty and current environmental pressures, but it may also result in the next generation entering the tourism industry.

We look forward to hearing from you!
