The 20 millionth person to sign up for a PADI course will win a liveaboard trip to dive the Great Barrier Reef.

The lucky diver and a friend will experience Australia’s natural wonder of the world aboard the vessel Spirit of Freedom.

As the world’s largest diver training agency, millions of divers worldwide hold PADI certification cards.

To celebrate the 20 million mark, PADI Regional Headquarters around the world are giving a dive trip for two to Queensland, Australia.

The Great Barrier Reef spans more than 1,400 miles and consists of coral gardens, bommies, coral canyon walls and almost every type of dive site.

The pristine liveaboard dive vessel Spirit of Freedom will take the winning duo to dive sites along the reef, including the famous Cod Hole and Ribbon Reefs.

To enter, you’ll need to go to one of the more than 6,000 PADI Dive Centers or Resorts around the world and sign up for a course.
