Diving Courses

What we offer

We have a wide variety of dive courses to choose from whether your only just starting out, you just want to top up your skills or you want to become a dive professional. Please look at our options below.

Discover Scuba Diving

PADI Discover Scuba Diver

A Discover Scuba Diving or DSD is an introduction to diving. You can dive to a depth of 12 metres and
will always be under direct supervision of an instructor. We offer DSDs every afternoon.

You will spend some time on the boat discussing the details of the dive with your instructor
and then you will begin the dive in very shallow water, slowly moving to a depth that you are
comfortable with.

A few reasons to choose to participate in a DSD :

Not enough time to complete a 2 and a half day Open Water Course

  • Not sure if you like diving
  • Not interested in theory
  • Cannot swim

 

Please note that this is not a certification. If you decide you would like to be certified after
experiencing a DSD you can gain the Open Water Diver in another 2 and a half days
(Must be at least 10 years old)

PADI Open Water Diver Certification

The PADI Open Water Course is a three to four day program earning the diver an internationally recognized license. After completing this course you will be certified to dive to 18m, and qualified to join dive trips, and rent scuba equipment, all over the world. The course can be done on four consecutive days, any two weekends, or scheduled to your convenience.

During the PADI Open Water dive course you and your PADI diving Instructor work through five pool dives, five knowledge development sessions, and then get four ocean dives to earn your PADI certification.

If you already tried a PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience or are PADI Scuba Diver certified you can quickly and easily upgrade to PADI Open Water Diver C contact us for details.

Virtually anyone who is in good health, reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water can earn a PADI Open Water Diver certification.

Advanced Open Water Diver

PADI Advanced Open Water Diver

During the PADI Advanced Open Water course you will complete 2 core dives: deep and navigation, plus an additional 3 Adventure dives C such as night diving, drift diving,underwater photography, multi-level computer diving, sidemount, peak performance buoyancy, search & recovery, naturalist and fish identification

(Must be at least 10 years old and be a PADI Open Water Diver or equivalent)

Fun Dives

Lunch is provided on the boat during the surface interval, along with mineral water & hot drinks. We continue to explore the three islands of Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Ceningan and Nusa Penida, looking for some of the very best dive sites around Bali. Having discovered a new Manta feeding area, we now have 18 different dive sites to which we take guests, and are still finding new spots where we see some incredible creatures. With our professional and highly valued local staff, we offer first class diving in spectacular and exciting environments.
For the more experienced

Diving around the three islands has a reputation from guidebooks as being difficult because of the currents. Most of the dives are drift dives, but the advantage that we have being based on Lembongan, is that we can dive around high tides which minimizes the current. This means we often have calm waters in which to enjoy the spectacular coral and marine life. Our daily trips usually include two dives, along the coasts of either Nusa Lembongan or Nusa Penida. When conditions are favourable, adventures down to Manta Point or Secret Manta and also to the east coast of Nusa Penida are possible. All dives are guided dives with a maximum ratio of four guests to one Instructor / Divemaster.
