Make your own way to the dive center, meet your instructors, do the paperwork, and get suited up. Learn the basic rules and techniques of scuba diving and then practice them in the safety of the training pool.

Once your instructor is happy you understand the basics, it’s off to the Indian Ocean waters around Padang Bai. Fin past schools of tropical fish and rainbow-hued corals, as you look for sea turtles, lobsters, moray eels, and more: Your instructor is close at hand at all times.

After one or two dives, shower, enjoy a delicious lunch, and make your own way back to base.

What a dive!

We never thought that we will be able to see mantas without scuba diving license. This was great above our expectations. The view when manta is over you is unforgettable! Their instructors are very skilled and patient and we had amazing day with 2 dives.
