If you think the ocean is mesmerising on the surface, wait till you get inside. It’s a different world beneath the waves. The shimmering surroundings, the waving flora, miles of colourful coral ranges or the abundant fauna gliding and darting through the currents in an almost hypnotic fashion. Each time you descend into the water, you are going to experience something mesmerising.
We are not telling you how amazing the world underwater is to entice you to get certified. We are telling you all this because we have been there and we know it’s worth it! As avid divers ourselves, we understand that the most important reason to get certified is safety. Every PADI-certified dive lesson will teach you the right techniques and safety measures to ensure that you enjoy every dive you’ll ever make.
To be eligible for this course, you have to be able to swim 200m unaided.
If you have a fear of water or any other phobia, our in-house therapists will be on hand at all times to walk you through them. So don’t worry!
WEH ISLAND - A TRIP TO THE NORTHERN TIP.
Weh or locally known as Sabang Island is located at the northernmost tip of Indonesia, off Sumatra Island. Stretching into the sea, this sanctuary is where the Indian Ocean, the Andaman Sea and the Straits of Malacca converge, leading to abundant and diverse marine life.
The island is surrounded by colourful coral reefs and beneath its sparkling depths, you can witness natural phenomenons like underwater volcanic bubbles caused by the geothermal activity of hot sulphur rising from the ocean bed. Essentially, you are in the crater of an ancient dormant volcano.
This idyllic destination is surrounded by shimmering turquoise water, home to a wide variety of aquatic life that include a high population of eels, turtles, devil rays and even reef sharks.
The only problem with this pristine and naturally beautiful island paradise is that you may never, ever want to leave since it's so affordable to stay longer and appreciate nature at her purest.
