Scuba diving komodo

Our instructors are an experienced, multilingual team with a passion for diving and a great eagerness to introduce people to the world of SCUBA. We have a range of courses for people who would just like to try diving for the first time or want to continue their education and take the first professional steps of their diving career. All of our PADI Instructors speak fluent English and can also teach in Bahasa Indonesia, French and Dutch.

 Komodo has a wide range of dive sites for the courses we conduct. From aquarium calm bays for beginner students to fast drift dives for advanced students, Komodo has the full package. All of our students receive the PADI e-Manual upon booking. The e-Manual gives you the benefit of preparing for the course beforehand while helping to reduce paper! 

what is best? Discover Scuba Dive or Open Water Course?

Believe it or not but a lot of people that travel to Komodo island have no idea that, besides the famous Komodo dragons, this is one of the best dive destinations in the world. So what are the options for people who have never dived before?

In our blog, we lay out in detail the 2 best options you can choose from if you want to dive in Komodo but have never tried diving. There is the Discover Scuba Dive for people who just want to have a tester how it feels diving underwater for the first time or the Open Water Course to immediately go for your first-level certification in diving. The best part is you can do both! Not sure which one is best for you? Read our blog!
