Learn to scuba dive in Bunaken is a great choice! The award winning reefs of Bunaken make ideal homes for hawksbill and green turtles, and we can just-about guarantee that you’ll see some while you learn to dive in Bunaken!
The most popular scuba diving course in the world is the PADI Open Water Course, and we can run this for you on Bunaken over 3 or 4 days.
Bunaken is an ideal location to begin your diving career! We have over 50 different dive sites around Bunaken and several of them are great for your open water dives with gentle sandy slopes to practice your skills, rarely any currents and plenty of fish, gorgeous corals as well as the turtles that Bunaken is so famous for.
Common dive sites to visit during your PADI Open Water course are Lekuan III, Alung Banua, Fukui, Tanjung Parigi, Towohi and Muka. We always aim to bring you to the best dive site for that day, depending on the conditions and the part of the course that you are doing.
We have an airy classroom in the main building where you will watch the course videos and go through the theory portion with your instructor. Our large swimming pool is purpose built for dive training with several steps a different depths with 3 m as maximum depth. This will give you the ideal conditions to take your first breaths under water in very shallow water and progress to deeper water where you will practice to get complete control over your buoyancy.
The schedule for your course is quite flexible but in general it starts with theory and pool sessions on the first day, two open water dives the second day, finish off the theory and pool on the third day and then two more open water dives on the last and fourth day.
With your theory already completed before you get here, the first day will be spent in the pool, two open water dives the second day, and then two more open water dives on the last/third day.
