Turtles, barracudas and reef sharks call the reefs their home as well, and you can also find wall-critters such as scorpion fish, nudibranch, lionfish, and seahorses hidden on the walls.

/// why bunaken for your open water course?

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, Tiwoho 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.

/// what will my experience be like on bunaken?

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.

/// What will the schedule be like?

The schedule will generally be:

  • Day 1 Theory session 1,2,3 in our classroom area by watching videos and learning with your instructor; Confined Sessions 1,2,3 in our huge 18m onsite swimming pool that gives you the chance to easily practice your skills and get comfortable in the water with different depth levels.
  • Day 2 Theory session 4&5, Confined Session 4&5
  • Day 3 Open Water Dives 1&2 on two of the dive sites around Bunaken – we join the main dive boat for the 10min trip to the dive sites, and soon you will be enjoying the underwater world with turtles, pufferfish, lionfish, butterflyfish and more.
  • Day 4 Open Water Dives 3&4 on two of the dive sites around Bunaken – we join the main dive boat for the 10min trip to two new dive sites

This schedule can be flexible depending on comfort level and progress, eg we can mix the open water dives with the theory and pool sessions so that you can get an early taste of the magical undersea world.

Normally you will have some free time in the afternoons on the 3rd and 4th day, this can be used to explore the area, relax or catch up on any theory, complete your exam or re-do some extra skills that are needed. Or add an extra dive to your course for even more fishy fun!

eLearning/Touch Schedule

With your theory already completed before you get here, the first two days will be spent in the pool and enjoying the first two open water dives, and then two more open water dives on the third and final day.
