An amazing location – learning to dive on Bangka

Bangka is a fantastic place to learn how to scuba dive with calm waters and plenty of sandy bays which are perfect for training! There is also a huge variety of amazing marine life here, from tiny pygmy seahorses to the enormous dugongs! 

Professional tuition

We have dived and worked as PADI Instructors for several years and in different parts of the world before coming to Indonesia and have taught hundreds of people how to scuba dive. Patience, safety and fun are our 3 of our top priorities. 

We always take plenty of time with our students and never rush someone who needs a bit more time. Training groups are small and often one-to-one!
