SSI Scuba Diver

Learn Scuba Diving in Bali

The SSI Scuba Diver course is a two-day introductory scuba diving certification course that enables you to dive to a maximum depth of 12 meters while accompanied by an SSI Professional. It is a great way to make some progress toward your full Open Water Diver certification if you only have two days available for dive training in Bali. You can upgrade your certification in the future by completing the balance of the Open Water Diver course.

Safety is our top priority while we strive to provide an inclusive and supportive scuba dive training environment for all our students. Our class sizes are kept small, with a maximum of four (4) students per Instructor.

What to Expect During The Scuba Diver Course?

Your SSI Scuba Diver course begins when you enroll and gain access to the digital learning materials, which you are required to complete prior to arriving at our Bali diving school. When you arrive at our dive centre on day one of your Bali Scuba Diver course, we will finalize any administrative details and then the excitement of your in-water training begins! You will join your instructor and fellow students in a nearby swimming pool to practice using the scuba equipment and performing various skills. There will be a break to enjoy lunch onsite and when the day is done, make sure to stay hydrated and get plenty of rest ahead of day two!

On day two of your SSI Scuba Diver course in Bali you will get to apply the skills you learned during the pool session in the open water at some of the best dive sites in Bali! The day will begin with comfortable, air-conditioned transportation to the dive sites, where you will prepare your equipment and listen to a dive briefing. Once everyone is ready, you will enter the water to truly try scuba diving in Bali for the first time! After the second dive, you will have lunch with your Instructor and fellow students, during which you can fill out your digital logbook and discuss the exciting things you saw underwater!
