Would you like to be a SCUBA diver that wants to go pro-level while also gaining a further appreciation and knowledge of your future work environment as value-added to your Divemaster rating?

Are you looking forward to starting a degree in Marine Science and would like to get a head start by combining your Divemaster Training with an introduction to marine biology and hands-on fieldwork?

If you’ve answered yes to either of these, congratulations and we hope you will join us!

Our program aims to combine creating confident, safe, dive professionals whilst providing a solid introduction to marine biology concepts and projects.

Our candidates, once certified, can go on to proudly work as SCUBA professionals with an understanding of the marine environment or go on to pursue degrees and careers in Marine Science, feeling capable in contributing to marine conservation efforts world wide.

Our location on Nusa Lembongan, Bali,  is only a short, beautiful, boat ride away from the successful Nusa Penida Marine Protected area of Bali.

Throughout the program our candidates learn from a series of eleven lectures and discussions on varied marine science topics, including an introduction to basic marine ecology, climate change, and scientific diving standards. Accompanying fieldwork in world class dive sites enhances the knowledge acquired in the classroom.

Think of it this way: in order to successfully and safely carry out a transect study, for instance, one must first be a solid SCUBA diver, in absolute control of their buoyancy, breathing, spacial and team awareness while also having developed an eye and knowledge of the existing species of the area of study.
