What can I expect if I book an Intro Dive Course?

You start off learning all the basics in a 30-minute introductory theory session. Following this is a pool session where you can comfortably get used to breathing under water and practice some basic skills under the guidance of a professional diving instructor. Then, after a short break, you will be taken on a dive at one of the dives sites around the Gili Islands accompanied by an instructor to a maximum depth of 12 meters.

This course will allow you to dive for a whole year to the max depth of 12 meters under the supervision of a Dive Master or Instructor. Alternatively, following this Introduction dive you also have the option to complete the Scuba Diver Course.  This involves one more day of theory, pool work and one more dive. Or you could just complete the full Open Water Diver certification course, but your instructor will give you all the options once you have completed your Introduction Dive.
