Dive Dive Dive Hammock time! Combine chilled Malaysian Island life with the daily life of a dynamic, professional and really lovely dive center. You will be treated like family here and by the end of it, you will not want to leave. Dive centers vary as much as the diving does. But sometimes you hit a strike, and this is one of those cases. Wake up in your divers-dorm, shuffle through the door to the dive center, grab a cup of coffee and experience the vibe of divers at work. As a PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Center, you will be in the hands of talented people with a great passion for diving to expand your experience.
Explore the reefs with the dive center, trek through the jungle that covers the island, or snorkel from beach to beach. It is a green island, full of life, but no roads, no cars, and absolutely NO stress! As the sun sets, grab a seafood bbq dinner on the beach. And if you are not diving the next day, take a 10-minute walk over to Long Beach and dance barefooted in the sand till the morning arrives together with backpackers and locals alike.
You can always grab a boat taxi to a secluded beach, or do the short walk through the jungle to the famous long beach for a party, but the serenity and the all time presence of nature in Coral Bay will always drag you back in the morning! And if you are a little fresh, then jump in the ocean for an early morning snorkel on the corner reef to maximize your luck of seeing little black reef sharks buzzing around beneath you.
On the day of arrival you will be greeted at the dive center by the dive
staff, shown your room and given an orientation of the area, the dive
center and the diving or courses you will be doing. You’ll typically do
two dives a day, but this can easily be extended to three if you so
choose. Between dives you’ll go back to the dive center for coffee, tea
or lunch. Extra dives or a night dive can be organized on location for
an extra fee. There will be no refund on dives not used. Checkout time
is at noon. It is highly recommended that you book extra nights prior to
and after your package as both the dorm beds and bungalows has limited
space, and in high season it can be quite impossible to extend your stay
once you are there.
