Questions About Your Dive?
The following are a selection of the most commonly asked questions we receive. If you would like any further information before you dive with us, please contact us using the “Contact Us” form or on [email protected]
Do I need to have certification in order to dive?
No. PADI introduced what is known as a Discover Scuba Dive a few years ago to let people experience the underwater world before making the plunge into diving certification.
What are the best dive sites on Bali?
It all depends on your diving experience really. Bali has dive sites ranging from the very easy to the very advanced. It may be more enjoyable for a newly certified diver to dive on one of the easy or moderate sites, while a very experienced diver may prefer to take on the challenge of a very advanced dive site. You can learn more about the different dive sites on Tulamben, Padang Bai, Nusa Penida and Amed by clicking on the location name. You can also find out about the Advanced Dive Sites on Bali here.
Do I need to bring anything with me?
The only things we recommend people to bring on their trips and courses are sunglasses and sunblock, a towel and maybe some money for breakfast along the way or an ice cream. Everything else will be taken care of by us and is included in the cost of your course/dive trip. We do recommend that you request that your resort or hotel supply you with a packed breakfast though. Most good hotels on Bali are more than happy to do this. You can find out more about what is included in your course/dive trip here.
Do I need to buy any equipment?
We will supply all the equipment you need to do a course or a days diving, all included in your original cost. However, it’s always an advantage to have your own diving gear, so if you want to buy some, we hae some helpful tips on how to buy, fit and care for your gear in our Tips and Stories
How do I book a dive course or a dive trip?
It really couldn’t be simpler. Either send us an email on [email protected] or use “Contact Us“. We will answer your query with all the information you requested and then once you confirm you are happy, we will then simply issue you with a Paypal invoice to cover the cost of the course/trip and send you a link to our online registration form. This will give us all the information we need to confirm your booking and supply the equipment you need to dive. Then you will get a confirmation from us that you are booked in, and around 3pm the day before your trip we will send you an email with a pickup time from your accommodation. It literally could not be easier.
I may need some larger tanks because I feel like my Air Consumption is high. Can you guys provide them?
Absolutely. We can get larger tanks for you at a small extra cost. However, we actually have some tips in our Tips and Stories to help you improve your air consumption. We will be adding more over time too so make sure you check back for any updates.
I have no certification but I would like to begin diving. What is the first course I must take?
The first course on the PADI diving curriculum is PADI Open Water Diver. This is a course everyone must complete to truly enjoy the underwater world.
I am a certified PADI Open Water Diver. What is my next step?
The next rung on the PADI ladder is PADI Advanced Open Water Diver. This will extend your depth limit to 30 meters and give you more advanced knowledge to become a great diver.
I am a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver. What is my next level?
After the PADI Advanced Open Water course you can take the Emergency First Responder and PADI Rescue Diver Course. We highly recommend you do both of these courses together as they tie very closely to each other and the knowledge carries over.
I want to become a Professional Diver. How do I go about this?
To become a PADI Professional you must first have at least 40 logged dives and be a Certified Rescue Diver. You can then become a PADI Divemaster which is the foundation that all of PADI’s professional staff is built on.
Who are PADI?
PADI, the Professional Association of Diving Instructors, is the largest recreational dive organization in the world and is the certifying body for most recreational divers.
Can I bring some coral or maybe a shark home with me?
Coral, definitely no. A shark? Well, if you can sneak one past us then you are welcome to it. As long as you name it after us. We take our responsibility to the underwater world very seriously at 2REP Divers Bali. As professional divers, we are aware of the delicate balance of life on our reefs and in our seas. If you would like some tips on how to minimize our impact on the environment and the oceans, please visit our “Bali Dive Site Conservation” page and consider making a donation to your local environmental conservation society.
