3 Day Open Water Cert

I did my open water cert with iDive and it was an amazing experience. At the beginning I was nervous and couldn't complete the skills underwater but iDive was very accommodating and let me practice in the pool to get more comfortable. The instructor was great and really helped me overcome my fear of diving. I highly recommend iDive for your next trip to Komodo!

I dove 2 days with idive Komodo and only wish I could have dove a few more days. I was recommended this dive operator by a dive instructor friend who has been all over the world, and I am so glad I took him up on his recommendation. While the diving in Komodo certainly doesn't disappoint, the vessel, crew members, and management of the operation are equally as impressive. Marcia was very helpful and friendly with organising my dives and logistics during the planning of my trip, Nelwan was a great cruise director and dive guide, and the cooked lunch on board was gourmet and plentiful (my friend and I remarked we wished we could have eaten it everyday). The diving in Komodo can be quite tricky due to the strong currents, I am a Divemaster and I was impressed by the attention to safety and catering to all skill levels...everyone was truly in good hands. Something that makes this dive operation unique, is that it is completely locally owned and run and that is an endeavour I am proud to support, especially one that is providing exceptional service. Thanks guys, can't wait to be back!

It was my first diving in life and iDive made my experience unforgottable. I was supposed to dive for only 2 days and I extended 1more day! I could have been diving for one more week! Thanks to Yulia and Shoraya for your kindness everyday! And especially to Mosquito, my open water instructor, for your smile, jokes and patience with me as a begginer. He made me feel so comfortable and enjoy every minut! I'm looking forward to coming back again!
