For a peace of mind, divers are strongly advised on getting your own personal travel insurance that covers scuba diving. Both NTUC and AIG Travel Guard has insurance covering scuba diving as an activity.

Such insurance can easily be purchased online or even via an ATM machine these days. Get yourself insured today and travel with a ease of mind.

UNDERWATER CAMERA

For those bring along your digital camera, remember to pack your chargers, adapters, spare batteries and memory cards. And for those who are planning to charge multiple devices, bring along an extension power strip as most resorts will provide only up to 2 power sockets.

If you are new to diving and wish to rent a digital camera, check with our in-house instructor if you can rent one from us.

SPECIAL DIET | VEGAN

Are you a vegetarian or do you have a special diet that you have not informed us? If you are a vegan, please inform our instructor on duty if you like your meal with or without eggs.

We have informed the resort to prepare some delicacies without meat and they are extremely tasty, including the famous Vegetarian Chap Chay Rice.

CASH

Bring along Rupiah and US dollars for personal spending and tipping. Do take note that the locals make only about SGD$ 150.00 a month. IDR 100,000 (less than SGD$ 10) tip per person per day to a local that has helped you would be nice.
We strongly recommend tipping the locals who are helping you with your tanks, food and room cleaning.

INTERNET ADDICTS

If you need internet or addicted to it, be reminded to activate your roaming services. Data roaming prices for Singapore Telcos are generally about SG$ 15.00 a day.

Alternatively, you can get a Indonesia Prepaid 3G card which is generally cheaper. WIFI is also available at the resorts we are staying.

ENTERTAINMENT SPA

ENTERTAINMENT

Both resorts we are offering has cable TV available. However, the channels are limited. If you need to watch a movie before going to sleep, we would strongly suggest you bring along your own entertainment.

Please inform our instructor to do a pit stop and get some tidbits, carbonated drinks and drinking water for your room. Dinner is available only to 9pm, so having some munchies in your room is a great idea.
