Course Information

Why are your course fees more expensive than the rest of the dive centres I have enquired?

Most of the dive centres are adopting a 1:4 or 5 student ratio, lowering the operating cost of the instructor onboard of the vessel. We do not want to compete on pricing at the risk of forsaking safety protocols. An ideal class is 1:2 or 1:3 (instructor to student) in limited visibility like Pulau Hantu.

And while most dive centres are still using the traditional manual and classroom, we have learnt from the Circuit Breaker, online learning is significantly more beneficial for students.

How BAD is the visibility in Pulau Hantu?

On a good day, we can enjoy visibility up to 3 to 4 metres. But on most day, the expected visibility is 1 metre or less, hence the main reason why we want to reduce the instructor to student ratio.

w

I am Myopic. Can I dive?

Of course you can. There are two options for you. You can either choose to dive with daily disposal contact lens or you can opt to invest in a good pair of scuba diving mask with prescriptive lens

w

I am Claustrophobic. Is that gonna cause a problem?

If you think you are suffering from either agoraphobia or claustrophobia, we would suggest that you have a word with your doctor and inform us that you would like to have a 1 to 1 instructor for your own safety. But we have conducted courses for divers suffering from either conditions.

w

I am above 50 years old. Can I still dive?

There is no maximum age. As long as your medical clearance is done and your family doctor has certified you that you are fit for diving, then it will not be an issue. However, we might modify part of the training to suit your current needs.

Why is there a major price difference between the PADI E-Learning and Hardcopy Manual?

The new PADI E-Learning materials have many advantages. The first thing we have heard from the students is that they are able to focus better on learning in the comfort of their own house. Another reason is, they can learn the material at their own convenience without wasting too much time traveling to the dive school.

Last but not least, the E-Learning materials are more conducive and interactive.

Can my kids to the course at Pulau Hantu as well?

At this moment of time, this is the only option really. However, we children attending the lessons, the ratio is strictly 1:2 and if you would like, we do have 1:1 class ratio prices as well.

w

I am really obese. Is that gonna be a problem?

Nope, not an issue at all. As long as your doctor signs on your medical form and have given you clearance to dive, there is absolutely no reason why you can’t

w

I am not a strong swimmer. Can I still dive?

As long as you are able to meet the pre-requisite, we do not see why not. However, if you have just picked up swimming and still have water confidence issues, we would suggest that you sign up for a 1 to 1 Instructor classes.

w

Can my children learn diving with me?

Yes, of course. As long as they are ten years old and older, and have met all the pre-requisite, we do not see why not. However, for children who are participating in a course, we do not allow a class bigger than 2 people in a group.
