PADI OPEN WATER DIVER COURSE
Get Certify as a PADI Scuba Diver in Pulau Hantu Singapore
If you are unable to travel to Bali for your basic scuba diving course, it is possible to complete your training right here in Singapore. The experience might not be as good, compared to diving in Bali, but it is still an option to complete your training right here in Singapore.
We do not operate the boat traveling between Singapore and Pulau Hantu, so potential divers have to bear in mind that the dates are subjected to availability of the boat. If you are flexible in scheduling, and not able to travel, then this is a good option.
But please take note, due to the water condition in Singapore, the visibility of water is only between 1 to 2
