Take recreational diving to the next level with professional dive qualifications


At Downbelow we take all diver training very seriously and when it comes to professional courses we have a dedicated team of highly qualified instructors & course directors who teach, guide and offer advice to all candidates.

Based on the understanding that every professional level candidate will need to find employment within the dive industry we prepare and train each individual to excel in the scuba diving workplace.

Learn more about Downbelow’s Go PRO Instructor Development Team.

Our diver training facilities at the PADI 5 Star IDC Centre on Gaya Island and KK Times Square on the mainland, are ideally suited to all PADI Courses.

It provides year round access to our confined water area directly in front of our dive centre and open water dive sites a giant stride from our jetty or minutes away by speedboat.

All our PADI professional courses can be taken as a stand alone course or, for a longer period of time, through Go PRO internships.
