PADI Open Water Course - Scuba Diving Lessons, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

The PADI Open Water Course takes 4 days to complete (8.00 am till 4.00 pm daily) and courses offered by Downbelow are all inclusive with no hidden charges !

At Downbelow your safety is paramount, we have a large staff team to accommodate different client requirements.

We adhere to PADI Standards and Procedures and follow British HSE guidelines.

Our ratio is no more than four people on a course with 2 PADI professionals, your PADI instructor and a Divemaster.

Most of the time we have 2 people on a course with 1 PADI Instructor.

Peter and Paddy chose to save a day on this course and completed the academic portion online in their own time through the PADI eLearning system of education. Peters wife Sandy also joined Peter on the island, she enjoyed snorkeling on our crowd free house reef with our snorkeling guide.

Peter wrote a very nice email to us after completing his course, the email can be viewed in our Guest Book, he has also uploaded some great pictures.

Our PADI 5 Star Dive Centre known as the Beach House is located within the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park on Gaya Island where “Rainforest meets the Reef” located just 10 mins boat ride from the City of Kota Kinabalu (KK).

We have a very quiet lagoon for our confined water training, we have a very special house reef with lots of marine life and all dive sites are within 5 minutes boat ride from our centre.

We have many non divers joining us for the day who wish to snorkel or go trekking so if your friends or family wish to join, it would be a great way for you all to still be together during your course.

We have some excellent walking trails around the dive station all set in primary rain-forest and guides can be arranged for all activities.

So please join our recent clients and become a PADI Open Water Diver in Kota Kinabalu, email us now for a quick response.
