For the third consecutive year resident Platinum PADI Course Director Richard Swann is awarded the Platinum level for his contribution to professional scuba diving. The entire team are extremely proud, its a joint effort to achieve this level. This year only 66 PADI Course Directors worldwide achieved Platinum so Richard is one of only a select few.

Our premier PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre, based on Gaya Island in the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park, is where our PADI Instructor level courses are conducted. Our fully equipped custom built head office multi media classroom also plays a big role in our PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) and we run five every year to coincide with the Kota Kinabalu Instructor Examination (IE) schedule.

Within PADI Asia Pacific, Downbelow have built a steady reputation for high standards of safety in course training and activities and excellent customer service.
We are regularly awarded by PADI for outstanding contribution to instructor development, however it is recognized because of the real passion and commitment of our entire staff team.

Congratulations to resident Platinum PADI Course Director Richard Swann and to the Downbelow staff team!
