Dive safety is serious business at our Downbelow operations, so as to maintain our high standard of quality dive education, and PADI support us in various ways too!

PADI Asia Pacific Regional Manager Johnny Chew visits our Kota Kinabalu HQ to discuss with Downbelow Marketing Director Joanne, how our dive operations are coping with conducting diver education at our premier PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre since the recent changes to PADI standards.

Diver education is always evolving to improve diver safety, and PADI standards change due to global statistics on the management of dive emergencies and the World Recreational Scuba Training Council (WRSTC).

Resident Platinum PADI Course Director Richard Swann regularly conducts workshops for our full time and dedicated team of PADI Instructors to maintain the consistency of our diver training!

Get more details on the dive safety guidelines implemented in our dive operations when you contact our HQ. One of our friendly and helpful travel experts will create a program for you to receive a high standard of quality dive education and of diver safety at our Gaya Island beach house in Sabah, Borneo!
