FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can I arrange for a guided dive?
Of course! The reefs that we visit are easily navigable for all levels of diver, and we offer guided dives for all of them!
Do I need my own equipment?
No. Bali Marine Diving can supply you with all required equipment you may need for any dive or snorkel package, charged at an additional cost. You may of course, bring your own gear if you so wish.
If a friend / partner is a certified diver or non-diver, can they come on the same trip with me whilst I’m on the course?
Yes, they will be buddied with another certified diver onboard while you complete your 4 training dives. There is plenty of time throughout the trip to snorkel and socialise with a non-diver if you are travelling with someone who doesn’t dive/snorkel.
I have forgotten / lost my certification card / license, can I still dive?
Yes, as long as you provide evidence of your certification. This can include a logbook or a verification letter from your certifying dive company. You can also obtain evidence by contacting your original certifying organisations.
We can provide assistance in this area if you are PADI affiliated.
When can I fly next after diving?
PADI standards recommend you wait at least 24 hours after your last dive before flying in order to avoid decompression sickness. You should also endeavour to avoid doing activities that require you to reach high altitudes.
