Blue Marlin is the perfect place in Labuan Bajo to begin your diving adventure or gain your next level of certification. As the only 5* PADI resort in town, we pride ourselves on our attention to detail. With our exclusive training pool, we can work one on one over an extended period of time to ensure you succeed and dramatically improve your diving!
Our instructors are all certified PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors or Master Scuba Diver Trainers. Hailing from all over the world, they teach in English, French, German, Dutch and Bahasa Indonesian. All courses are inclusive of dive computer rental for the duration of your course.
As part of PADI’s green initiative, each student is sent a digital copy of the course manual. Gone are the days when you have to carry around your diving manual or worry that you will lose or damage it! When you enrol in your PADI diving courses, we will register you on the PADI Pro website. Students can log onto the PADI website anytime to access their E-Book. However, you will be given a paper copy of the manual for use during your course. If you are pushed for time or just want to give yourself a head start on the theory, we recommend that you sign up for PADI's e-learning.
Blue Marlin is proud to be a 100% AWARE dive centre. In addition to digitalising the student manuals, for every course taken, Blue Marlin Komodo will donate $10 in your name to Project AWARE. This donation will help support protection for the world’s most threatened shark species and the removal and prevention of marine debris from treasured underwater environments. Plus, you get the Project AWARE version of your PADI certification card featuring a Manta ray!
Before you arrive in Komodo, you must be sure that you are in a suitable physical condition for the sport of diving. At the start of the course, every student must complete and sign a PADI Medical Statement, which includes a number of questions relating to your medical history. By answering the questions, you will discover if you'll require a doctor's check-up before taking to the water. (PADI insists on this if your medical history shows a 'contra-indication' to participating in diving.)
Answer each question carefully. If you are unsure of the answer to any of the questions, you should answer "yes". Sign and date the bottom of your statement.
If any of the answers you give to the questions are "yes", visit your doctor for a medical examination, taking your statement with you to show him/her*.
If your doctor is satisfied with your health, you are ready to start your course. However, you must bring BOTH your signed Medical Statement and your doctor's clearance with you to Komodo, as we are required to keep these with your training records.
