Begin your diving adventure or gain your next level of certification here with us in Raja Ampat!

Discover Scuba Diving Experience

If you have never tried diving in your life, this is the right choice for you. One of our instructors will introduce you to the basics of diving and take you to see some of the beautiful underwater world of Raja Ampat in a safe and comfortable way. The course takes half a day only; however, it will not qualify you to dive without instructor supervision.

Open Water Diver Course

If you are a beginner and planning to become a fully certified diver, we would be happy to do the open water diver course with you here in Raja Ampat.
We do however recommend doing as much as possible at home before coming to us, if you have the opportunity. For example, you can do the theory part with PADI eLearning online. You can also consider doing the confined water sessions with a local diving school at home. You can get a referral from them and we will finish the course with the open water sessions and exam.
That way you will get the most out of Raja Ampat and have much less course time on your holiday.

Advanced Open Water Diver Course

Raja Ampat with its great variety of dive sites is the perfect place to do this course! It will give you more confidence in the water and teaches you in greater depth about many important aspects of scuba diving. It takes usually two days and includes five adventure dives.

Nitrox Course

Nitrox tank fills are free of charge at Papua Explorers, so it’s really worth being Nitrox certified here! In a short course you will learn all you need to know and also practice analyzing your tanks and setting your dive computer accordingly.

Refresher Course

Maybe you haven’t dived in a while and would like to brush up on your skills. In that case it’s certainly a great idea to do a quick refresher with one of our instructors, gently easing you back into diving with confidence.


Our instructors are also qualified to teach various PADI specialty courses. This will enable you to take a deeper look into a certain topic. Therefore please feel free to ask us for availability of your desired specialty.

On some occasions we have limited spaces to take on trainees for a marine ecology internship and divemaster course right here in beautiful Raja Ampat. Please contact our reservations team for more information.
