discovery dive

1 dive: 1.100.000 IDR

2 dives: 2.000.000 IDR

Would you like to try scuba diving for the first time? Or perhaps you did try it but it's been a few years. Doing a discovery dive is a great way to get your feet wet and decide whether or not scuba diving is the hobby for you. Scuba diving along the reefs of Raja Ampat is truly a privilege that one should take advantage of if making the trip all the way to Raja Ampat. Although the currents can be strong in Raja Ampat, we conduct our courses in calm areas where you won't have to struggle with any current. 

For the first discovery dive you will be one on one or in a small group with an instructor. After a long briefing given by the instructor you will learn how to use your gear on a basic level. You will also be taught the four basic skills you will have to perform underwater. After doing those skills you will be able to enjoy swimming peacefully along the reef and marvel at the abundant sea life going to a maximum depth of 6 meters. If you choose to do a second discovery dive you can go up to 12 meters.

skills refresh

1 dive:
900.000 IDR

2 dives: 1.700.000 IDR

You're a certified diver but it's been longer than one year since you did your last dive. A skills refresh is just what you need to shake off the cobwebs by reviewing the important principles and skills of scuba diving. After a skills refresh with one of our instructors you will be able to join the fun diving groups.

Open water

6.500.000 IDR
4 dives

An open water diver is technically an autonomous diver who can go up to 18 meters deep. They can join other certified divers on fun dives led by a divemaster. The Open Water Course is the first step in becoming a competent, skilled diver. The course is very complete, covering many underwater exercises and theoretical concepts essential in knowing how to dive safely. 

Soul Scuba Divers Open Water Course is made up of two confined water dives that are basically skill sessions. Next students go on four open water dives with their instructor, practicing skills such as using a compass underwater or releasing a surface marker buoy, while also seeing the amazing underwater world of Raja Ampat. The course typically takes three days to finish. You are required to know how to swim before we can certify you, though our instructors could take an extra day to conduct swimming lessons if necessary. 

Advanced Adventurer

5.900.000 IDR
5 dives

Take your skills to the next level with the Advanced Adventurer Course. While the Open Water course is more in-depth on the theoretical side of diving, the advanced adventurers focus more on practical diving skills. Your instructor will expand your understanding and abilities in key areas of diving such as buoyancy, navigation, deep diving, night diving, fish identification, diving in currents and waves, and so on. Visit SSI's website to learn more about the Advanced Adventurer course.


After gaining an Advanced Adventurer certification, you can join the advanced diving groups as you can dive to a maximum depth of 30 meters and join night diving (as long as you completed the night diving/limited visibility dive during your advanced adventurer course--the deep dive is required for the course). 

stress + rescue

4 dives
6.200.000 IDR

The Stress and Rescue course is perfect for the diver who wants to be more capable to manage their stress as well as the stress of others in any situation.
