Open Water and Advanced Diver – how the package works

Book My Dive Course Package


If you are confident that you will enjoy diving, the Open Water and Advanced Diver is the package to go for. The benefits are many, and the value is outstanding!!

By doing these two courses back to back you will become a much more confident and comfortable diver. Not to mention that you get to see a lot more of our wonderful dive sites and amazing creatures.

Some Open Water students feel that they are not ready to tackle the Advanced Course. Subjectively, this may be true, but if you have successfully completed the Open Water course, and enjoyed it, then you are ready for the Advanced course! Since the Advanced Course is not as academic as the Open Water course, the dives actually feel closer to regular fun dives.

And don’t worry what other people might think. All diving professionals know that there is a difference between an Advanced diver with 9 dives in his log book, and one with 90 – the guy with more experience should have done his Rescue Course long ago!


You do not even have to book this package to take advantage of this great offer. If you do your Open Water Diver course with me and then decide to go on and complete the Advanced Course concurrently, I will offer it at the same package price. For those who live locally, or plan to visit here twice, I will go so far as to say that as long as you complete both courses in the same season, you will get a significant discount!

You need to be reasonably fit and healthy to undertake these PADI courses, so please check out the medical form below. Make sure that you can answer ‘No’ to all the questions on the first page. If you need to answer ‘Yes’ to any of the questions, print out the form, and seek the advice of your doctor. If he declares you fit to dive, please get him or her to fill out the form and then bring it with you when you visit.

Brand new for 2017 I am launching a Premium Service version of Scuba Guru’s dive offerings! The central idea is that those who select to use the Premium Service will have me exclusively during the course of their stay here in Salang. Whether for fun dives or diving courses I will take on no other customers than the Premium booking. Now that is truly unique to Scuba Guru! To find out more click the button below:

Premium Service Diving

Because I believe that not everyone gives themselves enough time to get the most out of their scuba diving course I have introduced a new deal for 2018. All of my students are welcome to one or even two days of extra training designed to suit them and their needs.

You can read the full blog here:

The training will be up to two shore per day dives in beautiful Salang Bay. The students can have either one or two days of training at the bargain price of RM 180.00 per day.


We will obviously cover equipment assembly, the buddy check, entry, decent, ascent and exit. We can also cover any skills that either the student or I feel that would be of benefit to them. We will also develop the underwater skills of body position, fin kicks, buddy co-ordination and critically buoyancy skills.

I appreciate that not everyone can get extended leave, which is one of the reasons they don’t have enough time, so I am prepared to offer the option of allowing them to return at a later date, but within the same season. Since there is a continuum to learning this is not the best way to take advantage of this offer.

Even if you completely ace your course at this price it is cheaper than my regular shore dives, so I encourage all my students to take full advantage of this offer.

Happy diving – and stay safe!

All the required course materials, equipment, and certification fees are included in the price.
