With the use of solar energy from 2012, we are planning to go even greener!

  • Recycling of all bottles, plastic etc
  • Refills for mineral water at the Ocean Cafe
  • Low energy light fittings throughout the resort
  • Rainwater collection and recycling
  • Use of 4stroke engines (more efficient, quieter and cleaner)

Why not study online before you arrive in Indonesia to maximise your time underwater on the diving course.
Register here for your SSI Online Training. Its easy!

PADI & SSI "What's the difference?.. None!" They are basically both the same. All diving courses are governed by the RSTC and the content is standardized. Therefore all diving certifications are valid for life and completely interchangeable within all other dive agencies. Although all our instructors can teach PADI and SSI, we prefer to teach SSI because it gives us more flexibility with the scheduling etc. thus, allowing us to customize the diving courses to give you the best quality learning experience. Normally our diving courses are conducted "one on one" or in very small groups! With Black Marlin Diving you learn at your own pace assuring success with professional support at every stage. SSI is GREENER! - Due to not having to sell you the manual, but instead you can just use ours, we help the environment a little bit with reduced waste and it also allows us to pass on this saving to you with a better price for your diving course (see above). All teaching materials are available online for life at the SSI website www.divessi.com. Please have look at this website to see what a quality course it is, using all aspects of IT to improve the learning experience like studying online before you arrive. SSI is the second largest dive agency in the world and is expanding fast. We look forward to teaching you here in Sulawesi.


We Accept :

  • Rupiah
  • Euro
  • US Dollars (Post 1996)
  • Visa & Mastercards


If you are paying at the dive resort for your accommodation, we much appreciate the payment to be in cash Rupiah, as we are far from banks. For diving, credit cards or Euros cash are fine. Many thanks.

 


BANK POLICY

"Due to fussy bank policy in Indonesia any dollars that are not in excellent condition will be exchanged at a lower rate as our bank will not accept them. Best to pay with a credit card in this situation. Thanks for your understanding."
