The PADI Scuba Diver Course is a subset of the PADI Open Water Diver Course. If you’re short on time but really want to become a diver, the PADI Scuba Diver rating might be right for you ̶ particularly if you expect to go scuba diving primarily with a dive guide. This course is an intermediate step for earning an Open Water Diver certification, if that’s your ultimate goal.

PADI Scuba Divers are qualified to:

  • Dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional to a maximum depth of 12 metres/40 feet.
  • Obtain air fills, rent or purchase scuba equipment and participate in dive activities as long as properly supervised.
  • Continue dive training by completing the PADI Open Water Diver certification and taking certain specialty diver courses.

For the boat trips with the open water dives, we go diving around all three Gili Islands, which offer a variety of dive sites around Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air. We choose the two best dive sites on a daily basis, depending on the ocean conditions, and each dive is up to one hour long.

You can contact us anytime by email to make a reservation or to simply inquire with any questions you have! When you arrive on Gili Trawangan, we need you to confirm your course start by dropping by the dive center the day before your course is scheduled to start. During this time, you can fill out all the prerequisite paperwork and even get a head start on studying your dive theory by taking one of our tablets with you to your accommodation.

The Prerequisites

  • At least 10 years old
  • Ability to swim
  • Medical Clearance for any pre existing conditions. [ download the medical form here ]
  • Please send us an email, call us or drop by at DSM Dive to make your reservation at least 24 h in advance
  • There are strict restrictions when flying to altitude after diving. You need to wait a minimum of 18 hours after your last dive, so please plan your flights and mountain hiking trips accordingly.


In the dive industry, the booking has to be completed at least one day before the course. Diving is not too complicated, but it takes a lot of logistical support and organization. Each diver has to come in person in the dive center to complete the pre course paperwork and to receive the teaching material. With your instructor, we will explain your personal plan and how the course will be proceed.
