Get PADI NITROX certified @ 120 Euro or with your Advanced Course @ 90 Euro only!

Dive Nitrox @ Lumba Lumba Diving Centre- Pulau Weh - Aceh - Indonesia

Dive Nitrox @ Lumba Lumba Diving Centre- Pulau Weh – Aceh – Indonesia

The Enriched Air Diver (Nitrox) course trains you to dive with Enriched Air – air with extra added oxygen up to 40, which gives you more no-decompression dive time. This means maximizing your time underwater at the beautiful 25-35m depths of Pulau Weh. It also shortens your necessary surface intervals (more dives in a day!) and adds extra conservatism to your dives.

The complete PADI Enriched Air Specialty course consists of practical applications, theory and an open water training dive.

Price:
120 Euro 1 Training Dive
155 Euro 2 Training Dives

The course fee includes the online PADI Enriched Air Diver Manual, dive computer rental (if you don’t have your own nitrox compatible computer), instructor fees, certification costs and nitrox tanks for the training dives. Note: the manual in book-form has a 10 Euro surcharge.

Or do the Nitrox Training Dive during your Advanced Course. With some extra theory you can get certified as PADI Enriched Air Diver for an additional 90 Euro (certification and online manual included)

Whaleshark sighting!

The morning of the 5th of December we spotted a Whale Shark on Batee Tokong! As far as we know, it has been the first Whale Shark seen around Pulau Weh since a while. Last one we saw was 4 years ago at the same place in the same period. Very exciting! All the divers were first-time spotters, including our guide Joel and our new star/spotter Taufiq!

Hyperbaric Chamber Opens in Sabang

A Hyperbaric (decompression) Chamber opened in Sabang (the ‘capita’ of Pulau Weh) this month. This is fantastic news and a luxury to have a chamber so nearby! It can house 6 people at a time (or a brancard).

6 seats, still in plastic!
