Message from Annabel

Dear AquaMarine Diving – Bali Associate

September marks AMD-B’s 22nd Birthday! Thank you to everyone who’s dived with us, and recommended AMD-B to friends, family and fellow divers, over the years. I take great pleasure from seeing people discover Bali’s amazing diving! I’d also like to thank my staff, past and present, who have all contributed so much.

September is also my birthday 🙂 Perhaps unsurprisingly, I’ve asked for donations to AMD-B’s crowdfunding for our furloughed (at home without pay) dive staff and drivers.

For PADI’s ‘AWARE Week’ (AMD-B extended the dates a little) we added-in Beach and Underwater (‘Dive Against Debris’) Clean-ups on the 18th, in addition to which we have a Webinar series.

Exciting news! AMD-B has launched our newest product: The PADI Sea Slug & Nudibranch Conservation Specialty! Written by Aan – with a massive amount of help from Joana! – we’re all so proud of them! for more details.

As Bali is still under partial lockdown (but we hope soon to be lifted!), most AMD-B

office staff are working 1day/week so please be patient when you email us 🙂

And finally, I’m delighted to report we have some future bookings for Christmas and New Year, as well as in the first half of 2022!

AMD-B’s New PADI Distinctive Specialty

AMD-B has some exciting news!
We have launched our newest product: The PADI Sea Slug & Nudibranch Conservation Specialty! Written by Aan – with a massive amount of help from Joana! – So proud of them!

This course will increase your general knowledge of sea slugs and nudibranchs. You will also learn about their physiology and the key features that separate them, reproduction including courtship and mating, their lifecycle, habitats, diet and how they eat.


Divemaster Internship Jul – Sep Progress

Despite lockdown preventing us from diving most of the time, under the guidance of his mentor Aan, Bram has continued to make progress on his Divemaster programme. In addition to completing all DM exams, he’s passed the ‘Instructor-level’ demonstration of PADI’s 24 Basic Skills plus continues to take the opportunity to work on maintenance of AMD-B’s dive gear.

Many PADI courses can be done online and this is an ideal way for you to learn. It is entirely flexible for those with busy schedules and you can commit as much or little time to it as you would like. It's also a great way for you to improve your knowledge of diving during the times you cannot dive, with PADI eLearning you don't have to wait until your next dive to improve your diving.
