I hope that whatever your other New Year’s Resolutions, you’re including “Diving in Bali”.

Several people bought AMD-B vouchers in the run-up to Christmas: We can supply vouchers at any time of the year. They can be specific: eg Day Trip to Tulamben Bay, a PADI course; or they can be for a set amount.

Please note: You can now apply online for your Visa on Arrival and complete your Customs Form. Both will save you time when you arrive in Bali.

Below you will find (more) details for:

  • AMD-B’s 2023 11 Months ‘Zero-to-Hero PADI Divemaster Internship for Young Indonesians’

Blue Project by AMD-B

There’s Good News for Blue Project by AMD-B (AMD-B’s Conservation programme): We have a new(ish!) full-time Manager for Blue Project!

Aramita (Ara) was one of our 2020 PADI Divemaster Interns. For the past 3 years she has worked in the field of coral research and development. However Ara’s true passion is conservation so she’s re-joining us in January – we couldn’t be happier!

AMD-B was one of the first recipients of a PADI AWARE Foundation Mission Hub Community Grant so Ara’s first project will be to structure how-when-and-where AMD-B will use those funds. Yes, 2023 is going to be a great year for ‘BP by AMD-B’!

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.
