Altough 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 divng 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 liittle 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 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 isexpanding fast. We look forward to teaching you here in Sulawesi.


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 you understanding.” WE ACCEPT: Rupiah, Euro 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.
