Dune Penida : a unique 3-meter deep pool

The swimming pool is emblematic of the ambition of the dive center. Its design meets all the objectives of professional scuba diving courses and amazing fun dives.

An awesome tool for scuba diving initiation and courses

The pool is divided in two parts. In shallow water people who never dived get used to the equipment. And breathe for the first time underwater. The 3-meter deep part of the pool is very important for a complete initiation before going at sea. Because the first meters are the most important to properly equalize the pressure in the middle ear with the outside pressure underwater. And when you master all the exercises in the reassuring setting of a pool, you enjoy even more your diving at sea ! It would be a shame not to enjoy diving with Manta Rays because you were poorly prepared, would’t it ?

The pool is also more than 10 meter long because some of the PADI courses require this length.You indeed develop basic scuba diving skills in a pool for your PADI Open Water Course. And you will also practice some of the exercices in the pool before performing them at sea.

The swimming pool is also very reassuring to reactivate the licence of divers who have not been scuba diving for a long time.

Dune Penida instructors have a sound knowledge of Nusa Penida diving sites

Nusa Penida diving sites are world famous, but they are also pretty technical. The current can indeed be quite intense in Nusa Penida islands (Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Ceningan). So diving with an instructor who knows the least characteristic of each dive site is an important asset. Guarantee of a successful dive during which you will see the max you can hope for, while being in total safety. Especially if you are looking for the Mola Mola !

And a guarantee of successful training whether you come for a discovery dive, a PADI certification or a more advanced diving course. The center recently certified a rescue diver who completed all her training after she originally was only looking after a snorkeling session with Manta Rays !

Dune Penida dive center equipment

New and well maintained equipment is an important asset for great fun dives. But the dive center also has all the necessary equipment to dive safely. Including two essential equipment for safety : a radio and an oxygen kit on board of the boat.

Diving initiation in the pool

If you always wanted to breath underwater and never dared to ask, Dune Penida dive instructors will be present at the infinity pool every day between 4 and 6 pm. They will propose a 30 minute initiation to diving to Adiwana Warnakali guests. And after the initiation, at 6 pm, the pool is also a great place for relaxation. It is perched on a hill overlooking Lembongan Strait. To the east, an amazing view of Mount Agung. To the west, great sunsets. So even for those who do not wish to take the plunge, the place is worth the trip. The dive center organizes sunset aperitifs even if you are not guest of the resort. It consists of an introduction to scuba diving. It starts with a discovery dive in the pool, followed by an aperitif at sunset. A very romantic experience if you travel as a couple !
