Fulfilling your dream of getting an open water diving certification. Without a regular income, on a tight budget. What should you expect to pay to get the open water diver in Indonesia and what location would be a good compromise of price and safety? That’s good to know, You might move that to a later time then.Is there anywhere you would recommend going after having taken the course?
Go to bali for the course. You can take it with bali scuba. And for komodo you have to be at least in advance level with decent skill since the current in komodo is always challenging. Don’t dive in komodo if your diving skill isn’t good enough to dive in strong current, it’s for your own safety.
Bali, there are a lots of dive spot to dive like menjangan, tulamben, amed or padangbai.. you can go to lombok as well and when you reach advance level or if your skill is good enough, then you can go to banda, Manado, gorontalo or even raja ampat & komodo.

Trust me, if your skill isn’t good enough, the dive guide won’t take you to the beautiful spots where most of them have strong current like in komodo, manado or raja ampat.
