Discover the marine life beneath the beautiful sea around Bintan specially off its north coast, home to many reef fishes, schooling fishes, cuttlefishes, octopi, turtles, soft and hard corals and many more. Bintan provides great locations for both new and experienced divers as the waters are calm and clear through the main season. Basically you can dive in Bintan all year round, however during the month of December to February the condition is more suitable for experienced divers.

Basic safety guidelines and skills needed to dive under the direct supervision of a professional will be provided.
