Learn to Dive!

Murex Pool Dive CourseMurex Manado and Bangka are PADI dive centers. Murex dive centers are Aqua Lung partners’ and we have full dive equipment rentals available. At Murex Resorts we offer dive courses from beginner to pro, and our dive course instructors speak English, German, Dutch, French and Indonesian.

Murex Manado’s pool is four meters deep and is purposely built for training, perfect for your PADI pool sessions.

Safety and quality is our first priority, but we haven’t forgotten about convenience: We allow you to work your dive course around your holiday, and prevent your holiday from revolving around your dive course. You can save valuable holiday time by completing the knowledge development work at home.

Enriched Air Courses

The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is PADI’s most popular specialty scuba dive course. Why? Because scuba diving with enriched air or Nitrox gives you more no-decompression time, especially on repetitive dives. If staying down longer and getting back in the water sooner sounds appealing, don’t hesitate to become an enriched air diver.

The Deep Diver Specialty is designed to be an introduction to deep diving and to help the student develop the necessary skills, knowledge, and techniques to safely participate in deep diving.
