SSI Basic Course
SSI’s Advanced Adventurer program was created so that you can try out a variety of specialties before you commit to completing a full program.
As it is similar to the Advanced Open Water Course, it’s a great way to experience what advanced training is all about and how valuable it can be to your diving adventures. During the Advanced Adventurer Program, you will have the chance to try out 5 different specialties. You will complete one open water training dive per specialty, and if you decide to take a full program in any of the specialties you tried, the dive you took can be applied to your advanced certification.
Tioman Island (or Pulau Tioman, as it is known locally) is one of Malaysia's most popular islands, where the white sand beaches overhung by towering palm trees are lapped by clear, calm, and warm water teeming with all sorts of tropical marine life.
Diving in Bintan is perfect for beginners or a quick getaway.
The untouched nature of the dive sites also appeals to experienced divers, especially those with an interest in macro-life.
