Diving With OrcaNation

At OrcaNation, we are passionate about the ocean and everything in it! Our founder, Jeroen van de Waal, even wrote a book about it!
As Asia's leading PADI five-star instructor development centre, we teach a wide variety of PADI dive courses, for complete beginners, all the way up to PADI Instructors. We focus on safety, quality and the preservation of our oceans. We use high-quality equipment that is regularly inspected and maintained, and even have specially selected equipment just for children.
Our standards follow highest possible Health, Safety, Environmental and Quality standards and our dive ratio is a maximum 4 students to 1 OrcaNation Dive Professional, which is much lower than PADI's recommended ration of 8:1.
