Learning to scuba dive has never been more convenient! Whether you’re on the go or want to take it slow, now you can complete the knowledge development portion of your PADI course online with PADI eLearning. It’s a great match for your active schedule and after you complete all the segments, you can print your eLearning record and bring it with you to start your underwater adventures as soon as you arrive on Gili Trawangan. 

The e-learning module is fairly self explanatory but if you have any questions during the study process, please feel free to contact us by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by telephone + 62 (0) 370 613 2424. Please note that e-learning does end up being more expensive as you will pay PADI directly for the theory portion of the course on top of Blue Marlin's discounted course price.

You will be able to print a "Certificate of completion" which you can bring with you as proof all the study aspects have been successfully completed.
That simply leaves the fun aspects of the course when you are here in Gili Trawangan; a quick knowledge refresher, pool dives and four ocean dives.

You’ll learn and master dive skills from one of our highly-trained PADI Instructors during confined and open water dives. The skills you learn during these dives will prepare you to explore a whole new world. Start today on a lifetime of adventure and fun!
