Here’s what your day will look like when you dive with BADLADZ Scuba Diving:
Arrive at 8:00 a.m. for a briefing.
You’ll arrive at 8:00 in the morning at our dive shop to start the day. Our dive professionals will give you a briefing of which diving spots you’re going to visit, and what you’ll be able to see and experience there. If this is your first time diving, you’ll also get a safety briefing and an explanation of the basics of diving.
Put on your diving gear.
Then it’s time to kit up in your own gear, or the rental gear provided by us. Our staff will carry the equipment to the boat for you, which is docked right in front of the dive shop.
Boat trip to the dive site.
We’ll take a short 5 to 10 minute boat trip to the dive site. In the meantime, you’ll be able to enjoy the beautiful scenery of Puerto Galera Bay (which is absolutely stunning).
Prepare for first dive.
Once we arrive at the dive site, our staff helps you put your equipment on. Our dive pros give another short safety briefing for this specific dive site, and they’ll point out what interesting things you’ll be able to see underwater.
Now fully ready, we jump in the water and start the dive, where you can enjoy the freedom of the beautiful underwater world. Each dive lasts around an hour, depending on depth and how long your air lasts. If you still need to learn certain skills, this is when our instructors will teach them to you. During the dive, our dive masters are swimming right beside you to offer you help, and point out interesting things under water.
Then you’ll take a quick break to rest up and let your body refresh from the dive. We’ll take you to a restaurant or bar where you can have a drink, discuss the dive, look at pictures or just sit in the sun and relax. While you’re relaxing, the staff is looking after your equipment, to make sure you’re ready for the next dive.
Dive at second dive site.
After the break, we’ll take you to the second dive spot. You’ll get another briefing and another dive. You could explore a completely different dive site, or just have more of the same – whatever you want!
Note: After your second dive we head back to the dive shop ready for some delicious lunch. After lunch if your ready for more underwater fun we can take you out for another two dives or just one afternoon dive, it’s entirely up to you.
Refresh and relax.
After a nice long day of diving, we’ll take you back to the dive shop. You can have a hot shower in your room or in the dive shop, and relax or talk about the wonderful dives you’ve had. The staff will clean and rinse the equipment to ready for the next dive.
Update log book.
We’ll sign or stamp your diving logbook if you want us to, and give you all the information about the dives you did so you can log them.
Enjoy rest of the day.
You’ll get back early so you have the rest of your day to relax or do whatever you want.
Afterwards, we’ll send you any pictures we took of you diving if you want us to.
At BADLADZ, safety is paramount to how we conduct our daily business operations and our daily lives. We highly encourage our all our guests to also be highly aware and practice good safety practices when they are diving or living their every day lives. We at BADLADZ are proud to support DAN Asia-Pacific (DAN AP).
Divers Alert Network
The Divers Alert Network (DAN) is a global network of not-for-profit, member-based, dive safety organizations working for the safety of all divers through education, research and training.
Divers Alert Network AP provides Worldwide Emergency Evacuation Coverage and optional Dive Injury (Treatment) Insurance Services for Members. In addition the organization is responsible for funding and/or manning 24-hour diving emergency hotlines throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
DAN AP is a part of the International DAN Federation of Dive Safety Organizations with worldwide Membership presently exceeding 300,000.
Wherever members live or dive around the world they have peace of mind knowing that DAN is available 24-hours a day, 7 days a week to assist in the event of an accident/illness.
Why is it so important that as Divers we are protected with DAN Membership and Dive Injury (Treatment) Insurance?
It’s all about being prepared for the unexpected, namely dive accidents and illnesses. It’s essential that divers have a reputable organization to call that will be able to co-ordinate a rescue effort and get them to the most appropriate treatment for their injury or illness. And then there is the issue of cost.
DAN protection ensures the diver will not be lumbered with the burden of a potentially hefty invoice in the event of an accident or illness.
Divers Alert Network was involved in the evacuation of a paralyzed diver from the Solomon Islands to Australia. The evacuation cost was around AUD$90,000 (as an aircraft had to be sourced from far away). In addition, the treatment costs were in excess of US$30,000, plus on-going expenses.
The essence of DAN Membership & Dive Injury (Treatment) Insurance is about being prepared. DAN offers members peace-of-mind, which comes from knowing they have the experts in diver accident management to call in the event of a diving accident or illness.
