PADI IDC Course Asia informs you all about Downbelow’s PADI Instructor Development Course IDC in Kota Kinabalu, capital city of Sabah, a state of Malaysia, which is in the heart of South East Asia.


A PADI IDC Instructor Development Course in South East Asia is an all-year-round option, because the major benefit of South East Asia is its perpetual summer. Specifically Kota Kinabalu, Sabah on the island of Borneo, which is not affected by monsoons and thus great for diving all year round!

Your South East Asia PADI Instructor Development Course IDC, apart from great weather, comes with another great benefit – warm waters; with water temperatures often in the high 20′s, we dive, on average in 30°C (82.4°F) waters – makes you never want to get out!

The region is a cheap destination, so when it comes to food, accommodation and transport for your PADI Instructor Development Course IDC in South East Asia, your pocket wins.

Quality is never compromised, and Downbelow’s Go PRO IDC Team ensures high standards and stringent safety procedures during your IDC or professional SCUBA diving internship.

Before or after your Instructor Development Course IDC, there are many places to explore in South East Asia, and what makes it very appealing for travelers is that there are so many countries within close proximity to each other. Bus or ferries are often alternatives to flying for getting from one country to the next.

In spite of being so close to each other, South East Asian countries each have their distinct culture and are steeped in traditions.



Although technology advanced, culture remains an important aspect of South East Asian nations, of which you’ll get a healthy dose during your PADI IDC Instructor Development Course in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.

When it comes to diving, South East Asia is one of the prime regions in the world. The diving industry is thriving and there are many dives sites in South East Asia which feature on the best places in the world to dive, which is why a PADI IDC here makes perfect sense.
