PADI IDC Course Borneo

Borneo is the 3rd largest island in the world, divided between Indonesia, Malaysia and Brunei.  Borneo‘s rainforest is the oldest in the world, even older than the Amazon!_DSC2684w

From the moment you hear the name Borneo, as it conjures up images of untamed jungle, clear ocean waters and untold treasures below the surface, you can already imagine yourself taking part in a PADI IDC Instructor Development Course in this unique corner of the world.

Through the other pages of you will come to realise why it’s a good choice for a PADI IDC Instructor Development Course in Borneo, but we’ll highlight the reasons unique to Borneo for you on this page.

The biggest appeal of Borneo as a PADI Instructor Development Course IDC destination has to be the natural treasures to be found here.

A big eco-tourism destination, Borneo has a wealth of interesting and unique animal life that is relatively abundant and easily accessible.

From the iconic orang utan indigenous to this island, to schools of hammerheads found at Layang Layang Atoll, to pygmy elephants which still roam freely in ever shrinking pockets of Borneo rainforests, it is a wildlife destination no doubt!

A PADI IDC Instructor Development Course in Borneo, or even one of our professional SCUBA diving internships, will give candidates the opportunity to experience not just diving, but a diving destination.

Dotted around and nearby Borneo are the islands that make Sabah famous, such as Sipadan, Layang Layang, Mabul, Kapalai, Mantanani, Pom Pom and Pulau Tiga – Survivor Island.

On the Indonesian-side, Sulawesi is the biggest of Indonesia’s Sunda Islands, reachable through a bit of an adventurous journey via ferry, with notable SCUBA diving destinations.
