Camps International adventurers’ are very lucky to enjoy our spacious PADI Dive Centre to study SCUBA skills to qualify as PADI Open Water Divers!
Our Gaya Island beach house in Kota Kinabalu, is a perfect location for groups of students to spend an adventure during their schools’ summer holidays. There’s a variety of fun island activities, of which many have never been experienced by our young adventurers’ and they not only have the chance to do so, but also to gain a lifetime dive certification!
For our dive operations to maintain its high standards in scuba diving training, safety of our participants is made the highest priority throughout all adventure activities – and this gives them the best chance to learn as much as possible about Sabah!

At Downbelow Marine and Wildlife Adventures, our team of PADI Instructors couldn’t maintain its reputation for effective and SAFE diver training for large groups, without splitting them into smaller groups!
Schools and universities from all over the world visit our PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre facilities to learn more about Sabah, the ‘Land Below the Wind’. Camps International UK are by far our largest groups, and to manage their diver safety our operations ensure every precaution is taken. Because there are so many participants within the groups, during their PADI Open Water Diver course training, they’re split into smaller groups with a maximum of 4 students to 1 PADI Instructor. This ratio is half that of PADI Standards to conduct the course, but through years of experience as professional divers in the Kota Kinabalu TARP area, our conservative ratio has proved very successful. Students receive more time to master their dive skills, which makes them divers with better judgment of diver safety.

All young adventurers’ have differing interests, just as adults do, and our personalised program provides our island campers with a unique education on the natural biodiversity to be found in Borneo.
The first group, endearingly named ‘Pisang’ (‘banana’ in Malay), have arrived at our premier PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre for a few nights of camping to explore the adventure activities available, such as kayaking, snorkelling and jungle trekking. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, for many of our adventurers’, is to gain the PADI Open Water Diver qualification under the supervision of our team of PADI Instructors too!
Their safety during their experience with our operations is of our highest priority, not only because they are our clients, but because they are also of a young age (15-17 years), so their judgment is not as developed as that of an adult. It is the duty of our PADI professionals to ensure their diver training and other island activities are conducted with the highest standard of safety regulations.
Professional scuba diving internship candidates are encouraged by our Go PRO team to assist as much as possible, in an effort to heighten their awareness of safety, and build their confidence as a leader!
