At Downbelow we take all diver training very seriously and when it comes to professional courses we have a dedicated team of highly qualified instructors & course directors who teach, guide and offer advice to all candidates. Based on the understanding that every professional level candidate will need to find employment within the dive industry we prepare and train each individual to excel in the scuba diving workplace.
We operate TWO PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centres in the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park. The first known as the Beach House is located on Gaya Island where “Rainforest meets the Reef” located just 10 mins boat ride from the City of Kota Kinabalu (KK). We are the only operator here – away from the crowds. Our second dive centre is located on Manukan Island, 10 minutes speedboat ride from KK city and within the resort. The advantage to you as the GoPro candidate is that you will get to experience two very different dive centres during your program which is beneficial to your training & career in the industry.
Our training facilities at the PADI 5 Star IDC Centres and the head office at KK Times Square on the mainland, are ideally suited to all PADI Courses. It provides year round access to our confined water area directly in front of our dive centre and open water dive sites a giant stride from our jetty or minutes away by speedboat. All our PADI professional courses can be taken as a stand alone course or, for a longer period of time, through Go PRO internships.
