Freelance Dive Instructor and Dive Guide in Bali, Indonesia


Rental equipment

I provide APEKS regulators and weight-integrated SEAQUEST BCDs (ProQD or Latitude) and each regulator is either equipped with a SUUNTO console computer (Cobra or Vyper) or a wrist computer can be provided (Suunto Gekko or similar). All rental gear is subject to regular maintenance and renewal and gets thoroughly rinsed in fresh water after every day diving. Mouthpieces and booties get disinfected after every rental.

You can select your rental wetsuit from an inventory of 3mm shorties in the most common sizes and even some long suits. In the unlikely event that your size would not be available, I have some very flexible lycra shirts, you might find them quite sufficient for most dive sites.
Fins, masks and snorkels are available in different sizes, though I recommend bringing your own mask if you already have one. Most divers just find it easier to clear a flooded mask which they are familiar with.

For PADI dive courses rental gear is included in the course price, for guided dives and safaris please see my gear rental price list here (at the bottom of the page).

Tanks and weights

are of course provided and I am using plastic-coated weights only, so no reason to bring yours.

Emergency Oxygen

An own supply of oxygen will always be available when diving the more remote dive sites or planning deeper dives, even if there is an on-site dive center which should have some too or if the boat we use has one on board.

Surface Marker Buoy (SMB)

At least every buddy pair should have one. I carry one on every dive and have a few spares, but you are welcome to bring your own too (see mask).

Guests’ dive gear

Can be stored at my place while diving with me and will be rinsed and dried after every day diving, same like the rental gear.

Hint: if you bring your own fins, make sure they are ‘open heel’ style (with fin straps, to be used with booties)
Hint: If you bring your own regulator, bear in mind that here in Asia we are using INT tank valves only. I have a few DIN-to-INT adapters on stock, but it is always a good idea to add one to your dive luggage. Also bringing own O-rings on your dive travels only makes sense when you bring both – DIN and INT. Of course I always have spares anyway.

Maintenance and spare parts

In case of any problem with your own gear, I will show you to a well-assorted retail shop which carries most brands, e.g. APEKS, AQUALUNG, SEAQUEST, SEA&SEA, SUUNTO etc.
Should you be travelling with other gear like SeacSub, Cressi, Mares, etc. bringing a service kit can make sense for a longer stay. On the other hand, in case of a substantial problem which cannot be remedied, I would supply you with rental gear free of charge while you are diving with me.
