pool for training

Training facilities

Everything at Blue Season Bali has been designed so that your PADI Instructor training is made easy! Our pool can accomodate several dive classes at the same time and is right next to our classroom. Nothing is easier than to step out of our big air-conditioned classroom after using our library or maybe studying your IDC theory, and then just jump in the pool for your IDC skills presentation.

Located right in the heart of Sanur, after a day of studying it is easy to walk down to the beach to enjoy a cold beer and a sunset, or to wonder around the shops to maybe treat yourself! Find out more about the lifestyle of Bali and what to expect here in our EXPERIENCE section
