Artistic Diving Resort

A Diving Resort

Artistic Diving Resort is located at the beach front of Punta Ballo, Sipalay City Philippines. It was founded in 1998 as the first dive operation in the entire region and is owned by the Swiss National and Diving Instructor Arthur Mueller MSDT #97630 and his Filipino wife Evalyn Mueller (Rescue Diver). In the meantime, we’ve discovered more than 43 diving sites which are all ready for you to explore. Together with our friendly staff, we’re continuously expanding our clean resort. Today, we offer now 16 nice air-con bungalows all at the very beach front. The City of Sipalay established a new concrete road to our facilities. It is now a very pleasant access to our Beach Resort. A new restaurant and modern kitchen offers delicious local and international cuisines, even a la carte. Now, we also offer an excellent Mongolian Barbecue Buffet for you. Our nice swimming pool invites you for any kind of pleasure and is a great start to learn diving. Apart from diving, snorkeling, eating and relaxing, you can also try beach volleyball, table tennis, or billiards.

Sipadan Scuba – PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Dive Centre

Sipadan Scuba is the first and only PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Center in Semporna, Sabah, Malaysia and the first National Geographic Dive Center in Borneo. In 2008 we have been declared Winner of 3 PADI awards that include the “PADI Top Achievement 2008 Award” and on an individual basis the “PADI Go Pro Challenge 2008”. Sipadan Scuba is the pioneer of diving at the islands of the Semporna Marine Park and the local leader in professional diving education since 1998.

Amazing Dive

5 Star PADI IDC

“Amazing Dive has an accident-free 13 year history of PADI Dive Operations in Singapore.  Amazing Dive is one of the few 5-Star Dive Centres in Singapore, and we’re happy to serve customers from all around the world!

Popular among tourists, especially backpackers,  local varsity students and adults young at heart, Amazing Dive merges the experience, professionalism and stringent safety standards enforced by our senior instructor-mentors, with the vibrant energy  of the Amazin’ crew.

Based smack in the middle of tourist Chinatown and near the famous Smith Street (food street) in Singapore, Amazing Dive has long shifted its focus from being a commercialised diving business into the most experience-orientated, chill-out/hang out spot Dive centre ever conceivable. There’s a reason we’re the only dive centre in Singapore with a zero accident history in all 13 years of operations.

Training Philosophy and Standards

Simple. Accessible. For Everyone.

At Amazing, the basic Open Water Dive Course students graduate with high confidence levels to take Advanced Courses and beyond- with most starting from absolute scratch. With an average theory session grade of 89.4%, participate in a top-standard, discussion-centric, vibrant learning atmosphere in the cosy environment of the Classroom. On top of minimal requirements, our PADI Open Water Dive Course encompasses a preview of Advanced Course segments such as Peak Performance Buoyancy, Boat Diving (incl. backroll entry), Fish I.D., Drift Diving and Wreck Diving, incorporated as part of the training. Come prepared- and we’re prepared to give you our very best.

Split into 3 simple steps, the entry level course takes you from zero to a personal license to dive worldwide. See our website for more details about our PADI Open Water Diver Course in Singapore. Unsure? Simply add us on FaceBook, and take a chat with one of our latest students to hear about the way we conduct the most popular basic Scuba Diving Certification in Singapore.

Retail

Prudent, Honest Pricings, Filtered Selections

Nothing here is sold on basis of highest profit margin, and nothing here is priced to rip you off.
Every piece of equipment on sale has been used and tried by our people; and over many years, we’ve identified and filtered out equipment you’d regret buying, to leave a good selection for your perusal.
Balancing price and features isn’t easy, and our crew’s here to help you make a truly informed choice. It doesn’t matter if you’re new, or a seasoned pro. If it’s worth putting on display, we probably have it.

We’re so dedicated about the way we run our retail that we have a dedicated retail agent to secure distributorships for the stuff. Translated: Great prices, original equipment (no fakes or cheap copies here), and intimate knowledge of our equipment.

In fact, if you purchase certain equipment that require additional training and guidance to help you unleash their full features, we’ll provide a complimentary pool training session so you can get it right; notably, Halcyon BCD + Jetfins combination.

Ecology
Act.

A strong supporter of Project AWARE, Amazing operates according to its golden rules: an ecofriendly operation, ecological messages in our education, awareness from the ground up.

Amazing Dive is probably the only dive operator featuring and supporting varsity-student led projects changing the Asian ecological landscape, step by step. In 2010, the Asia Expedition: Boardwalk featuring students from the Singapore Management University, National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore Institute of Management, University of New York (Stern), Cambridge, Harvard and University of Pennsylvania team up to ignite change in the way Asian dive operators and resorts engage their customers in ecological awareness, on the aggregate scale. A bold, fascinating and innovative project, this partnership combines the technical resources of a dive centre with the academic resources of the new, educated generation.

Amazing Dive’s efforts are also recognised and endorsed by Dasmond Koh, a Mediacorp Artiste. An avid diver, active in the diving scene, Dasmond is our local anti-sharkfin ambassador. “Today on, Sharks stay off the menu.”

Culture

Viva la Scuba!

The new shop at Chinatown is entirely pieced together by the crew and customers, reflecting their hopes, dreams and experiences in Scuba Diving- from wooden flooring to designing and sewing together the bean bags in the classroom, to the diving murals on the wall, furnishings, painting, etc. Equipment recommendations and ratings used by staff and crew are scrawled in chalk on the retail walls. A surround sound and projector system (customised and put together by an enthusiastic diver in the A/V industry) supports the occasional gathering, barbeques at the balcony, eco-movie screenings etc.

Did we mention that we’re probably the only dive centre in the world who brews our own beer? Dive Themed beers are designed and brewed by our crew members, not for sale but for free tastings and the occasional party. Check out our nitrogen-charged Narcosis Amber Ale, the annual Christmas 100rads Cherry Ale, the tropical, fragrant 51 Scuba Bright Ale or the Amazing Dive Straits Stout with traditional Pandan and Gula Melaka.

So what’s the whole thing about Amazing Dive then?

Everything. Put together the participative creative energy of crew, customers, and even random passers by and you’ve got the idea of Amazing Scuba – built by divers, for divers, young at heart, vibrant, exciting, safe, and an unforgettable experience. Dive with us, and we want to see you again lingering about the shop having a beer, a good diving book from the shelf=) Even better, join us as crew!

Viva la Scuba!”
