About us

Our Story

Our journey into scuba diving started in year 2000, after being actively involved in outdoors from trekking, camping, rock-climbing, white water rafting, Raleigh International, Malaysian Nature Society and Boy Scouts. It started with Ministry of Youth, program called Rakan Muda, which brought our founder to pickup an additional outdoor sport. From there, it was no turning back with building beautiful friendship with scuba divers, and exploring the undersea world together.

In 2008, after being certified as PADI Instructor, our founder started training scuba divers in Kuala Lumpur. We have now grown to a team of experienced and passionate dive leaders, nurturing young people to appreciate the underwater world. Being experienced in outdoor leadership and management, our team always focus on the importance of safety, growth and learning, while protecting our precious Mother Earth for our future generations.
