Quality Dive Operations

Two Fish Divers is owned and run by Tina and Nigel, an English couple who are BSAC & PADI instructors. They have been living and diving in Indonesia since 1999, and they have a very particular philosophy that makes Two Fish Divers very different from any other dive center in the area, and perhaps elsewhere in the world.

“Our philosophy is to provide a quality diving holiday, which we would be happy go on with our own friends & family.”

Our Philosophy Commitment to Quality, Community, Conservation and Courses

  • First-class Dive Service

    All our dive centers have been awarded the status of a 5 Star Dive Operation by PADI. This is a step-up from being just a PADI Dive Center, but what does this really mean?

    All PADI 5 Star Center’s are committed to provide services such as: i) to have an above average safety record for diving, ii) to have compressors regularly tested for air quality, and iii) to have oxygen and first aid on board every dive boat.

    However we believe that a 5-Star dive service includes a lot more such as small dive groups, long dive times, expert instructors, etc. You can see the list in the section “First Class Dive Service” on this page, and it is included on every dive page!

  • Quality Statement

    We have gone further and have put our dive service into the Two Fish Quality Statement – this is our promise that we send out to all to our guests!!

  • Excellent staff from the local community

    We think that we should employ local people, and at least 75% of our staff is taken from the local community at each of our locations

  • Community involvement

    We regularly make donations to the local villages for community projects in all the areas that we operate. We are also committed to training at least 2 new dive guides every year, and to developing our dive guides as PADI Divemasters

  • Conservation involvement

    We are active members of the conservation society in each location, through which we help organise initiatives on reef conservation. Other activities include helping with manta research in Nusa Penida/ Lembongan, and regular beach & marine debris cleanups at all our dive centers. Our conservation work has been recognized by Project Aware when they made us a feature member on their website.

  • Commitment to top quality dive courses

    • We have been in Indonesia for more than 15 years, teaching more than 3,000 people to scuba dive.
    • We have small class sizes of max 4 students, often with only 1 or 2 students.
    • We have full-time, experienced instructors who follow all the PADI guidelines for providing a safe course to the highest quality possible. We also have contacts with experienced Indonesian instructors who teach according to our principles, and we call upon them for teaching when needed.
    • Safety is our first concern, and our dive equipment is fully maintained.
    • We include dive insurance and a dive computer as standard in your course, unlike other centres.
    • We are a PADI 5 Star center which means that we are committed to offering quality dive courses.


First-class Dive Service

Our Two Fish dive service includes:
  • Small groups of no more than four guests per dive guide
  • Dive groups are organised according to air consumption and dive experience
  • Expert dive guides who have done thousands of dives, and are PADI Rescue Diver trained
  • Oxygen and first aid on every dive boat
  • English speaking friendly crew and dive guides
  • Long dives – we just ask you to surface after 75mins or on 40bar
  • All our dive guides are trained to assist photographers, spot amazing critters and help carry accessories
  • Wash and store service – all dive gear is loaded onto boats in the morning, and removed and washed after your diving, so all you need to do is DIVE
  • Commitment to Quality Courses by having full-time instructors at each dive center who teach according to our principles, and who follow the PADI guidelines for providing a safe courses.

The Story of Two Fish Divers

How did Two Fish Divers start?

Both Tina & Nigel took up diving in the early-1990’s in the UK as a hobby, and they were on a round-the-world trip when they first visited Bunaken Island in 1998. They loved the diving so much that they decided to give up their 9-to-5 jobs in London and stay on Bunaken Island to open up their own dive centre. Why did they decide to stay and make a life on a tropical island? They just love diving!

Two Fish Divers Timeline

Two Fish Divers started operations in 2001 on Bunaken Island with one dive guide and one dive boat. Over the last 20 years it has been built up steadily so that Two Fish Divers now consists of PADI 5 Star dive centers in 7 beautiful tropical island paradises across Indonesia, offering the full range of services including Top-Quality Diving Service, Safe Diving Courses, and Professional Divemaster & Instructor Internships. Each operation caters for about 20 divers with five or six dive-guides, three dive-boats, western/european manager and an experienced dive instructor.
