This course is not intended for those seeking luxury or pampering. Living in Labuan Bajo is a rich, rewarding experience. You will be immersed in the culture of this part of Indonesia from dawn till dusk. Where we live is charming to some and not so appealing to others. It is not a rich town and very few extra amenities are to be found outside the hotels. Each candidate for our course MUST be prepared to live and enjoy third world living. Hot showers, air-conditioning and wifi in rooms are the exception, not the rule. Schedules and plans are all very fluid here…you can not expect everything to function like it does in the west, or even in places like Thailand, Mexico or Egypt. On the other hand – the scenery is pristine, the people are not jaded and the adventures here are rewarding and create memories to last a lifetime. Not to mention the diving is so very, very good. We have encountered everything from Dugongs to huge schools of rays, dozens of Mantas, Sharks of every description, Humpback whales and more. This is before large scale tourism has occurred, this is before package holiday tourists come in big numbers and before the fast food chains open.
