Geko: a safety-conscious dive operator in Bali since 1997
Over the last few years, new dive operators on Bali are mushrooming. With so many new entrants on the market, it can be hard for divers to make an educated choice. Safety should be one of the first aspects to look at when choosing a Bali dive centre. Here are questions you can ask to gauge a Bali dive centre's seriousness and safety.
Are dive boats self-operated or leased for the day? Does the dive centre bring oxygen on every trip? Are the guides and instructors certified and renewed? Is the boat crew First Aid trained? Does the Bali dive centre fill its own tanks? Is the compressor filtration changed as per manufacturer's recommendations? Is the rental equipment recent and well maintained? Are there Emergency Action Plans for each site?
