Scuba Diving With Kasai Village

Why Us?

Our philosophy here at Kasai Village is that we respect the diving experience of our guests and allow a lot more diving freedom, compared to other dive operations. Every morning we operate two consecutive guided boat dives and in the afternoon there is a third one. Briefings include: a dive site overview, a proposed dive profile, typical animal encounters and resident special critters. Experienced divers, if they wish, can dive independently in their buddy teams without following their dive guide (subject to approval from the Dive Operator Manager). Boat dives are limited to 60 Minutes, but independent divers can choose to dive our house reef with a buddy without a time limit. When diving in groups we tend to keep the groups small, with a ratio of four divers per dive guide.
