Learn To Dive At Uepi
Uepi was the original Sports Diving facility in the Solomon Islands. In 1993, Uepi Island Resort trained the first two Solomon Islands Dive Instructors, Dick Hotton & Wilson Tela. After some intensive training in January 2012, we were excited to qualify a further five local dive instructors; Joe Poloso, Robert Kohese, Raba Hotton, Aeram Hotton and John Hotton, who along with Resort Managers Jill and Grant Kelly are ready to turn you into the SCUBA Diver you have always wanted to be. We teach the internationally recognised Scuba Schools International ("SSI") courses up to Dive Controller (Dive Master) level.
You can now study your academic lessons before you come to Uepi Island Resort using the SSI Home Study Program or even more conveniently on-line. This means you can get all your dive knowledge at home in your own time, before you come to Uepi Island Resort. Once at Uepi, our Instructors will teach you the practical skills and then you will be diving amongst the corals and fish.
Learning to dive in the comfort of warm clear waters, with small numbers of students, with patient instructors whose aim is to make you so comfortable on SCUBA that diving will become 'your sport' is surely the best way to learn.
On the other hand if you have time to learn to dive before coming to Uepi you can spend your time diving rather than learning.
