Scuba Junkie Penida Dive Resort is the latest adventure by the Scuba Junkie dive team that has been based in SE Asia for over 14 years.
Started in Sabah, Malaysia where the first Scuba Junkie dive shop and resort is still based on Mabul Island, close to the famous Sipadan Island, and diving some of the best reefs Malaysia and indeed the world has to offer, Scuba Junkie has developed into a well known and well respected dive centre and Eco resort developer.
The six founders of Scuba Junkie Penida each have over 10 years of experience working throughout SE Asias dive industry, over 25,000 dives combined and are trained in such disciplines as technical diving, reef ecology training and the creation of marine protected areas, marine biology and marine sciences, sea turtle hatchery management, 5* IDC centers, photography and much more. They have also been guest speakers in many Dive expos in Malaysia, Singapore and Australia on Marine conservation specifically their work with Sharks, Rays and Marine Turtles and on Marine Parks and have also featured in many publications on the same.
Together they are an award winning dive centre both for their diver training and safety as well as their conservation work receiving numerous awards in both of these areas, such as the Wild Asia Award for the Protection of Wild Species as well as PADI training and other diving awards. They have also featured in many documentaries for the above on channels such as National Geographic and the Discovery Channel.
