Welcome to Iboih Dive Centre (IDC), Iboih, Pulau Weh, Aceh owned and operated by Bukhari and his brother Iswar. The full team includes PADI Divemasters Arun, Mur, Ampon and boat captains Fikri and Agi. IDC is the only dive centre in Pulau Weh that all dive guides are trained and certified PADI Divemasters.
Bukhari is a pioneer and founder of recreational scuba diving in Pulau Weh, Sumatra which is internationally renowned for its world class scuba diving. Back in the 1980’s Bukhari, along with Mr Dodent (Rubiah Tirta Divers), explored and surveyed the local area to establish the dive sites that are still being used to this day by all recreational divers visiting this beautiful marine park.
IDC is one of the newest dive centres in Pulau Weh with high quality brand new Scubapro diving equipment, cylinders and Bauer compressor. Although with more than a combined 20 years of operational and active diving experience, Iboih Dive Centre is one of the most experienced by far. All divers and students can be certain of international standards and comfort levels.
Come and join Bukhari, Iswar and the IDC team as they open up the wonders of Weh discovering new dive sites and sharing the underwater delights of old favourites. It would be difficult to find anyone who knows these waters as well as this team of local Acehenese PADI Divemasters.
Every Friday water activities are suspended across the whole of Pulau Weh until 2pm. This is a cultural tradition in order to give thanks and respect to the ocean for providing our communities with a source for livelihood.
