About Scuba Nation

Som Swa Kum - Welcome!

All our staff are delighted to welcome you to Cambodia and Scuba Nation. Scuba Nation was established in 2002 by Vicky Leah and Gerard Leenen and is the first PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Centre in Cambodia, with award-winning, in-house Course Director Gerard Leenen, the highest qualified Instructor in Cambodia. In 2019 Vicky & Gerard left the company to pursue other things but Gerard stays on in his capacity as Course Director. We are one of very few dive operations in the whole of S-E Asia to receive the Green Star Award and ECO Dive Operator accreditation from PROJECT AWARE for our efforts to conserve the marine environment. Scuba Nation was also awarded PADI Diver Acquisition and Outstanding Contribution to the Dive Industry awards in 2013, 2014 and 2017, 2018 and 2019. In 2017 our PADI Course Director go the Silver status awarded by PADI.

Working together with our multi-national PADI-educated team, our goal is to provide a bespoke and first class service catering for the individual needs of our clients. Whether you want to learn to dive, further your diving education, dive for fun, or even take an Instructor Development Course, we can provide the right dive package for you at an affordable price. We go out of our way to cater for the needs of families and non-divers too, so they are included in the experience.

Diving is often seen as a macho sport and whilst this may have been historically true, more and more women are taking up the sport. There are so many ways to dive. Our mixed team of instructors allows us to understand and cater for the needs and concerns of all divers.

At Scuba Nation we pride ourselves on giving a friendly, direct and professional service. There are no hidden extras. The safety of our clients is paramount. Having fun is the inevitable by-product!

Scuba Nation are dealers for Scubapro and Saekodive diving equipment. 

Cambodia has many wonderful places to discover and explore. At Scuba Nation we hope that our service will not only surpass your expectations but that your diving adventure with us will be amongst your most enjoyable and memorable experiences from the “the Kingdom of Wonder”.
