Bali Diving Testimonial from Chui Shuan Wong

It was the end of a three-day, ten-dive adventure with Bali Diving, and for one group member, it had been a challenging and unforgettable experience. My husband and I, along with two other friends, had set out to explore the beautiful waters around Padang Bai and Nusa Penida, but it quickly became apparent that this would not be easy. Despite our challenges, we were always reminded to be aware of our surroundings and trust our instincts, which helped us complete the dive adventure. The dive master even presented us with a certificate of completion, and we were grateful for the experience and the lessons we learned. We were so happy and excited to return to Bali to explore the ocean again.

The current was so strong that it was a battle against the elements. We fought against the tide, trying to reach the ocean’s depths. But as we dove deeper, the beauty of the marine life took our breath away. We were in awe of the vibrant coral reefs and the diverse marine life. It was truly a spectacle to behold.

But it wasn’t all smooth sailing. Along the way, we faced various challenges, including motion sickness and sinus problems. But the kindness and generosity of the staff at Bali Diving made the experience truly memorable. On the first day, I was hit hard by motion sickness and threw up multiple times, but our dive master, Ketut, and driver, Wayan, were incredibly kind and went above and beyond to help me. They bought me herbal oil and local remedies to help with my motion sickness. Wayan even offered to drive one of my friends around to several pharmacies looking for a nasal spray to help with his sinus problem.

Throughout the dives, Ketut made sure to take extra care of me, helping me ensure all my equipment was properly geared up, checking in on me during the dives, and even staying close by when we descended and surfaced to help me avoid fighting the current which made my motion sickness worse. He went above and beyond to make me feel as comfortable as possible.

It was not the luxurious equipment or beautiful dive centers that made the experience unforgettable; it was the people. The staff of Bali Diving was exceptional and made the journey one that I will never forget. The challenges we faced only added to the adventure’s beauty and excitement, and the staff’s kindness and generosity made it truly unforgettable. I highly recommend diving with Bali Diving, and I look forward to taking advanced courses with Ketut in the future. It was a journey filled with challenges, beauty, and, most importantly, the goodness and generosity of the people we met along the way.

This dive was the experience of a lifetime! Sensational coral, colourful fishes everywhere and a shipwreck to explore. Ketut my dive master was exceptional and helped me so much. Bail Diving went above and beyond. Tulumben is such a cool place to be. I highly recommend this as a ‘Must Do’ dive.

Had a really great first diving experience. Chris is the BEST! Never left my side, always made sure that I’m fine and was so patient and considerate. I felt comfortable and safe all the time. My boyfriend didn’t feel good at the beginning. Chris tried to make him feel better and brought him back to the shore with me as he wanted to quit. Our driver Putu was also super kind and funny. Would definitely recommend Bali Diving to everyone. Especially for first time divers like me. Thank you!!

Amazing experience, staff are very friendly and helpful, they pointed out different locations and beaches along the way and answered any questions we had.I loved how small the group was, it didn’t feel like a big tourist thing, it felt intimate. The Snorkel instructor pointed out lots of turtles and other sea life.We were lucky enough to see 4 Manta Rays. Best experience of my life!It is a big day, so pack extra snacks for yourself, extra warm clothes and extra sunscreen.We will defiantly be doing this again.

The couches are super friendly and helpful. Very convenient for pick up and drop off service. You should all try and ask them for renting a GoPro to record this amazing experience. Will sure to go back.

These are the best people ever. Every single person who works here is not only kind but knowledgeable and helpful beyond belief. I couldn’t be happier with my first week in Bali and it is all thanks to Bali diving. I got my open water and advanced in the time I asked for, and made many friends in the process - I cannot say enough about how lovely the entire crew is. If you are considering which dive shop to do, go here, they will take the best care of you. I only wish I could dive with them for longer!! Also their cat is cute, bonus.

Went diving with my wife with this dive school. We went to Nusa Pelida to Manta Point, and two points up north.Our guide, Agus, was extremely professional and thoughtful of us and took good care guiding my partner in these waters as currents can be very strong. Honestly, this was among the best diving I've done in my life.We saw manta rays, giant turtles, and a ton of fish. We even had to hold on to rocks as the current got so strong that we were waving like flags hanging onto these rocks.At all times we felt safe as Agus was extremely knowledgeable of these waters and had a good eye on us.Lunch on the boat was simple and wonderful.Thank you so much guys for giving us this wonderful diving experience. Next time I'm in Bali, i'll be sure to visit you again.

Amazing!I had my diving course and did my first dive with Bali Diving. At first, I learned it in the swimming pool, then to Padang Bai, and Tulamben (USAT Liberty Shipwreck). And it's so much fun!As someone with zero diving experience, the explanation from the dive instructor, Bli Ketut Latra, was very clear and easy to understand. Whenever I felt nervous, he could calm me down and made me excited to master the diving skills. Bli Ketut was also fun to talk with during the trip. He is the best!The staff from Bali Diving are also very friendly and helpful. They have diving masks for people with glasses (my eyes are -4). And at that time I was able to use it at no extra cost! However, there was additional cost for the diving documentation.During the diving course, everything had been prepared: transportation, diving equipment, lunch. I just needed to bring a towel and sunscreen.Anyway, I highly recommend Bali Diving for anyone who wants to learn or try diving.Thank you, Bali Diving!

Very friendly staff and professional team. I had not dived for 22 years and was well looked after by Ketut on staff during two dives on the USAT Liberty Wreck.. I had a fantastic experience and will be back to dive with this centre again. The equipment was suitable and it was great to be back under water again! Thank you and Mkasih banyak. Mantul!!
