Exploring Bali's Dive

Indonesia’s Bali is a tropical paradise that offers an exceptional diving experience for enthusiasts worldwide. With its knowledgeable local guides and diverse marine life, Bali has become a popular destination for divers. In this article, we will explore seven reasons why Bali is the perfect destination for diving.

Knowledgeable Local Guides

One of the greatest advantages of diving in Bali is the expertise of the local divemasters and instructors. Unlike other places where diving instructors may be temporary or seasonal, Bali boasts a community of local experts who possess an in-depth understanding of the dive sites. Their extensive knowledge of the territory ensures a safe and enriching diving experience.

Stunning Dive Sites: Bali is home to a wide range of breathtaking dive sites that cater to divers of all levels. From vibrant coral reefs to underwater volcanic formations, the island offers diverse underwater landscapes. Popular dive sites include Nusa Penida, Tulamben, Amed, and Menjangan Island, each with its unique characteristics and marine life.

Rich Marine Biodiversity

Diving in Bali allows you to explore an abundance of marine biodiversity. The warm waters surrounding the island are teeming with colorful coral reefs and an array of marine species. Divers can encounter majestic manta rays, playful dolphins, gentle sea turtles, and an impressive variety of tropical fish. Bali’s underwater world is a haven for underwater photographers and marine enthusiasts.

Mola-Mola (Sunfish) Encounters: Bali is renowned for its incredible Mola-Mola encounters, also known as sunfish. These elusive creatures, with their unique appearance and immense size, attract divers from all over the world. Nusa Penida and nearby dive sites offer the opportunity to witness these awe-inspiring creatures during the right season, adding an extra element of excitement to your diving experience.

Excellent Visibility

Clear visibility is essential for an enjoyable diving experience, and Bali delivers on this front. The island’s waters often boast excellent visibility, providing divers with crystal-clear views of the underwater world. With visibility often exceeding 30 meters, divers can fully appreciate the vibrant marine life and stunning underwater landscapes.

Suitable for All Skill Levels

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced diver, Bali offers dive sites suitable for all skill levels. Novice divers can take part in introductory dives or complete their Open Water certification in calm and shallow waters. Advanced divers can explore challenging drift dives and deep-sea walls. Bali’s versatility makes it an ideal destination for divers of all abilities.

Vibrant Culture and Natural Beauty

Beyond the underwater wonders, Bali is renowned for its vibrant culture and stunning natural beauty. Divers can immerse themselves in the island’s unique traditions, visit ancient temples, and experience its warm hospitality. From lush rice terraces to picturesque beaches, Bali offers a captivating setting both on and off the diving sites.


Bali’s reputation as a premier diving destination is well-deserved.

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!!
