Learning to dive in Bali

There is more to Bali than just a cultural experience. The underwater world has something very special to offer and is perfect for beginners as well as certified divers. Great diving areas and above all lots of fish and a filigree life can be expected. This is a year-round dive destination with great reefs, nudibranchs, turtles, manta rays on Nusa Penida and moonfish. You are welcome to explore this fascinating underwater world by joining us. We have experienced instructors ready to train you individually.

At our locations in Bali you could take a trial course to see what awaits you. On the other hand, you can also choose a beginner diving course. Here we mainly train according to the guidelines of SSI (Scuba Schools International) or i.a.c. (International Aquanautic Club). You could also take a PADI Open Water Diver course with us. Whichever course you choose, you’ll end up with an internationally recognized certificate that welcomes you to any dive center worldwide.
