Second visit, and still they keep up the exellent quality that made me love the place. In between tutoring diving students, Amanda and Adrian find time to make sure that all the divers are taken care of. The diving in itself are very good in the area, ranging from trips to Menjangan, muck diving with lots of macro stuff, and... More

We traveled to Bali for our honeymoon, and received PADI certification as a wedding gift. We researched where to take our new found dive skills, and were drawn to Reef Seen because of their access to amazing marine sights, and their connections to the community. Reef Seen is the home of Proyek Penyu, a turtle hatchery and conservatory for local... More

Reefseen is a charming seaside resort and diving school. Adrian and Amanda are two of the most dedicated and passionate teachers that one could have. I was a first time diver with my boyfriend and Adrian was our amazing teacher! He made sure we were always comfortable and understood everything. I was not a quick learner but he was patient... More

During our stay in Pemuteran we came across Reef Seen and its turtle project. For just a small donation/entrance fee you can get a little tour around tanks with the baby turtles. At 16:30 you can also help feeding them. Besides the fact that a visit is fun for you, your donating helps supporting this project. Just have a look... More

Went out to Menjangan Island on a boat with about 10 snorkelers and had an incredible time. They supplied water, towels and lunch (though a big hunk of chicken was thrown in with my "vegetarian" mie goreng and the noodles tasted more like 2minute/pot noodles than the real thing). There were two guides with us, and they mostly kept an... More

Thank you to Amanda, Adrian, Chris and all the other friendly staff and dive guides for a most enjoyable 3 day stay at Reef Seen Pemuteran. I especially enjoyed the day-trip diving around to Mengangan Island mangrove and coral garden areas. The quality of the coral, the numbers and diversity of the fish in these locations especially was very pleasing... More

I have dived with Reef Seen several times in the last 20 years and the general atmosphere has more or less remained unchanged. Of course changes have taken place and Pemuteran is much more developed but Chris Brown and his staff have been able to keep a relaxing but still very professional atmosphere. This year and also last year I... More

What a find! I'll start by saying I'm an extremely nervous and very new diver. But within 20 minutes of talking to the brilliant and very lovely Adrian and Amanda I felt very at ease and relaxed about my upcoming dive. They are extremely professional, really taking the time to talk to you about your previous experience, asking what my... More
