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

We did our PADI Open Water course here. It was a great experience doing it at Reef Seen, our instructor, Adrian, was thorough, patient and very friendly. They are based right on the beach and the house reef is only a short swim from the shore so a great place to learn (much more interesting than looking at the bottom... More

Everything here is seriously fantastic. They are working on so many projects with the local community in coral reef and sea turtle conservation, as well as balinese traditional dance. The diving is fantastic. We were coming from a not so great experience on our first time diving, and Amanda was so helpful and made us feel much more at ease.... More

What a great way to start the day, with a heartfelt smile reading your encouraging words here. Not everyone has the foresight to see that prevention is better than cure and that the efforts Chris and the team at Reef Seen put in are not only for the benefit our own guests, but for everyone in the Pemuteran area to...

Dives in bay were great but island dives spectacular & more mature reef fish. Nice relaxed pace diving on technicolor reefs. Temple dive only interesting for electric clams & if... More
