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

My husband and I came to Permuteran to go to Menjangan like many other snorkelers and divers. We went snorkeling on the island on day 1 which was amazing, we did not see a single dead coral. the randomly found company we went with initially with did not seam serious about diving so we were not confident going out with...

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...

Rooms & breakfast not great - but diving was excellent. Botok was an outstanding leader - found many tiny nudibranch & other strange critters. Equipment in good shape. Briefings comprehensive. 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

I admired Chris' (the owner) conservation work at the local dive sites at pemuteran, Amanda's brilliant pre dive briefing, and Wayan's underwater guidance. The 3 of them made a complimentary team, most suitable for hosting avid divers. This isn't a five star resort, but if you're in for the diving (with basic accommodation), you are paying good money to reef... More

We did there our padi open water diving course. While prices seemed to be a little bit high, we had the impression that we got what we paid for. The instructors were excellent and tried their best to accommodate our busy schedule. We definitely got the much needed diving confidence and surely will return back to them if such opportunity...

The ticket "cost" is actually more like a donation to help fund their turtle release project. We were able to see 1 month old sea turtles swimming happily in their little pools as well as pet the project mascot, Buddy, a 10 year old turtle. They have a large sand pit that currently houses roughly 350 eggs that will hatch... More

I have dived with Reef Seen four times, and I would love to do it again. The staff is very knowledgeable, helpful and nice and I have always felt very safe while diving with Reef Seen. Some great diving spots in the Pemuteran bay area as well as at Pulau Menjangan! Highly recommended.
