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.

I only spent 3 days in Pemuteran but went everyday to see the turtles. They really take good care of them, the place is clean and the staff very nice, although I'm not sure they had in depth knowledge of the turtles. They release many turtles but need help from visitors to support the project and be able to buy... More

After concluding our second live aboard trip to Raja Ampat, we wanted some time to relax in Bali, work on our tans, and do some slightly more relaxed diving. We picked Reef Seen in Pemurteran for two reasons: they are wonderful stewards of the coral environment and Pemuteran is just enough off the Bali beaten path so it reminds us... More

It is uplifting for the staff and management to read your review of our resort and dive centre. Our reputation has been built up over many years of hard work but we are well aware that it is a continuous process to maintain. With the owner's "doing it right" attitude and the staff's care it makes for a relaxing and... More

Reef Seen seems to have found the perfect combination of relaxed friendliness and extreme professionality. The managers try to suit every diver's interest when they set up the different boats for the day, but always have time for a conversation through the day. The dive sites in the area are good and diverse. The reefs are very healthy in this... More

Very good stay at the resort and used the diving facilities for about a week. If you're looking for bars, nightlife, shopping etc, don't go here. If you love to be at a lovely small resort in a quit place this is the place. Accommodation basic but well maintained and clean. Diving instruction very good and professional. Wouldn't hesitate to...

We had a very good experience with Reef Seen divers.Went diving at Pulau Mejangan, which was extremely beautiful, lots of marine life, beautiful coral formations. I would definately recommend diving there (and not one of the others reefs of the coast of Pemuteran). The diving at reef seen was very comfortable, the staff made you feel safe. Everything was taken... More
