“Professional, cheap and excellent diving and home-stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

We decided on Aqua Dive Paradise after reading reviews online. We sure picked the right one. Kadek and his team answered reliably and fast our emails which is a good start. The bungalow was clean, with a good bed and bathroom and a mosquito-net. Breakfast was a good banana-pancake and tea. Diving is world class. We had been travelling for 2 months in Indonesia diving everywhere before coming to Tulamben and we both agreed that this was one special place. Try the night dive! The guys take care of you from the start and will happily oblige to your diving request if its doable. I recommend ADP to everyone and wish all the same hospitality we got!

“Great little bungalows and dive centre!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

The bungalows were spotlessly clean and at a very reasonable rate. Wayan our dive guide was fantastic, especially for a nervous diver like myself, he put me at ease very quickly. He knew the Liberty wreck and coral gardens like the back of his hand and was always quick to show us things we would have missed like the pigmie seahorses!
Thank you again for all your help and guidance on the dives, loved every minute of it!!!

“Great Fun!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

This seemed to us like a great place for our first dive from the Trip Advisor reviews and the quick responses by Kadek to our emails and we couldn't have been more right! Kadek and team were warm and friendly and put us totally at ease. As assured earlier, we had one dive master each and Kadek and Wayan were simply wonderful. Though the big waves were initially frightening, once under water, we were just blown away by the beautiful fish and coral. In between the dives, Made kept us entertained with his rendition of Bollywood songs and we happily trooped off for our second dive without a worry! This is a must visit not only for an amazing dive but also for a really fun time with these warm wonderful people :)

“Tulamben Liberty Wreck....AMAZING!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

We were on a two week vacation/honeymoon and left with the intention that diving would be a large part of our trip, seeing that we were in Bali and all.

We left Ubud and were still on a rough from the white water rafting trip when we came into Tulamben. We were overwhelmed as this is the "Bali" we were truly after.... Remote, clean, cheap and best of all literally minutes of walking to dive in some of the most rich fish life we have seen.

When you arrive you will be approached and have the option of multiple dive companies along the one street in and out of Tulamben. We politely said no thanks to some companies on the way in and finally ended up at our villa. When we arrived and settled in we began our hunt for a dive shop to take us around Tulamben. After a recommendation from the woman running the little villa we were staying at she recommended Aqua Dive Paradise. The owner personally met us at the villa (granted only 200 yds. away), however incredible customer service!

Once we decided to go with them, we met Nyoman (our dive instructor) and my new wife and I went on our first adventure with him and ended up doing a total of 7 dives. She is very hesitant when diving with a new company, but they put her at total ease and were incredibly professional. We went inside and outside of the ship and saw fish including schools and massive triggers, barracuda, eels and many many other fish I could only dream of seeing. While the visibility was variant depending on the days it was truly an incredible experience.

if you are luck enough to go and dive in Tulamben I would highly, highly, highly recommend diving with this team.

Jason & Maggie!
