Dived with Ikandive two years in a row now... great staff, very helpful and ready to adapt to changing requests, divemasters are great at seeing the small stuff underwater.

Special thanks to Claire for helping with setting up the trip :)

Found this dive centre by TripAdvisor and Google search. Reviews seemed good. Upon contacting them via WhatsApp, they were very responsive and were able to accommodate my wife and daughter snorkeling and my son and I scuba diving all from the same boat. They arranged a pick up/ return from our Nusa Dua hotel.
Upon arriving at the centre, we were briefed about the five locations and the logistics, filled our forms and were asked to show our certifications. Good stuff 👌
We were introduced to our dive guide, Jojor and when I mentioned we had our own equipment, Jojor said he wants to inspect all of my equipment. Great stuff 👍
Turns out, Jojor was not only a really experienced diver, but just a really nice guy. Super friendly, well spoken, a font of knowledge, and a real pleasure to be guided on our dives. My son and I had amazing scuba dives and Jojor showed us things we hadn't seen before (because we had never looked properly). Little glass shrimp for example. Amazing! Padangbai was really very amazing to dive. Beautiful drop off wall, amazing coral, tonnes of fish and macro sealife.
My wife and daughter also loved the snorkeling and got to feed the fish and be surrounded by massive fish numbers. They were guided by the great boat skipper, who was quiet but very professional also. Apologies I don't know his name.
All round great day, really professionally run trip.
Jojor, thank you so much! You're a dive legend! Loved having you teach us so many things. My whole family loved you and you really made our day. And skipper and Ikandive, thank you also for being so great.
Would love to come back and enjoy this little gem of a location more next time.

I contacted Ikandive to organize a diving trip in Bali after recommendation from a friend. Claire (the owner) provided me with different options and was very attentive to my wishes concerning accommodation and diving. I ended up choosing an 'all-included' package with 20 dives in 3 sites, accommodation and transfers (combined with visits at local temples, rice paddies, ...) for a total of 13 days.

My experience with Ikandive exceeded my expectations. The diving is world-class (the highlight was USS Liberty by night - vibrant with life), the drivers are punctual and polite, the divemasters are very knowledgeable about the local species and safety-oriented, the provided lunch was always tasty local food, and the hotels chosen by Claire were excellent value for money. From pick-up at the airport until drop-off 13 days later, all the logistics was handled by Claire and the staff at Ikandive. I just had to show up in the morning and enjoy the day of diving. I brought my own equipment, but theirs seems to be in good shape. As a bonus, the fellow divers I met at Ikandive were all interested in sharing and discussing post-dive, which added to the experience. I can only recommend Ikandive for the professionalism and overall lovely atmosphere I have felt during my stay with them.

Claire organized an extraordinary stay for us alternating visits and dives. We were a group of 6. We were able to choose our hotels, diving locations and visits. Our dive guide was very attentive and professional.
The club is on a human scale, everything is done for customer satisfaction. Thank you again, we will definitely come back!

We were extremely well received by Claire and her husband and the children were able to indulge in the joys of diving for the first time in a calm, secure and friendly environment.
Thank you for your welcome and these two discovery dives that the children will remember!

Claire and Mahoui are simply great:
Super available, super nice, super professional both for the organization of the stay and for the dives.
The services provided are multiple: 100% organization of the stay; adaptation and listening for the choice of destinations on the island, visits and dives; They take care of everything for the equipment (personal or rented), storage when you are not diving, transport from the boat to the club, rigging, cleaning and rinsing, etc.; The food provided at lunchtime during dives is of high quality; the kindness of its team, the professionalism of the group guides who know how to show you the wildlife to discover and even in macro; ...
Full box therefore this great team.
