About
Our PADI Five star dive centre is one of, if not the finest around and if scuba diving in Bali is your thing then OK Divers is the place for you. After being in Padangbai for already ten years the dive centre has been fully re-furbished and has only recently re-opened making our facilities are second to none. Boasting a brand new training pool which was built for beginner divers, large equipment room able to accommodate for more than twenty divers and their equipment, relaxing hammocks looking over a beautiful beach view and our own local restaurant, we are able to cater to nearly anyones needs. Our facilities are all very clean and our staff are more than happy to help you with anything you may need to make your holiday in Bali more enjoyable. We offer the full range of diving courses starting with a one day Discover Scuba Diving experience, maybe your Open Water Course or we can even take you all the way through to Rescue Diver and Divemaster. Our highly qualified instructors are able to speak English, Spanish, Czech and Slovakian and we have learning materials in seven different languages including German, Spanish, Dutch, Korean, Indonesian, Chinese and Russian. Our instructors not only dive because it is their job, we dive because we love diving and make it our mission to pass on that love to every guest and make you part of the diving family. Part of our PADI dive centre at OK Divers includes an air-conditioned classroom to do all your studying in, even giving you a view through one of our two viewing windows into our training pool or if it suits you relax in a bean bag and get some sun while you learn about your next scuba diving adventure.

One of the friendliest and accommodating dive centers we have had the pleasure of diving with.

Our trip was booked for the end of March of 2020 and we all know how that went! The week before we were supposed to go, the whole world shut down.

As soon as Singapore and Indonesia opened to international travellers we contacted OK divers to see if they were able to accommodate us. They were but the dive package that we booked back in 2020 wasn't available anymore. They offered an alternative and it didn't disappoint.

The dive center is clean and well organised. Trips by boat that start in Padangbai leave at 9am.Shuttle trips to Ahmed and Tulamben leave earlier.

Around 8:30am the tanks and the gear are set up. You can have them set it up for you or you can do it by yourself. We have our own gear and like setting it up by ourselves. Nitrox is readily available and you can have them check the O2 levels. The staff are very helpful with any issues you may have with your gear or theirs.

The rental gear looks new and well maintained. Wetsuits are available in all sizes as are shoes, BCD's and fins. I did not hear anyone complain about the availability of gear.

We did 20 dives with OK divers and 16 of them were with Regig. It was really comfortable and calming to have the same guide on so many of the dives.
Regig taught me how to stay calm during swells and currents and also helped me accept the movement of the sea. I really wasn't used to this sensation.

He's a seasoned diver and knows where to find the smallest of creatures. He's also vey patient. My dive buddy loves to take pictures and he would patiently wait until my buddy gave the OK that the picture was taken.

Arya is the most relaxed and happy person you'll ever meet. He organised our dives and is really fun to dive with. He's attentive, relaxed and it's a pleasure to see him in the water. He's always around to ask how your dive was, to help you identify the creatures you saw and to make any changes to your diving plans. He took us to the underwater cave and a dive through. That was an amazing experience!

If you are looking for a well organised, well maintained, safe but not too serious dive center, OK divers is the place to be.

Check in was quick and painless with a welcoming drink after the journey from the airport. The whole complex, which has 2 floors,is centred round a small pool with a swim up bar. The rooms are a bit tired and drab,but clean and with comfortable bedding. Breakfast is fairly meagre, 3 cereals ,mixed fruit,breads, choice of how you wanted your eggs with faux sausage,ham and bacon ( no pork in sight). The dive team were very good and although of mixed nationalities spoke very good English, they were all knowledgeable about the dive sites and general area. I am returning later this month so that answers t the question of would I use again, and I would definitely recommend it, especially for divers.My only two gripes are the price of the beer and food and the trucks sounding their horns at night as they head for the adjacent harbour.

Very well run operation! Dive guides and instructors are very knowledgeable and friendly. Admin team was on the ball and always quick to respond. I dived with them in September then took my son back there in October so he could complete his theory and open-water training. I’d like to give a specific ‘two thumbs up’ to Arya. He was super patient and super diligent when he trained my son. Thanks so much - he’ll never forget it!!

My sister and I dove for the first time with OK Divers after looking them up on the PADI website. (The number of diving companies in Candidasa is overwhelming for a first-timer, who doesn’t know the difference.) I’m so glad I chose them.

Cathy walked us through all the equipment in their deep, salt-water pool before we set out on the boat, and put us at ease. The diving itself was nothing short of spectacular! A whole world of coral and an incredible variety of fish below the surface. We went to about 12 meters just a five minute boat ride from Padangbai, and spent about half an hour on the bottom. (I then went out a second time for another 40 minutes.)

Then the fact that their hotel is right there in Padangbai means that you can shower, change, and eat lunch as soon as you get off the boat. Plus, they were cheaper than the prices quoted to us by companies in Candidasa. Highly recommend OK Divers!

We loved this hotel and came specifically for the diving and to have our 12 year old become padi certified. The room was the family suite on the ground floor, the food was really lovely, the staff were really friendly and the diving instructors were very patient with us. I was only recently certified and was very nervous but the instructors were kind and really patient. The highlights for us was diving at the rock wall on the white sand beach. We would definitely come back again! The town is very small and easily walked in about fifteen minutes. We felt safe and secure, the buffet breakfast was also perfect. The chef will cook what you ask for and there is a selection to choose from. Only issue was internet dropped out a lot but we had our own so not a huge deal. We had read that the rooms were noisy on a few reviews here but did not find that at all. We did hear the ferries but that was during the day. Highly recommend! Thank you to the staff that made this such an enjoyable experience.

Visited OK Divers for first time dive in 2019, and again this time was just as wonderful experience as the last, picked padang bai diving spots with a group of friends. The way the group was handled was both professional and comfortable, the instructors were clear and also fun. Despite the rainy weather and less than ideal visibility conditions, the 2 diving spots were still beautiful and full of unique and colourful life, such as lion fish and rays and morray eels. Would definitely visit again, maybe for getting my license this time. Thank you OK Divers for another wonderful diving experience!

Everything was perfect. People’s attitude, compliance and friendliness and their endless smile on their faces which brightened my day! Hotel was flawless, the best thing was a pool. Another thing which astonished me was the opportunity to do a scuba diving course with professionals. Another thing was that they do care about environment and try to reduce the amount of waste which is produced in hotels.

I went for 2 nights to Padangbai to find a trip to Manta Point which I really wanted to see. None of the dive operators were going the day I would spend in Padangbai except OK Divers. I asked a lot of dive operators about the price. Most were like 1.050.000IDR, but OK Divers asked for 1.280.000IDR. Since it seemed like my only option I took it. We did two great dives and we saw mantas! That was an experience never to forget. On the boat we were served cookies and fruits. Around 15.00 maybe later we got back to the restaurant. No lunch was served and the food at the restaurant was more then 20.000IDR, what I had left of the 1.3mlnIDR I had on me because they told me we would get snacks for lunch. So I had a great experience but if a nice lunch was included the price it would be perfect.

Dear Thomas, Thank you for joining us on our trip to Manta Point. I still remember when you came to the office and ask if you can come with us. Our boat was already nearly fully booked but I did you a favour and take you on board because you wanted to see the mantas really very much and by your words there was no one else going there next day and you could not stay any longer. As you could only presented very little diving experience (6 dives included OWD) we even had to change the diving profile of the other 3 divers diving in your group, because we always try to be very personal and most importantly safe. Due to no space on the boat we could not put another guide only for you which we usually do for such a diving novice. Elena guided a beautiful and safe Manta Point dive and you thanked to her for seeing a lots of mantas. Not all of the other diving schools joining us that day on our boat where so fortunate and some of them didn't see mantas at all. I guess the appreciation of a good dive guide comes with more diving experience. I do honestly have no idea where you took the prices of the other operators in Padang Bai from. I only hope it was not a deliberate lie and only misunderstanding. Maybe when you were looking for dive school you probably just did not really properly understand how the prices are build. Most of the operators list the prices without equipment and put the rental price of a gear as an extra charge. Our prices include the equipment but we offer a discount of 120 000 IDR for everyone with own set. Here I put the prices of the relevant dive operators in Padang Bai : Blue Bubble 1150 000 IDR + 120 000 equipment Water Worx 135$ with equipment (today rate 1 464 000 IDR) Absolut Scuba 125$ with equipment (toady rate 1 355 000 IDR) Gecko Dive 1 395 000 IDR wit equipment 4Fun Diving 135$ with equipment (today rate 1 464 000 IDR) OK Divers 1 280 000 IDR with equipment You can see that we are basically one of the cheapest ones although we operate the fastest and most comfortable diving boat in Padang Bai. Our Dipe Boot II can reach the Manta Point in 45 minutes while some of the others needs even double of that time. When I was booking you on the trip I said we offer hot tee, coffee, water, cookies and fruit during our surface interval. I did not promise you any lunch at all but it may be another misunderstanding from your side same like the prices of diving. We take a lunch when we do 3 or more dives. That day it was only two so a snack has been always sufficient for all our customers so far. Anyway with more diving experience you will understand that big meal in between dives is something you do not really want have. We are a Dive centrum on the first place not a restaurant and just because we happen to have an extra catering business that does not mean our divers eat for free in there. But that at least explain why even after you wrote down your logbook and got from Sami a free video from Manta point you were still sitting and waiting for something in the restaurant. Next time just say something and I promise I may invite you for couple of sandwiches if 30 000 IDR (3$) for fried rice in our NO Name scuba Warung is a big price. In OK Divers we put great effort to be as personal as possible and always try very hard to deliver the best service. We are very sorry that you got hungry after diving, while actually siting in the restaurant with every other divers happily eating after stunning dives. Next time if you will expect some extra service just let us know.
