I spent 3 weeks in Lembongan in almost daily contact with the World Diving staff as my boyfriend dived the entire time with them. I’m not a diver, but I did a discovery dive about a week into our holiday and went snorkeling on their diving trips on several days.
I was very happy with the level of teaching regarding the discovery dive and my instructor’s calmness, as well as the equipment. I was told World Diving charges only for what you actually do on the discovery dive, so if you decide not to go diving in the open water after the pool practice, you won’t be charged the entire price. The open water portion of the discovery dives is done on the very calm and shallow House Reef just off the Jungutbatu beach, so it’s a safe location to try diving.
I loved the snorkeling with World Diving around Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Penida. Most diving sites they use are also good for snorkeling, and they let you know if the day’s sites are not (Blue Corner, for example). Snorkeling is not the main activity for World Diving, but they are happy to take snorkelers along on the diving boats. World Diving has a lovely big boat with a toilet and a sun deck, and a couple of smaller boats. The boat captains will keep an eye on the snorkelers, tell them where the current is going, and pick them up when they are ready to come back up. You get all equipment from the diving club and they are of good quality, and there are safety vests on the boats that can be used for snorkeling if needed. I snorkeled on 6 or 7 different sites and almost all of them were filled with marine life and different corals to look at, often it felt like swimming in fish soup! I found only one of the sites too crowded with other boats and snorkelers on organized snorkeling trips, but that wasn’t World Diving’s fault and all the other sites were uncrowded and rather peaceful to snorkel.
A special mention must go to the friendliness of the staff at World Diving. From the owners (who we briefly met) and office managers to instructors, dive masters and boat captains, everyone was very helpful and kind. We came to trust the office managers for all kinds of issues besides diving and snorkeling, from local info on the best shops and massage places to ferry tickets and booking a transit hotel on the Bali main island.
They also have the most charming cats and dogs at the diving club! Mr Cat, Lucy, Murphy, and the rest of the gang stole our hearts, not to mention the frequent visitor foster puppies from Paws of Lembongan!

Dear villimiina, Wow! This is the best review I have ever had the pleasure of answering from a non diver. Thank you for such a detailed response. I know our crew will love reading this one as they put so much effort into making sure our guest have the best experience possible. Congratulations on taking part in our Discover Scuba Diver programme. Our plan is always to give people control over their diving experiences with us with no pressure to do something they do not enjoy. Can we tempt you to come back and take the Open Water Course? All the best. The World Diving Team.

I did 14 fun dives around Nusa Penida with World Diving Lembongan over the course of seven days. Some dives site were so-so, but others were really really good. For example, I saw manta rays, many turtles, lots of nudibranch, mantis shrimp, rays, eels, plenty of different types of fishes, and too many other things to mention. Oh, and did I mention that there was a WHALE SHARK? Whoaaaaaaa. Some of the dive sites have coral that’s in great shape too.

World Diving itself is a professional outfit. Their divemasters are fun and know what they’re doing. They really cared about making sure I had fun dives. World Diving also has the largest boat around, which makes for comfortable dive trips.

I stayed in one of the Sea View rooms, which was functional but basic. It also could be maintained better; for example, giant paint flakes were chipping off the doors. And the shower water was a little bit salty. You can find better accommodation for the price nearby—very nearby too, so don’t worry about that—and I will do that next time I’m on Lembongan.

All in all though, if you’re going to Lembongan to dive, I highly recommend World Diving for their lovely people and their professionalism.

Dear PeterAkkies, Thank you so much for this great review. I have been diving out here since 1991 and so far have only managed to see two whale sharks, so I am just a little bit envious. We always like getting in a review that gives us ideas of what we can do to be that bit better. I accept your comments about the rooms. We have a scheduled painting and renovation programme starting this month and that should rectify the issues you found with the rooms. I do hope that we see you out here again in the not too distant future. All the best. The World Diving Team.

My husband and I dove for two days with World Diving and had a great experience. Booking with them over email was easy, the gear they provided was good, and their guides and staff were very helpful.
Our dives were nice, the dive sites they picked were lovely and had some very cool wildlife.
This is a no frills diving operation, so expect to set up your own gear (with help if you need it). Lunch was a tasty local noodle and rice dish served in a banana leaf and eaten with your hands. Their staff were also super helpful when we asked about things like restaurant recommendations and getting a boat back to Bali.
Also, the office cat, 'Mister Cat' is a sweetie.

Dear Jlandrew11, Thank you for this terrific review, and a huge thank you from Mr. Cat too! He gets fed up when all the fish, boats and crew get a mention when he works so hard to make the guests happy : ) I am so glad that you enjoyed the dives around Nusa Penida and I hope we can tempt you to come back again to see more of what our islands have to offer. All the best. The World Diving Team

Me and my boyfriend Maarten came to World Diving to get his Open Water course. All
was organized by Andrea very well. The price was good value. The sea view rooms were amazing; every evening a different sunset and you can walk from the doorstep directly to the beach. They have a swimming pool area where you can relax as well.
The dive instructor Adam was very thorough, patiënt and friendly. We went a couple time for lunch with him he showed us his local restaurants to eat at.
Only small thing was that the camera was not working so we couldn’t take any photos under water and that we had to pay for petrol for a further dive we didn’t know in advance but it was not a big problem for us, maybe it is common over there.
Definitely recommend this diving school to everyone!

I recently enjoyed every moment of my week diving with World Diving Lembongan.

Most readers will want to know the dive operation is absolutely First Class. The dive boats are well equipped, dive masters, including Putu and Danny are incredibly knowledgeable (and friendly) and the sites are selected to ensure the best conditions. Others I spent time with said the PADI courses were lots of fun, and professional.

Drift diving around Lembongan has to be experienced to be believed.

I spent a week in a Seaview room, on the beachfront and a few steps from the dive ship. It was great. Bed was super-comfortable, the bathroom "worked" and I enjoyed a million dollar location for less than anyone would expect.

And the Sunset Bar, again mere steps away, is a great meeting place for after-dive drinks, and meals. Food is delicious...I really enjoyed their curries!

Finally, there are lots of other bars and restaurants a very short walk away. The beach itself is beautiful.

I'll be going back. If you want a fantastic diving experience, good, clean accommodation at the "right" price and in the best location, contact John and Sue at World Dive. Be assured they will provide a warm welcome, and a great stay.

HINT: Use Arthamas fast boats for your transfers from Sanur...they drop you on the beach directly in front of WD!

We had a great experience with World Diving! Andrea, Gede, and the rest of the WD team were great to us. Our teenage daughter did her PADI course with WD and, though she was a bit nervous to start, had a great experience under the professional guidance of Gede. I joined a couple of dives off the coast of Penida Island with my daughter and others, and we absolutely loved the experience. Despite the fact that there are many dive shops on Nusa Lembongan, I highly recommend working with World Diving!

I went on a two dive trip and they were nice enough to allow my friend to snorkel on the same boat. My first dive was to manta point while second dive was to Crystal bay. I was lucky enough to see many mantas for the first dive. Everything was well organised and I highly recommend world diving to others coming to nusa lembongan.

Dear jerilynxd, Thank you so much for these fantastic five stars! I know that our crew work very hard to give our guests the very best possible experience, whether diving or snorkelling. I love seeing Mantas, even after 17 years of diving with them, they are the most graceful and gentle creatures. I do hope that once world events settle down, you find your way back to us for more marvelous marine encounters! All the best. The World Diving Team.

This was the most amazing diving experience. We researched Lembongan diving before we left and knew it would be good…. But it was better than that, it was absolutely amazing.

We chose Mola Mola season and knew you would still have to be extremely lucky to see the main attraction… and yes…. We got them 🙏

The jewel in the crown for diving on Lembongan Island was World Diving, as they were just fantastic. The whole operation was very professional, very safe and the whole team were there to ensure your experience was the best it could be.

John and Sue heading up were great, our dive guard Dani was the best and the rest of the team were amazing and were all on the same page, wanting to deliver amazing memories. They did it 💪

We have to have a special mention to Dani, who put up with the crazy gang and all their antics. Singing the days away on the dive boat. Cries of… we love you Dani , we do…. We love you Dani, we do, could be heard across the bays of Lembongan and the surrounding Islands.

The diving delivered everything that was on our tick list…. Mola Mola, Manta Rays, Wobbegong Shark, white tip sharks, grey shark, so many turtles, leaf fish, frog fish, Banded sea snakes…. The list was endless and amazing.

If you are going to dive here, do not look past World Diving, there an an absolute pleasure.

Thanks to all involved in delivering the most amazing experience. We will never forget our time here and the gang are in agreement, that we will be going back for sure 😀

Top quality service and experience. Our thanks and best wishes go to the whole team for making our holiday so memorable.

Tony, Angela, Brian and Cate from the Uk ❤️

Sue and John were so welcoming, and went out of their way to make sure I had a great time diving two days in a row; and they were great helping set my wife up to go snorkeling while the rest of us dove. The gear was all in great condition, and the boat was comfortable (they even had a roof deck with beam bag chairs). They also served a pretty tasty lunch between the first and second dives, and they had coffee, tea, and water on board for the whole trip. I would highly recommended this dive company in Lembongan.

I completed my PADI certification at World Diving Lembongan. I wasn’t sure I was up to the challenge but from start to end the staff (instructors and other employees) proved to be professional, serious and qualified making me feel secure and confident. At the same time, they were also really kind and helpful! I thought that I was scared and that diving wasn’t for me, but I felt really confortable and contained. Apart from obtaining my certification, we had a great time diving, seeing corals and lots of different species! It was amazing! I really recommend World Diving Lembongan!
