We recently spent a few days in The Menjangan with our teenage sons, and really enjoyed diving around Menjangan island with the Blue Season team. Ben was very responsive and helpful from the first moment I contacted him to inquire about our options and helped us plan our trip, and the dive masters were superb! They were very experienced, knowledgeable, responsible, friendly and thorough. The dive sites are mostly wall dives, full of beautiful, healthy coral, and lots of lively marine life, although being the beginning of the rainy season, visibility wasn't always great. There were only mild or no currents, which was good for us, as we are not thrill-seekers underwater. We really enjoyed the dusk dive in the house reef to see the rare mandarin fish. And although we didn't see them mating, we did manage to catch a glance of a few of these beautiful little creatures hiding in the coral. It was a great way to start the new year!

Dear all, Huge thanks for this great feedback… The whole team enjoyed spending time with you also, and it was a pleasure to see how enthusiastic and curious were your sons, and how concerned but finally pleased you personally were with safety, good organization, etc. It is always nice to see that our guests appreciate every effort we make to give our best, and share with us this passion we like to share so much! Menjangan is definitely a great place to get the Fish ID specialty, isn’t it? I look forward to welcoming you again for the next ones, or just for exciting fun dives! Warm greetings. Ben

What a great experience !

I was totally impressed by this dive center : My dive master Komang went far beyond the call of duty to make my 2 dives @ Menjangan island memorable.

Everything was handled very professionally from A to Z. We had 2 outstanding dives and could clearly tell that Komang was perfectly aware of local dive sites location and helped to highlight as much as he could the numerous underwater wonders of Menjangan.

Blue season is the place to go if you want great dives and total safety.

Congrats to the team !

My friend and I have been diving with Dan for three days, doing three dives per day. Even before we finalised the details it was clear to me that on this diving trip we are going to dive in the North-West. Been there before I knew that Menjangan, Pemuteran and PJ offer some of the best diving in Bali.

It was easy to organise the trip via email and after hearing what we want to do, Dan offered us a really excellent package. He even took into account that I was diving for a couple of days in the South before coming up to MNG and changed my schedule there so that the trip to the North-West didn't happen on a day when I already spent 4 hours travelling to dive the USS Liberty.

As you can imagine we arrived with quite high expectations and we weren't disappointed. The Menjangan Resort is a very special and relaxed place and we loved our accommodation. Dan took good care of us and it is just fun to dive in such a place with your buddy and an experienced guide. Since this is not big group diving, we were free to change our diving arrangements and choose the time we wanted to start. The diving was great and we logged a lot of "macro" and critters including the mandarin fish, ghost pipe fish, mimic octopus and frog fish.

Some of the previous reviews complained about the high price. I do agree that there are certainly cheaper options but for me being a DM myself these are no options or at least not comparable. The service, equipment and quality of the dive guide has to be taken into account. Blue Season @ Menjangan offers an unique diving experience at highest standard and I am happy to pay the price to get a certified, experienced guide and well maintained equipment.

I am certainly going to return to the North-West of Bali and its great underwater environment. When I return I will obviously choose Blue Season @ Menjangan again.

Menjangan Island has the most beautiful wall dives, some of the largest fans and colourful coral in the world. We saw the mandarin fish mating, electric clams and frog fish.
Komang dive master is very organized and took care of everything even transport from Bali.
Menjangan is a protected reef but still had garbage floating around. It made me sad but the dive master always collected it off reef.

I became a certified PADI Open Water diver at The Menjangon and it’s all thanks to the excellent dive instruction of Ben. I was very nervous but Ben was very patient and understanding, putting me at ease, whilst ensuring that I did things properly. I appreciate his perfectionism as I wanted to do it right to gain my confidence. I was pleased that we didn’t shortcut any of the exercises. Ben made the dives fun and relaxing by showing me various fish, especially Mother Nemo fish who pecked at his mask to warn him away from the babies – a sight that will remain with me forever. I shall be eternally grateful to Ben and fully recommend him to anyone wanting to learn to dive. Diving and snorkelling in the bay and around Menjangan Island is fantastic – I wish we had spent a few more days there.

Dear Nova… How can one not be moved by such an enchanting review? Many blushing thanks… Please don’t forget that you’ve been a very enthusiastic and motivated guest, facing your original fear with great courage. All the credit goes to you. Passion and professionalism (which are key words in Blue Season Bali at The Menjangan) did the rest easily, and it was a real pleasure helping you to build confidence underwater (Menjangan area providing ideal conditions for this). Regarding the few more days you wish you had, let’s organize them whenever you want! We look forward to welcoming you again for your Avanced Open Water Course, or just for great fun dives around our beautiful island. We stay in touch anyway. Best regards, Ben.

Dive operators have a difficult balance to maintain. The rigor required from managing a risky activity, equipment to fit, etc. and the relaxed experience many tourist seek, particularly when diving on tropical reefs. Ben does an excellent job keeping this balance. Our group included novice and experienced divers of all sorts. Some of us had some equipment, others none. The diversity did not phase Ben and he delivered a great experience and lots of fun memories. We saw a hawksbill turtle too - what a delight on the recovering coral reef of pulau menjangan.

Dear all, a great experience in a professional and rigorous, but relaxed and fun atmosphere, nothing can fit better than your words to what we are delighted to try to provide every day to our guests in Blue Season Bali at The menjangan. Thanks a lot! About the coral reef of Menjangan, you still have a lot to discover! From Underwater cave to Eel Garden, the island is full of treasures. It is very nice to welcome groups like yours, people interested by marine life and excited about the experience, sharing our good mood like you did. Komang and I are waiting for you anytime for the next dives, and we will adapt to your needs and different levels again with pleasure. Best thoughts from the jungle, Ben.

My family and I have just recently spent a few days at The Menjangan beach resort. One of our main reasons for choosing this resort specifically was because of the great reviews we had seen on the scuba diving in the area. We had two days of diving during our stay there (4 dives in total). The option for more dives per day is possible. Ben, the dive manager, is more than willing to tailor your outing to your liking which is quite refreshing to the conveyor belt one usually gets placed on when diving with other companies in world renowned diving areas. Two things that truly stood out for me during our dives were: 1) the great service the company delivered, the diving guides Kanang and Petut were fantastic, both guides were very experienced and looked after us very well underwater and 2) the integrity of the diving sites we dived in. Having dived quite a bit I found the dive sites well respected and in better shape than many places I had dived in before. All-in-all the dives were fantastic. A very big thank you to team Blue Season Bali at The Menjangan.

Dear Nicolas, What a pleasure to read from you here… Thank you for this lovely comment! It is true that we are very lucky here to have Putu and Komang, two guides amongst the best in Bali, if not the best… They were very happy to hear about your feedback, which I gave them as soon as I read it. From my side, it was a pleasure to receive you, to arrange everything for your convenience, and to make your whole family discover the beauty of the island with us. Feel free to come back anytime, you know already that you will be very welcome! Best regards, Ben.

We snorkeled with Blue Season Bali and it was incredible. They provide lunch and a guide who points out cool sea creatures as he finds them. Worth every penny (and the long drive up there!).

Dear Amanda, Thanks a lot for your kind appreciation of our work here… You are right, snorkeling here in Menjangan is for sure a fantastic experience, especially with the guides from The Menjangan, who know the Island and its treasures so well… Next time, I hope we will have the pleasure to have you try scuba diving! We hope you noticed how perfect it is here for beginners… We look forward to seeing you again in Bali! Best regards, Ben.

I unfortunately only got to do three dives with Blue Season Bali, but I can't say enough great things about them. From Edu's help planning the dives before arriving in Bali, to diving with Komang, an excellent divemaster (he found me a pygmy seahorse!), my only complaint is that I couldn't do more diving with them. Highly recommended.

Pro tip: Go during the low season. You'll likely have dive sites to yourself.

The dive operation onsite (Blue Season) is top-notch. Divemaster Putu was among the best I've ever had the privilege to dive with. His ability to spot interesting fish and micro organisms is incredible. He helped us get some great photos and we really enjoyed our dive with him.

Local Menjangan Island dives are excellent - great visibility and healthy reefs. It was some of the best diving I've done in a long time. They encouraged us to try an offsite dive called Secret Bay and it was well worth it. Like nowhere else you'll ever dive.

They cared about us and our gear. They ran a great and safe operation, both for us and the reefs we were visiting.
