My fiancé and I are AOW and wanted to see the manta rays the Nusa is so well known for, Purple Dive did not disappoint. Our guide Julie was friendly and knowledgeable and it was amazing having her show us around underwater. The vibe on the boat between dives was fun and relaxed, you could really tell all the staff really enjoyed working with each other as well what they do. We saw so many mantas as well as a drift dive along a coral wall which was absolutely incredible and full of things to see.

Extremely kind, patient and professional team. They will take all the time you need to make sure you feel comfortable and safe. We did our Open Water certification, it lasted 3 days, from 8 am to 1 pm, which included 1 pool training and 4 dives. During your dives, you will see beautiful corals and many exotic fishes and turtles! After the dives, you will enjoy a very tasty lunch from a close Warung, alongside Helsinki and Saucisse, the two companions of the center 🐕 I would like to thank Bastien, our instructor, who made us smile from the start until the very last minute of our classes and went the extra mile for us.

I am a solo female kiwi traveler and I absolutely LOVED my three days at purple dive penida doing my open water certification. It was a great boat, with a small group heading out together. I had Yvonne and Thomas to myself for my training with one day in the pool and two days in the ocean with four different locations. Yvonne made everything really simple to follow and I got to see the most amazing underwater locations including mantas, while successfully completing my skills for certification. The boat crew were great, they are based in a great location where I had accomodation a 10minute walk away and I still had my afternoons to get out and explore penida on land. I could not recommend them more highly if you want to dive in penida, I will be back again for more fun in the water!

We completed our PADI Rescue and EFR course with Purple Dive Penida and had a fantastic experience. Our instructor Yvonne was relaxed, friendly and knew the course inside out, and we even had Divemaster-in-training Thomas volunteer as a ‘victim’ in our rescue simulations. Both worked hard to help us hone our skills both in the pool and the ocean. A delicious lunch from a local warung was provided every day. Alongside our course we were able to see plenty of mantas in the south of the island, and beautiful corals and other marine life in the north. The guides know the island really well and are prepared to change plans depending on the weather or sea conditions to give guests the best dive experiences possible. After doing a lot of diving with male-founded/run dive shops, it was fantastic to see a female-led dive centre - professional, friendly and trilingual! Merci beaucoup to everyone for a great experience, we would highly recommend Purple Dive to anyone looking for a great dive experience on Nusa Penida.

We had beautiful and great dives!! Very friendly staff, relaxed and chill! Starters get to practice in the pool, they are very professional and padi certified! When we had a flat tire the divestaff helped us to get the motorbike to a mechanic, which helped us so much!! We really loved our experience with purple dive. Would really recommend!
