Louise and I enjoyed a trip to pedant bay where we dived Bias Tegal and Blue lagoon less than 24 hours after arriving in Bali. The team at Joe’s gone diving were fantastic making sure that we new what our pick up time was from our hotel. When we arrived we were greeted by our instructor/guide and fitted with our equipment which was in very good condition.
Once we hit Padang bay we did two boat dives from a traditional Balinese fishing boat which was very comfortable and perfect for the job. Nanne our instructor was a fantastic guide his brief was detailed and relaxing setting our expectations as for conditions perfectly. Louise who is new to diving was a little nervous about the dive but Nanne was really good and buddied with her increasing her confidence and abilities to a very good level.
Our second day was at the USAT Liberty our instructor Chris was another fantastic guide and was really awesome to dive with he took us down to the wreck and showed us the beautiful reef that had grow over the WW2 wreck.
The team are highly professional and were extremely reliable with organising everything from our home location keeping us in the loop at all times.
Both Louise and I would consider doing courses with the team at Joe’s due to their highly professional team and very relaxing and friendly manner.

My family and I came to Bali for a much needed holiday after 5 years away and we found that Bali improved! Yeah! We saw some really nice things and did some really great activities. One of the highlights was diving a few days at Joe's Gone Diving located in Sanur. The property was really nice, Very well designed, great large pool and excellent facility as good or better then any dive centres in Australia. My son even took his Advanced Open Water Certification there. The free meals offered was really good, Fresh clean large beach towels were provided and there was a large nice brand new boat with showers. The only slightly not so good things was one of the instructor named Denny who slept all the way in the bus and ignored us completely all the way way back to the dive centre plus he looked like he was half asleep most of the time. That was just for one day dive and so we don't mind. Perhaps the company should have a word with him but other than that the other instructors for our other days were good. We highly recommend Joe's Gone Diving as a dive centre to whoever feels like diving in Bali..

I did my PADI Advanced certification here, and they were super friendly and very professional! Jen my Diving instructor was very knowledgeable, super informative and enthusiastic which made the trip that much more enjoyable. Eka helped me with the million questions I had and always responded in time, and they helped arrange pick-up and drop-offs without any hassle.
The dive sites were amazing, and the gear and equipment up to date.

I’ll be back to dive more sites with you guys, thank you!

Highly recommended!!

We had an awesome organised tour to tulamben and two dives at the USAT liberty wreck. The trip was very well organised, Jenny the dive instructor, as well as the whole team is so nice and we felt very welcome and safe. Because the other booked diver canceled, I got even a private dive and we were nearly the only divers at the wreck - highly recommended!

Had a really great experience with Joe’s Gone Diving for fun dives trip to Padang Bai. My dive guide, Jen, is also an instructor, she is very helpful, calm and observant underwater if I have any issues. Mba Eka at the reception is very helpful and booking was seamless. Everyone there is very friendly and thoughtful, prepared some chocolates for the dive interval and towels for shower afterwards. Even the lunch was amazing. Would definitely recommend this dive centre to anyone looking for dive trips around Bali.

Last January 2020, we went on a family trip to Bali and both me and my son decided to go diving, we decided to go to Joe’s as I had dived there the year before. My son decided to do his advanced course and he had a great instructor, we both did some very good diving, manta’s, wreck, turtle etc. Joe’s new owner has definitely upgraded the centre nice new paint with underwater motive and a beautiful new fast boat, The staff was the same as last year and the reception girls are great and super friendly. Having owned a 5*IDC Centre myself I can highly recommend Joe’s Gone Diving.

Our little group consisted of two young men who did their Open Water Course, two certified divers who did fun-diving, and one non-diving mother/wife who kept company to Tumbalen. Instructors Jen and Lou were very professional and adaptive to the situation and we had a great time and fabolous dives. Everything worked out exactly as we wished for. We love Bali and will be back. With a little more experience we would love to go diving Manta Point.

We had such a great experience diving with Joe's gone diving. We have a 10 year old and 8 year old traveling with us. Felix helped arrange our activities that suitable for all four of us. While my 10 year old and I had discovery scuba diving, my husband accompanied our 8 year old snorkelling. Then while my husband had his fun dive with dive master, Coya, the three of us did some snorkeling. Our 8 year old was also given a little taste of diving on the surface.

Our instructor Toto is not just an experienced diver, he is also a fun guy who worked well with kids. He started bonding with the kids while we were in a mini van traveling from sanur to padang bai with his magic tricks. He made the trips fun and enjoyable. The kids love him very much and enjoy their time in the car, on the boat, and in the sea.

Thank you Joe's Gone Diving for such a great diving experience.

We had a great time at Joe's! Our PADI open water instructor, Edi, was fantastic. He made sure we were well-prepared for our ocean dives, which allowed us to make the most of our experience. In the water, he was highly attentive and checked if we were doing okay frequently. He is also a very kind, funny, and caring individual. We were picked up perfectly on time and good food was provided for lunch each day. The facilities/equipment were clean and well-maintained adding to our confidence in the water. With the attention to detail and the graded ocean dives we would give Joe's and especially Edi a 10/10, and our stamp of recommendation if you are thinking about learning to scuba dive in Bali!
