I really enjoyed my experience diving with these guys. They were very well organised - the hotel pick up was on time as was everything else during the two days that I dived with them.
I went to Padang Bay and Nusa Penida.

You will be able to book your dives on their website. The website has a calendar for you to look at what trips are available and when. If you can’t find a trip that suits you, you can drop them a mail and they’ll coordinate something for you. Prices of dives vary depending on where you go. There are many dive sites around Bali. Since your Husband is a tech diver he might find the trip to Nusa Penida or Tulamben very rewarding. Happy diving!

Thankyou for your enquiry and for choosing Bali Diving. We know you will be very happy with your decision. I have included information on a very popular three day, seven dive package which includes dives at four of Bali's most popular and best dive spots - Padang Bai, Tulamben, Nusa Penida, and Manta Point.
This covers the 3 major diving areas of BALI and the most popular dive sites. There's a lot more information on our web page.
You can hire a Go Pro underwater camera for just $29 a day - BYO Micro SD memory card or buy one in our shop.
Naturally you can select to do just one or two of these dives as a stand alone dive if you prefer, and you can add additional dive sites such as Amed, Gili Tepekong, Seraya and others depending on availability. Please make sure you ask if you want to dive more than 3 days, or you would like to add extra dive days or dive sites
We do ask that you give us a little flexibility on dates if you can, as our prices are based on "group" diving and we need to reach a minimum number, especially for Nusa Penida, to make a trip viable. This is particularly important if you are joining as a single diver 😀
We also offer "private" diving for groups if you wish, but minimum group sizes do not apply to private diving bookings.
SHUTTLE BUS PICK UP
Please note that complimentary pick up and drop off in our shuttle bus applies to areas from Nusa Dua to Seminyak, and along the By Pass to Sanur. Outside of this area we need to either provide you with a private car and driver for the day, or arrange a car and driver to pick you up and drop you off. The additional cost of the second option is Rp250,000 for one way and Rp350,000 for both ways, per group pickup, but that is shared between members of your diving group
Padang Bai, on the east coast of Bali is a great way to start your diving holiday, and it's a great way to warm up for the dives that lay ahead. It’s a fabulous dive absolutely teeming with marine life and its famous for its clear water, coral gardens, coral bommies and prolific photo opportunities. Best of all it is just an hour by car North of our dive shop in Sanur
The cost of a two dive trip to Padang Bai on it's own is usually US$115 and includes the hire of equipment. We have regular scheduled dives to Padang Bai almost every day, with pick up from your hotel at 7 – 7:15am (if you are staying in the Nusa Dua, Jimbaran, Kuta, Legian or Seminyak area, later if you stay in Sanur).
Dive Schedule (Two Dives) Padang Bai
7am Pick up from the lobby of your hotel (7:45am if you stay in Sanur)

12:30pm Return to shore and Lunch at the beachfront café
1:30pm Depart from Padang Bai
2;30pm Arrive at Bali Diving Sanur
3 pm Drop off in our courtesy bus to your hotel
NUSA PENIDA with MANTA POINT
Some of Bali’s best diving is off the coast of Nusa Penida, including the legendary Manta Point. We travel to Nusa Penida from Sanur beach using ocean going speedboats, rather than the local "Jukung" outrigger boats which are used for in shore diving.
If you wish to include the opportunity of diving with Manta Rays then the best place to see these is a at Manta Point, also at Nusa Penida, but a bit further around the island, this is one of our most popular diving packages.
The Mola Mola season is generally considered to be between late June/July and November/December, but this season varies year to year with these creatures spotted sporadically all year round. Advance booking for dives at Nusa Penida is always recommended.
If you wish to select our current special offer - which is valid June through to December - The very popular Crystal Bay & Manta Dive - then this a three dive day including all equipment rental for just $178. The package takes in a dive at Manta Point looking for Manta a Rays, then two more dives looking for the giant Ocean Sunfish - the legendary "Mola Mola" in season. We usually start this search at Crystal Bay...but they can be elusive.
Off season we still dive the same sites, but the chances of seeing Mola Mola are much lower.
Advance booking with a deposit is essential for Nusa Penida as very often boats are sold out weeks in advance.
Please note that the area that Molas go for their cleaning stations can be subject to strong currents therefore we will only take confident and experienced divers with at least 10 logged dives beyond Open Water Certification or Certified Advanced Open Water Divers.
PRIVATE DIVE GUIDE
We do also offer a "Private Guide" option for less experienced divers and this option is also popular with underwater photographers. Having your own private guide adds $60.
Private Guides are actually available (on request) for all our dive packages.
I would also definitely recommend Tulamben, on the north east coast of Bali. It’s a fabulous dive absolutely teeming with marine life and its also the shipwreck of the WW2 ship the USAT Liberty.
Scubatravel in the UK have just rated this dive site the 3rd best wreck dive in the world and number 3 on 10 Best Wreck Dive
Tulamben is a dive site that is suited to all divers, from "Try Scuba Diving" participants, Open Water Divers and experienced Underwater Photographers - and divers return to dive this site over and over again. There is much more than just the shipwreck at this site
The normal cost of a stand alone two dive trip to Tulamben is US$115 we are currently running a special promotion which is just $99 for two dives lunch etc. and includes the use of all diving equipment. It's cheaper again if two or more of you book together, please check our website for details.
We have scheduled dives at Tulamben almost every day, again with pick up from your hotel at 7 – 7:15am (if you are staying in the Nusa Dua, Jimbaran, Kuta, Seminyak area). 7:30 - 7:45am for Sanur.

TRY SCUBA DIVING - only available at Padang Bai & Tulamben
If you do not have a diving certification or have never dived before we can take you diving at this site on a "Try Scuba Diving Program".
Its still two dives but you will be supervised directly by a qualified Instructor who will take you diving. All you need to be is medically fit and pay the additional costs of an instructor – so the cost is $119 for two dives as a “Try Scuba Diver”, which includes the cost of hiring all the equipment.
If you are a little nervous, or would like to practice in a pool before heading into the ocean, we can offer this option at Tulamben for just $15 more.
If you have some who wishes to join you for snorkelling it's just $89.90 for Nusa Penida and Manta Point, $59.90 at Padang Bai and $55 for Tulamben. This includes use of all snorkelling equipment, lunch and guide.
Availability for Snorkelling is limited by what trips we have scheduled.
If you have anyone who would like to just come along for the ride, have a relax on the beach with lunch included, then land content is just the ticket @ only $25 per person. Land Content applies to Padang Bai and Tulamben and is for shore based activities only. If you have someone who wishes to join on the boat, then snorkelling rates apply.
We include in our packages:
Two Scuba Dives,
*Free pickup up and drop off with our courtesy shuttle bus ( see serviced area)
Lunch at the beachside cafe, or for Penida a restaurant prepared lunch box.
Bottled Mineral Water,
Porters to carry all your dive
Experienced and qualified Guide/Instructor.
We do ask that all bookings are accompanied by a 25% deposit, this can be made by Pay Pal and you can use a credit card. You do not need a Pay Pal account to make this and I am sure you can understand that accepting a booking requires us to schedule vehicles to your hotel and dive site, allocated drivers, dive gear and guides - so a deposit is appropriate.
Payment by Pay Pal or Credit Card attracts a 3% surcharge. Naturally you can pay the balance in cash on arrival at our Dive Centre in either US Dollars or equivalent Rupiah........and we also accept Visa and MasterCard (as well as most debit cards) but not Amex or Diners.
*If you are a single diver joining one of our scheduled dives - a little flexibility is really appreciated. Try and give us a choice of days if you can.
Please get back to me and let me know if you would like me to reserve a place for any or all of these dives and what dates you would like to book your package so I can add you to our schedule. also please don’t forget to tell us your hotel so we can schedule your pick up!
I look forward to hearing back from you very soon, and if you have any further questions, pleased= do not hesitate to ask?
