With NicoDivesCool you can enjoy in total safety and relax. We did 7 dives with them and I have no doubt in saying that their professional level is second to no one in my personal experience. They greet you the first day, check your equipment together to prepare your bags and try to solve any last minute issue with your gear if you don’t want to rent theirs (which is totally fine): they offered me fins and a mask with no charge since mine were no adequate for the kind of dive sites we were going to visit.
They provide driver for you from and to the hotel at a cheap fair compared to the taxi (especially if you live far away like us).
We felt very relaxed diving with them, no rush in the morning or between the dives, and the groups are always very small. The feeling to dive with your personal guide is simply fantastic, Nico took my hand to go quickly to check a place we’re he knew he could find a shark so I wouldn’t have lost the chance to take my pictures. They are the only diving center taking the hassle to make picture and videos during the day and sharing with us for free.
I can gladly recommend Nico Dives Cool and all his staff for your vacation. If you think the prices can be a little above average (especially if you compare them to Europe’s ones) think twice because everything is included....transport to and from the dive site (which can take hours for distance and traffic) boat, lunch (in restaurants or boats) absolutely great, dive gear (it’s all included in the dive price) and videos of your dives with them.
Thank you guys for sharing your passion, knowledge and time with us.

Had the most amazing diving experience with Nico and his team. We did the Liberty Wreck dive in Tulemban. As we were staying in Ahmed, Nico rocked up to pick us up in his cool van to transport us to Tulemban. As this was my husband's first dive, safety was our utmost importance. Especially when it came to equalisation as my husband have had some problems with his ears before. Nico took his time to explain and educate us (as it was a few years since my last dive, he threw in the refresher course for me for FREE). We had a pretty good session in the pool that is like right on the beach of the Liberty Wreck before venturing in. Nico's communication and care of us was SUPERB in and out of the water. Despite it was the day of the full moon and eclipse (King tides), Nico and his team made sure our entry and exit was a breeze and safe. After descending 5 meters, the tides did not make any difference, and the wreck was very clear. Due to the pandemic, there was hardly any other divers around hence we were swarmed big schools of fish after fish. All different species. Also, the pricing by Nico is so so so REASONABLE for all the service and experience that was offered. Its been a couple of weeks since our dive and we are still so pumped, and have already booked our next dive with him.

I completed SSI open water with this company yesterday, under the awesome instruction of Toto Sugianto. Not only he made me feel secure underwater during confined water session, he made sure I was fine the entire time during all 4 dives. He also brought his underwater camera during our last wreck dive in Tulamben, and I kid you not, he showed me some magic trick underwater. I highly recommend this dive shop and if you're learning to dive, ask for Toto.

We used Nico dive for an Advanced Open Water course for myself and my 16yo daughter. Communication was really straightforward with everything taken care of in the price of the course. Niko’s dive safety was amazing and I have really learnt a lot taking my diving to the next level. I would really recommend the trip to Nusa Penida, the dive sites are amazing and we got to see our first Manta Rays. A special mention needs to go to Toto who is a dive guide plus a very entertaining magician who really made us laugh. Amazing couple of dives.

Had a fantastic days diving. Nico is a really good guide, professional and friendly. The booking process was easy and streamlined and they were very flexible. All three dive sites that we went too were diverse and standalone excellent dives with the shark pool for the first dive, canyons and swim through on the second and performing cuttlefish on the third. Tasty lunch to complete the day. Great people, excellent service and diving.

What a great experience my time with Nico Dives Cool was! 3 days of sun, perfect water conditions, support and laughs all made my time achieving my Open Water Diver licence something to definitely write home about.

The team were great at taking me through all the steps at a pace best suited to me, while at the same time helping me cope with all the changes happening in the world (COVID-19) while I was so far from home. So not only was a student, but I also felt like part of the Nico family when I needed that most.

The last day of my open water diving course saw me almost losing faith in myself and my new found skills however, with the support of the Nico team, I got my groove back on and smashed this goal off my bucket list!

I can't recommend the group highly enough, and look forward to diving again with Nico Dives Cool and Bali's beautiful manta rays. Thumbs up from Australia 👍🤙👏

I completed my Advanced Certification with Nico dives this week. The booking process was so easy - my emails were always responded to immediately and I was provided with clear and detailed information the entire time.

My instructor Toto in particular made the experience so magical (literally, he is always ready with magic tricks both above and below water!). All dive briefs were explained clearly and he was so patient and focused when explaining skills and guiding us underwater. This really meant a lot to me as I had been out of the water for a while. Added bonuses included amazing food and Totos excellent underwater photography, I would highly recommend this dive shop everything went as scheduled and it is in a good location for some of the best diving sites.

Scuba Diving with my 2 young sons (13 & 10 yo) for their fist time with a feeling of complete safety, control & fun with Nico & his Dive Instructors made this experience for our boys & me the best ever.

To see the nervousness quickly replaced with excitement in their eyes when taking in the underwater beauty of the corals & sea life was the best thing a father could ever ask for as well as now knowing that they will more then ever possible, appreciate the ocean & all the variety of sea life in it.

A truly rewarding experience & I have the highest recommendation for Nico, his dive school & the instructors who accompanied us for our first day of Discovery Dives for our boys; Skills Refresher dive for myself after 25 years of not diving & a 3 day SSI Open Water dive course for our 13YO boy who is now certified & excited to go on his next dive.

Thank you Nico & Team & a very special thanks to Sarah who made all the arrangements so easy & personable so that our holiday remained a holiday & not a complicated affair of travel plans as so often happens.

Nico is the man to dive with in Bali. Nico and his staff are very professional from the clean and comfy pick up van and the new, clean and powerful speed boat to bring us to the diving spots to the attention to detail to provide actually good tasting snacks and fruits to satisfy our after-dive hunver attack. His dive briefings were detailed and extensive. His supervision of the divers is impeccable. Nico is definitely recommended.

Today we had a true adventure with Nico Dives Cool company in Bali. We found them to be very professional and delivered a service of a very high standard.

After coming as a highly recommended snorkelling and diving option, we decided to book a private snorkelling tour to Manta Point and beyond! The tour exceeded our expectations in so many ways.

We were picked up right on time at our hotel in Sanur and we truly felt like we were given a first class treatment for our entire day. With our wonderful guides Tutu and Made going above and beyond to make sure we had an experience we would never forget.

We firstly visited Manta point and snorkelled with magnificent Manta rays and other sea life. We felt safe at all times and not at all rushed. Our guides made sure we enjoyed this unique experience to the full! Always communicating with us to make sure we didn’t miss anything and putting us in the best position to get as close as possible to all of the action.

We then moved to another stunning location, away from crowds. Turquoise clear water where we enjoyed close up encounters with many beautiful Sea Turtles, a huge variety of colourful fish, star fish, coral and more. Honestly, this experience was what dreams are made of!

After a good amount of time to enjoy this 2nd snorkelling experience, we were taken to Nusa Lembongan where we were welcomed by a local family, who prepared a delicious meal for us to share. This was followed by some great photo opportunities and views of the islands stunning beaches.

Our guides and boat driver were so professional, caring, extremely attentive and also lots and lots of fun! We Even enjoyed some magic tricks that kept us so entertained and made our day full of unexpected surprises and a day that was truly unforgettable!

We travelled with our two daughters and one needed extra support. With advance knowledge of this, Nicos Dives Cool made sure they were prepared and ready to give her a day to remember. Nothing was too much trouble to help her in every way and the crew also made sure we could also relax knowing she was always in good hands. We will forever be grateful that they made us feel so safe and secure and gave us this special opportunity to share with our whole family.

We highly recommend Nicos Dives Cool for snorkelling and diving in Bali. You can be assured that you will have a truly amazing experience , you will feel safe and very well cared for. Most of all you will definitely come away with life long memories!
