First time staying in East Bali and what a gem we discovered. Next door to our hotel, Karma Royal Kandidasa we met Ludo and Patricia from Southern Dreams Diving who went out of their way to ensure that Andre had an amazing diving experience. They run their dive shop in a professional and friendly way and Andre was blessed to experience local sites 1:1 with Ludo, sharing his wealth of knowledge with him.They also went out of their way to ensure that I, a non diver, had a wonderful day accompanying them on the trip to Tulamben. We wish we ran into them long before and can’t wait to return to Bali, diving with them again.
If you want a personalised, unique and unforgettable experience, contact SDDC. They are the best!

We were diving with the family and we had an excellent experience. They picked us up at the hotel - the Hanging Garden Hotel. After, we dived at the ship Wrack which was so beautiful, a lot of corals and fish. We dived with Ludo and always felt very safe with him.
Also, communication with Patricia was fast and easy. Both heartwarming people.
Everything was as we wanted.
5 star rating!
Thank you, Chris

Diving with Ludo and Patricia is a fun and rewarding experience. Great dive guides employing really good drivers and boat skippers. Diving at Amed, Tulamben and in the Candidasa area is first class. Having already dived on three separate trips with these people, I cannot wait to come back and do it all again.

Thanks to Patricia and Ludo, fabulous instructors, for these great 2 days of diving!
We had, my husband and I, passed our Padi 3 years before and didn’t have the opportunity to dive since then.
Patricia and Ludo took us in hand, each our owninstructor. How lucky !
The apprehension of not having dived for 3 years and doubting my abilities quickly disappeared. Ludo was very patient, he allowed me to regain my self-confidence and to be able to enjoy the splendid seabed of the east coast of Bali.
We are now really looking forward to going back diving!

My wife and I finished our open water certification with Southern Dreams. We couldn't have been happier with the experience! Ludo and Patricia are awesome and we were super comfortable throughout the entire experience. We did a total of 4 open water dives with them and I had planned to do 4 more but I ate something that didn't agree with me and had to cancel. The equipment was well maintained and worked flawlessly. My favorite dive was the USAT Liberty wreck in Tulamben. If we ever go back to Bali, they will be the first ones we contact to set up some dives!

Absolutely amazing two days with Patricia diving in Amed and the Liberty Ship Wreck. We booked after taking a look on the website and messaged via WhatsApp. Responses were very quick and clear and the experience was seamless from pickup to porters at the ready, with lunch set as soon as you come to shore after your last dive of the day. Patricia makes you feel comfortable and will guide you as according to your level. This was our best diving experience ever and can't wait to come back in the near future.

Great Instructors and great diving! I was diving with Ludo, Patricia and Gusti for 2 weeks. We went to see the the Liberty wreck in Tulamben, the reefs in Amed and Candidasa + mantas in Manta Point. They are very professionnal and nice. They took care of the transport + food. For sure I will come back to dive with you next time. Hug
