Our experience with Bali Diving Academy was absolutely wonderful. As a first time diver, I was a bit nervous about the whole adventure, but Karin and her amazing team made me feel very comfortable and definitely transmitted their passion for diving.

Edi, our diving instructor, was an excellent guide and had a great energy ! He was reassuring, kind and very pedagogical during the short training prior to the dives. The day out to Menjangan was perfectly organized and made me fall in love with diving.

We highly recommend Bali Diving Academy for first time or experienced divers, we will keep an amazing memory of our trip to Menjangan.

And make sure that after your dives you lounge at The Sage, the charming restaurant next to the shop to enjoy some yummy smoothies, wonderful bowls and more than great service !!

Thank you !!!

My brother and I completed our Advanced Open Water PADI dive course with Bali Dive Academy Pemuteran and loved it! Edi was our instructor doing a fantastic job explaining dive concepts and checking in on us during our dives. The equipment was very well maintained and I felt very safe using it. To top it all off the entire atmosphere of the dive shop was lovely, super relaxed and airy. They also have a great outdoor seating area next to a partner cafe that is absolutely scrumptious (they also offer vegan options!).

Overall I highly recommend Bali Dive Academy Pemuteran!

I attended the 3 day freediving course and I loved every second of it!
All of the instructors I met were so warm and welcoming that I felt right at home from the beginning. My instructor Agus was very knowledgeable and patient with me. After the 3 days was over he had taught me to do things I never thought I could learn in such a short time.
Thanks a ton Agus!

Communication and booking was also super simple! I filled in a question form via the website and after that we quickly found a suitable starting date for me and I got sent a link where I could easily pay via credit card.

Overall, I’m very happy with Bali diving academy! And Pemuteran is a beautiful, quiet place that I highly recommend for any diver that wants to get away from the busier sides of Bali.

I just went to Bali to go to Manta Point. Although I clearly told them that I wanted to go to Manta Point before making tje reservation they brought me to a different site without telling me. They just told me when we arrived. The divemaster told me we didn’t go because I was the only customer and it was far and the onwer blamed the weather (when I know another dive site went there that same morning).

I was also the only customer on that day and because I am a woman the divemaster kept throwing me comments like “next time don’t bring your boyfriend just a friend is fine”, “your boyfriend with many woman somewhere, I am a man I know” and so on. It was not pleasant at all. This does not apply to the owner or the rest of the crew.

The guiadance was not very clear either.

I went back to the dive site and I told the owner about not going to manta point and not being informed and he apologized but when I asked for a discount he clearly refused. I would have appreciated to be told beforehand so I would have cancelled/changed the dive center (I know other centers were going there that very same day)

I am very disappointed because the manta point is where there’s a 90% chance of seeing mantas and in that other site boats were constantly coming and the chance was much lower.

We appreciate the time and effort you put into writing the review, however we would like to point out that you didn't dive with Bali Diving Academy Pemuteran and that Manta Point is a dive site in Nusa Penida, not in the northwest of Bali. We asked tripadvisor to correct this but was not able to.

We were very happy to be able to dive in Bali again after the lockdown. We were also pleased to learn that Bali Diving Academy - our favourite dive centre in Pemuteran - has survived the pandemic and is operating again.They still have the same reliable, friendly and helpful diveguides and good quality equipment. They've just moved to a new office on the main street, which is more spacious, have a parking space and a fantastic restaurant next door.
All in all, we had a great diving holiday with Bali Diving Academy in Pemuteran again. We hope the pandemic won't come back and more tourists will come to Bali soon and bring income to dive centres, hotels and restaurants, almost all of which are already open.

As a surprise for my girlfriend's birthday, I enlisted the help of Karin and the wonderful staff @ Bali Dive Academy to see her day through. Attention to detail in briefing, safety first and a welcoming smile met us when we came to the shop and subsequently on the boat the next day. Edi, our guide, was great above and below the surface... At lunch, between dives, it was made-to-order to honour our dietary requirements and even a surprise Birthday cake, complete with song! The guide's advice as far as dive site choices were spot-on and his constant gauge or safety checking while diving was well received!! This was, personally, my second time diving with BDA and certainly won't be the last. Thank you Karin, Edi, even Komang the driver aka amateur photographer ;) I appreciate all you did to make the surprise a success and the experience unforgettable.

We have not been diving for 5 years so we were nervous to get into the water. Fortunately, great care of our instructor Eddy and very helpful manager Karin gave us a fantastic diving experience. We strongly recommend this diving company not only for occasional divers like us but for anybody who is looking for professional and safety first diving experience in Bali. The underwater world in Permuteran and Menjangang island is amazing! Definitely worth a trip to the North when you are visiting Bali.

My girl friend and I initially walked in to Bali Diving Academy, intending to continue diving in Pemuteran, after being disappointed with the service of another dive center during our 3 previous dives.

Gede, who eventually became our guide, welcomed us and was very informative about the packages offered by BDA. He didn't push us to make a dive reservation right away, since we weren't sure about the weather the next day.

The next morning was bright and sunny and so we continued with our plan to do only 1 dive at Pemuteran. Everything was done professionally, and all the staff including the helpers were really nice.

We really enjoyed our first dive that we decided to do another dive before driving back home right after the dives. The dive sites, Napoleon and Close Encounter, were beautiful. We really enjoyed our dives!

The staff were really helpful, they even helped us to pick up our luggages at our hotel lobby and Gede sent me the things that I left unintentionally at the dive center upon leaving with his motorbike (twice... LOL! I am that clumsy haha)

Thank you for your hospitality, great work ethics and professionalism.

My 18 year old daughter, Ellie, are traveling Indonesia for six weeks from the USA. Neither of us had ever attempted scuba diving. However…Ellie loves marine biology, so I mustered up the courage to sign us BOTH up to become scuba certified. It was an intense, structured course which makes for a great learning environment. We were fortunate enough to have an excellent scuba instructor named Edi. Eid’s english is excellent, he knows Scuba well, and he follows all the PADI guidelines. His instructions and expectations are clear, which made me feel I could easily trust him. We enjoyed diving at BioRock, BioWreck, and Napoleon Reed. We saw sea turtles, puffer fish, tiger fish, sea cucumbers, sea slugs, giant clams, an octopus, countless species of reef fish and countless species of coral. Such a lovely experience!!! I highly recommend Bali Diving Academy in Pemuteran!

I did the Open Water 1 course with Karin and it was fantastic. She is really thorough and explains everything really well. When I got nervous on the first dive in the actual sea, she really calmed me down and I was able to complete the dive. She is very attentive, knows the spots off by heart and has excellent knowledge and ability to point out incredible aquatic life. The team are very friendly and helpful and the equipment is in good condition. Highly recommened!
