Arranged a diving course just few weeks before. My instructor was Bli Gede, a very friendly and understanding teacher, and I was the only student so it was a very good 1-on-1. Theory class was conducted at YOS base while the pool session was conducted at Benoa Bay (pool was clean and sizable for training). Later we continued for first dive in Benoa Bay just around the Sea Walker site. A bit skeptical, but the underwater was surprisingly above my expectation with some interesting sea creatures (including a moray eel and a super lazy fish - not sure what the name is, locals call it Ikan Katak). Had planned to do the final open water in Tulamben, but got cancelled due to Gunung Agung situation (Tulamben is within the no-entry area). So, we moved to Nusa Dua site. Saw shipwreck and amazingly saw a massive dugong there!!! Very very lucky I was. Also saw massive lobsters, a blue spotted stingray, a gigantic grouper, and many more! Got my open water license and really enjoyed the sessions. Thanks YOS Dive Bali!

Before coming to Bali I emailed several PADI dive shops to start making plans for the trip. Ita, responded from YOS and was so helpful and quick to reply and answer all my questions it wasn't a question that we were going to use YOS dive during our 2 month stay in Bali.
We're now here and they've done the dive cert classes for my 10 and 12 year old daughter and did an excellent job. Gede was there in structor and has an excellent ability to work with kids. His english is good and he explains the difficult dive concepts in a way they could understand. He and the rest of the staff were also super patient with my 10 year old who had some pretty strong fears of the deep, open ocean water.
In addition to a great staff, YOS dive has a nice facility and good, well maintained gear. They were also super helpful in ensuring we got picked up and dropped off at our Airbnb house and made sure everyone has food during the middle of a long dive day.
I can't recommend them highly enough.

I had made my diving license 6 years earlier at the same place. Their care throughout the entire trip was great. I had a personal supervisor for all the dives and he made sure that I have a great experience and see everything possible. I felt secure at all times. Can only recommend the place

We did 2 dives at the Palau menangan island with yos dive. It has been 2 years since our last dive so we needed a refresh. Our dive master was very thoughtful and took it slow with a great explanation. Both dives were nice and we saw a lot. Would definitely recommend this dive! Thanks to Kadek we had a great morning/afternoon.

We were here to get our open water lisence, got a promo form Deep Sea Extreme expo in Jakarta last April. We were all the newbie here, fortunately we met Bli Made as our instructure and Mas Adi as a Dive Master. They were great and so patient while teaching us in class, pool or during practise in ocean. Thank you!

The staff was friendly, they gave us free pick up transfer from/to hotel. They feed us with delicious meals for our lunch, as requested by us also. The most important is, they gave us the facilities and the hospitalities as same as others guest eventho we got the discount promo. It was so amazing to meet the humble people like them, eventho we were so reckless :))

Keep the good job guys!
