“Fun fun fun”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

I found Baruna very user friendly...booking took only a few minutes...Jonathan was waiting for us on our arrival at 11pm. The accommodation was as expected basic and clean. In the morning we had our own private dives with Komang. Putu was very efficient in preparing our gear, which is practically brand new. Everything was so easy and straightforward. The dives at the wreck and the wall in Tulmaben were fun. We were very lucky to be joined by a grey shark who hadn't been sighted in a while. Komang took great pictures which are a great souvenir for us! Thank you!

Thank you very much for visiting with us and allowing us to show you the underwater world! We love teaching enthusiastic students and watching their eyes widen at the wonders the underwater realm has hidden beneath its surface. Nico in particular is an underwater photographer enthusiast and he always looks forward to the opportunity to share his passion. Thanks again and keep on diving!

“Amazing!”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

Had a total of 4 dives on 2 days with Komang of the dive centre. He is an amazing photographer who took really good pictures of us the divers and pictures of the fish and corals! We were given the photos at the end and they are the record of some of our very nice memory of the dives.

He is of course also a very good DM. My partner and I were inexperienced open water divers and we were being well taken care of - both in and out of the water. As we planned our dives, Komang highly recommended us to wake up really early to dive the wreck early because there will be some sleeping bumphead parrotfish. We got into the water at 6am- and we really saw them and there were many of them! We were then sent back to our accommodation to have breakfast and then we were picked up again for another dive. Everything went smooth!

The dive equipments of the dive centre were all in very good conditions and are of good qualities- even the goggles, the boots and the fins.

I hope that I could dive again with them shortly in the future!

“Amazing as always”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

This is my second time diving with Baruna. As always, the warm and great hospitality, professionalism and their enthusiasm create the comfortable feeling under the water and homey when u are up in the surface. i stayed in their accomodation behind their dive shop, budget accomodation, always clean, small nice room, quiet relaxing place to read book in the evening and close to all restaurant in the area. Komang as always is my man under the water. Always patient with smile on his face. I took underwater photography course with Nico, which is a great photographer. The course went pretty well, and Nico also very patient with a horrible student like me haha!! My underwater pics now better than ever. Big thanks to Jonatan and all the staff, wayan,putu and nengah for making my holiday colorfull. i will always recommend this place to all friends who wants to explore the underwater of amed and tulamben. will love to see and dive with u guys again in the future.
