I've patronized a few dive shops here and this is my second review submitted to TA. The two ops for which I took the time for a write-up are very good and especially good at certain aspects of a dive excursion. That said: Macro is a great all-around dive shop, our experience.

And here is the *especially good*: Besides being operated by expert scuba managers and guides, stocking good equipment and staffing a friendly English-fluent crew, these guys really know how to recon out the more exotic specimens. Just no way we would have seen what we saw without our local scuba guide pointing it out. So if you are setup for photography and are looking for the more elusive, more exotic and better camouflaged species, dropping by the easy-to-find Macro shop may be a good Step 1...

Oh, we also did some freediving with them and saw some killer sites (and sights). So scuba, freedive and snorkel, seems like Macro has it covered in Pemu.

This is our second visit to Permuteran, last visit was August 2010 and dived with another Dive Centre based on the beach, they used a boat from the shore and the trip to the Menjangan Islands was a lengthy trip and with rough seas an uncomfortable crossing. So diving with Macro Bali Dive Centre this time based on the main road was a better way as they transported us by mini bus and to a small sheltered harbour with toilet and cafe and a very short crossing in calm waters to the islands. Diving was great healthy reefs, soft corals, huge fans and lots of fish and creatures. All the gear supplied to customers was great quality and all worked with no leaks or malfunctions, was clean and stored in a nice aired area. The departure times were spot on, so no waiting around to get your day started and the return was the same time each day, so afternoon activities with our friends were kept to schedule. On arrival to Permuteran l had a head cold and hence a sines blockage so the centre gave me a personal dive guide to be with me on my very slow descends a couple dive days later  it cleared . The Dive Centre, Guides and staff were very professional but still fun to be with, the pricing was cheaper than other bigger centres we checked out and had a much more personal feeling from the first moment we walked in. We stayed at Tirta Sari Bungalows great value, clean, beautiful garden setting, pool, spa centre, restaurant only 2 mins slow walk from Macro Dive Centre.after 6 days ,diving 2 dives a day , 3 days Menjangan  Islands and 3 days local sites it was hard to leave but we'll surely be back for a third visit to Permuteran and we'll be diving at Macro Bali Dive Centre Again and Again .
