Diving in Bali

Bali offers some of the best diving in the world. The variety of sites is truly something to behold. From manta rays in Nusa Penida to Shaun the Sheep nudibranchs in Amed, Bali offers something for every diver.  With such a variety of subjects, it's often confusing to know where and when to dive. We aim to make the decision of when and where to go easy for you. Are you a macro enthusiast who doesn't care for coral reefs? Or perhaps you are a wreck enthusiast who doesn't like macro photography?  Let us know what your interests are and we will aim to create a perfect itinerary.
