What better place to learn the basics of scuba diving in the idyllic waters of Bali! There are an entrancing variety of marine life in this area just waiting to be uncovered. This includes a collection of resident Blue-spotted rays and a large Napoleon wrasse through to nudibranchs of all shapes, sizes and colours and surprising discoveries of scorpionfish, lionfish and moray eels.

Aqua Marine

The focus at AquaMarine is to provide both high-quality service and the best possible diving for guests, offering programs to suit each diver’s interests, experience, and preferences. Attention to detail is a hallmark of the AquaMarine experience. Although AquaMarine has grown over the years, this has never been at the expense of personalized service. AquaMarine was founded by Annabel in 1999 and is the only British owner-operated dive center in Bali. Annabel’s concept was to plan dive trips as she would want arrangements made for her were she a diver visiting Bali, and this philosophy of individual attention continues today.

woot woot! scuba diving is great! Booked with amd online for mola mola special. Didn’t take the hotel package as you have to transfer in advance to secure the booking. Transfers was smooth and efficient and comfortable seating (2-4 hours from denpasar to the boat site depending on traffic and where everyone booked their hotels!) Can have a quick fresh cold fresh water rinse before heading back once off the boat. Huge Huge HUGE thanks to my divemaster Wilan for being so professional. Perfect trim underwater, thorough dive briefings, always ready to assist & wonderful friendly smile. Wet suit ended up being too tight, but Wilan was prepared with another one for the next dive. Another group didn’t have the right size booties, however Wilan was also prepared and could offer them help too!!! ***** Five Star Service! ***** request your professional dive master wooo! ;) Scuba diving was way more fun with a great guide. Lunch was on the boat with 3 consecutive dives in nusa penida. I appreciated that they use reusable plastic containers for the lunches! good to save our ocean from plastic waste!

Really incredible experience. Such insane reefs and they really know Nusa Penida well. I had an epic Nusa day trip along with a Tulamben one. The dive masters are extremely well equipped and it felt like a world class experience. Great value for money, too- picked me up all the way from Canggu to spend 8 hours in the car driving to Tulamben and back!

Fantastic experience We booked 3 days of diving / snorkeling with Aqua Marine Diving, I'm the diver and my wife is the snorkeler. My wife will write her own review, if she could give more than 5* she would. From the point of first email contact , with Anna, to the final goodbye at the drop off at our resort, everything was superb, well organised and very welcoming. I chose to do three dives each day and had two different guides (Instructors or DMs), both were excellent spotters! The stated max ratio was 1:4, however I was fortunate in that the max was 1:3 on one dive and less on the rest. The coral seemed more colourful than elsewhere altho' there is still a lot of dead coral however that is outside of AMDs control! There were also all the usual suspects as far as fish were concerned, but the the adults seemed a bit larger and there were plenty of minuscule fish in the nurseries, in the shallow coral. The crowning glory was Manta Point. Since booking the holiday I'd been hoping to see mantas. When discussing it with the DMs they said that we might be lucky and that 8 had been spotted the week before. So yesterday we set off for Nusa Penida with everything crossed. We rolled in, found the cleaning station and waited, for all of two minutes. For the next 52 mins of the dive we were surrounded by at least 15 mantas, we stopped counting! Magical! If / when we return to Bali I will not need to research dive companies, there can be no better than AMD. Thank you.

great service in stressful time we booked again a dive trip with Aquamarine to Bali and Flores, we already used Aquamarine for several trips in Indonesia and always very satisfied with their service. Unfortunately we faced the problems with the Corona virus all over the world, so we decide to cancel the part to Flores and stay in Bali. situation was getting worse every day so we decide to go home as soon as possible. We went to the office of Aquamarine and they have been more than just helpful , they rebooked some hotels and canceled some others. we had contact every day and finally we could leave Bali. These are the periods that you find out if you have the right travel agent . We are very very satisfied by the efforts Aquamarine did for us . I can only recommend them for all your trips to Indonesia Eric Van Laarhoven

Open water certification I have spent 3 days for the Padi open water certification and it was a very great experience. The staff was very well committed prior in the contacts linked to the theoritical part and during the practice. The dive master was very nice and very experienced. If you are interested in diving in Bali, you should definitely contact Aqua marine diving !
