Day 1: Accommodation - Padang bai

The furthest site Jepun offers a very shallow and colorful reef with the possibility to see all sorts of incredible fish including the entire ‘Nemo’ cast, parrot fish, octopus, trumpet fish and many more. The more adventurous may swim out to the deeper parts with the hope of catching a glimpse of a timid reef shark or barracuda. Blue lagoon, Bias Tuggal and Temple offer a different reef with scattered coral bommies and the occasional turtle, big ray or squid pod.

Nico Dives Cool

PADI IDC staff instructor & SSI Instructor Trainer, Nico, is the owner of the school. He is an experienced and highly qualified diving instructor. He built his experience by travelling around the world while working as an instructor in Mexico, Utila, Philippines, Thailand, Kanawa Island, as well as a diving liveaboard Manager in the Philippines and Komodo. During his journey, he noticed various ways to manage dive centres and scuba education. The “industry” methods of some centres left him feeling obvious gaps. Henceforth, Nico decided to open his own dive centre to offer something different, something far away from this big diving industry.

An amazing experience for our introduction to diving We went to Nico's dive school (Nico Dives Cool) for our introduction to diving and had an amazing time. He was very patient, had clear explanation and we felt very safe. He takes all the time you need and doesn't rush you so you can do things in your own pace. Thanks to Nico we had an amazing first diving experience! We will definitely dive again in the future, and if on Bali, we would totally go to Nico again. We would recommend Nico Dives Cool to everyone!

What a great experience my time with Nico Dives Cool was! 3 days of sun, perfect water conditions, support and laughs all made my time achieving my Open Water Diver licence something to definitely write home about. The team were great at taking me through all the steps at a pace best suited to me, while at the same time helping me cope with all the changes happening in the world (COVID-19) while I was so far from home. So not only was a student, but I also felt like part of the Nico family when I needed that most. The last day of my open water diving course saw me almost losing faith in myself and my new found skills however, with the support of the Nico team, I got my groove back on and smashed this goal off my bucket list! I can't recommend the group highly enough, and look forward to diving again with Nico Dives Cool and Bali's beautiful manta rays. Thumbs up from Australia 👍🤙👏

Excellent diving experience My husband and I booked a last minute dive trip and found Nico Dives Cool from the great reviews. Our experience did not disappoint! I’d highly recommend this place to any divers looking for a safe, fun experience. Nico’s driver picked us up from Seminyak, we met Nico at his office for paperwork and equipment, then we departed from Sanur to do 3 dives around Nusa Penida. The dives were all great. Our favorite thing we saw was of course the manta rays but we also saw a black & brown bandit bamboo shark, reef shark, turtles, octopus, and many colorful fish (bat fish, trumpet fish, moray eels, pufferfish, box fish, parrotfish, surgeonfish, angelfish, triggerfish, etc.). We felt safe the whole time. I liked how Nico gave us informative briefings before each dive and we do many equipment checks. Nico took pictures and videos at no additional charge, and uploaded them to our phone before we went back to our hotel. Excellent experience. Thanks Nico!

Great diving, safe approach and personal experience. I visited Bali for 4 days and wanted to take my newly qualified 12 year old daughter diving. We did a lot of research and chose Nico Dives Cool due to the positive reviews on here. We were not disappointed and were very pleased with our choice. Nico was excellent and took the safety and enjoyment of my daughter seriously. Each day we reviewed, altered and adjusted to make the most out of the day and her ability. This wouldn’t have been possible with many of the other Operators we observed who had large ratios between guide and divers. We had just my daughter and myself with a guide and when I wanted a little more challenge I was added to another group of 2 and Nico took my daughter 1 to 1 to make the best for all. It was a great trip and will definitely be returning and using Nico again. Thanks for a great couple of days diving. 👍🏼
