I began diving a few months ago and have gone on dives and done training with a few companies around Bali and Gili T. I wanted to continue training and consider myself very lucky to have come across Nico. The knowledge of Nico along with the other instructors and guides is fantastic.I received excellent instruction over 5 specialties and continued with wonderful additional fun dives. All the provided equipment was first rate. Nico knows where and when to dive different sites. In the off season we found Mola Mola, mantas and more. I'm just waiting for more time off to be able to return to Bali and dive with Nico and the crew.
6 days of fantastic diving over a variety of dive sites nico put together a dive package that showed us a bit of everything reefs wrecks shore dives boat dives we did it all. The highlights were the sharks mantas octopus cuttlefish and turtles as a guide he is excellent I personally feel we got the best out of every dive thanks to nico. but there is more to a dive centre than just the diving the communication was excellent from the beginning the drivers punctual for pick up and everyone was friendly. Good people good food great diving
We did the snorkelling trip to Nusa Penida. We saw lots of tropical fish and some turtles and were really well looked after by the Nico Dives Cool team. Lunch was provided and they made me a special nut free meal which was great. Our snorkelling guide also took some great photos and videos for us. Would 100% recommend.
Cannot recommend Nico and his team more. It was a fantastic day of snorkelling, the fish and coral are beautiful and plentiful, the day was made more fantastic by the sheer number of manta rays we got to see.. which was about 10, it was hard to count there were so many We were a group of 7 friends between 30 and 40 years of age, with a variety of skill and confidence levels. Nico and his team catered for all of us and our individual needs. We didnt have to bring a thing, everything was organised for us, including a yummy lunch. Nico even took loads of pics and videos for us at no extra cost. The team were really lovely, and would recommend this to anyone
We did a half-day trip with Nico snorkeling around Nusa Penida in a small group. Pick-up from our hotel in Legian was arranged. We booked via email/WhatsApp, Sara was super helpful and quick to respond. Snorkel stop 1 was at SD POINT where we saw a sea turtle and a big Napoleon wrasse! Second snorkel stop was at Manta Point and we saw about 10 manta rays circling. Memorable event for sure. Nico was taking photos and videos which we exchanged after the trip. Nico is a great, knowledgable guy ensuring everyone is safe and comfortable. He explained about the location and the sea life - also being very clear about do's and dont's when snorkeling here to make sure we do not intrude/stress the animals. All needed equipment is provided incl. wetsuits, masks, snorkels, drinks, lunch, towel and sea sick pills (needed!). All you need to bring is a swim suit, sun screen and a smile! Hands-down 100% recommendable!
