It's no wonder that Bali is the 'Island of Gods' - with its volcanoes, rice fields, black and white sand beaches, cliffs, and temples there is a lot to see on land. But its underwater world is fantastic too! During these 10 days, you will discover the best sites of Bali and an extraordinary variety of marine life: mantas and mola mola in Nusa Penida, the Liberty Wreck in Tulamben, colorful corals in Amed, critters in Padang Bai, and sharks in Gili Tepekong. After diving, relax in the pool of your brand new hotel or chill in the nearby cafes and restaurants.
The dive center is a Project AWARE Dive Center as well as being Green Fins certified. The team conducts regular underwater cleanups. They use reusable bottles and lunch boxes, and all waste is separated for recycling. They also work with the Ocean Sunfish Project and the Coral Triangle Center.
For advanced divers. If you are not yet advanced, you can take the course once there - just ask us! Non-divers have a lot of options as well: visiting villages, taking cooking classes, enjoying massages, yoga courses, surfing (the waves are very good!), cycling through rice fields, trekking on volcanoes, exploring temples... you can do it all in Bali!
