  1. Wreck, Wreck, Wreck!

Did you know that Bali actually has five different wrecks around its island shores? The world famous USAT Liberty Wreck is rated as one of the best wreck dives in the world. Not only is it one of Bali’s best dive sites, but it can be visited by anyone – from a one day dive experience to a PADI Open Water Course and all the way up to our Master Scuba Diver Trainer programs.

  1. The sand is a completely different colour depending on where you go

Down here in South Bali around the Islands of Nusa Penida, as well as Sanur and also in Padang Bai we have beautiful white sand, which makes the coral bright and colourful! Up in Tulamben and Amed, the sand is black which creates a beautiful back drop to the colourful reefs and the USAT Liberty Wreck.

  1. We have Mola Mola from July – October every year

Bali is one of the few places in the world where you can dive with Mola Mola. These giants grace our waters during the colder months of July – October. Also known as Oceanic Sunfish, the Mola Mola are an incredible sight to see. They are usually found around the waters of Nusa Pendia, as well as in Candidasa. We have created a Bali safari package specifically dedicated to finding Mola Mola – you can have a look at that here.

  1. We have Manta Rays ALL YEAR ROUND!

There are two common Manta Ray cleaning stations around Nusa Penida – one is called Manta Point and the other Manta Bay. If you are really lucky, you can see Mola Mola and Manta Rays at Manta Point! We see these gentle giants all year round.

  1. The Macro diving here is beautiful

Bali has some of the best macro dive sites in the world. The Tulamben area is well renowned for its wide range of marine life – from Frog Fish, to Nudibranch to various Crabs, Shrimps, Pipe Fish and the Pygmy Sea Horse– Bali waters really do have it all. Padang Bai is also home to many of your favourite macro critters. Further north in the area of Pemuteran you can also find the likes of the mimic octopus.
