What to Expect When Diving in Sanur (Close to Our Home)

Before visiting Bali, you might expect to travel far from the International Airport to places like Nusa Penida, Padang Bai, Amed, Tulamben, and Menjangan to truly enjoy the popular diving spots in Bali.

However, you will find that the eastern coastline of Sanur has its fair share of beautiful underwater features for your diving enjoyment.

In fact, Blue Season Bali is located at Jl. Danau Poso, Gg. Wana Sari, Sanur so if you happen to stay in Denpasar, Canggu, Kuta or Jimbaran, we are only half an hour’s drive away!

Dive sites in Sanur

The three known dive sites in Sanur are called Sanur Bay, Penjor Reef, and Jeladi Wilis.

Sanur Bay is perfect for beginner divers. Our PADI Open Water course takes place here on the first day, before traveling north to the more famous dive sites on the island. Sanur’s water is clear for most of the time, and the underwater wildlife that it offers is comparable to many other dive sites in the North.

You can expect nudibranchs, clownfish, reef fish, scorpion fish, stingrays, lionfish, octopuses and even white tip sharks in all the dive sites in Sanur.

Penjor Reef is populated with coral reefs that follow the gently sloping contour of the seafloor. The corals are all healthy and mature, long populated by various species of sea critters. The perfect time to visit Penjor Reef is from April to November, that is, during the dry season.

Jeladi Wilis also has a gentle slope from about three meters to twenty meters. It might be challenging for beginner divers as the currents here can be strong. However, if you are a master of drift diving, you may find the currents in Jeladi Wilis a gift of nature.

This site is home to many nocturnal wildlife as well, which makes Jeladi Wilis an excellent site for night dives.

On-land services

While diving is a rewarding activity, it can also be an exhausting one. Blue Season Bali ensures that our guests are given as much convenience as we can so that they are mentally and physically prepared to enter the underwater world.
