About Us

 

Diving in Bali with Diving Indo is a 5* PADI resort.A family company, founded and managed jointly by the Polish – Indonesian marriage of Mariusz and Eunice. The history of our Sanur dive shop starts at the beginning of 2005 when Mariusz after completing his contract in the Maldives arrived for a two week holiday in Indonesia on the island of Bali. Fate had it that 30 minutes after landing at the reception at the Four Seasons met his now wife, Eunice.
Diving Indo was founded and registered in 2006, when we decided to take advantage of the experience we had gained in managing and operating diving centers in the east of Indonesia on the islands of Ambon and Banda.

The Diving Indo Sanur dive shop is the town of Sanur, which for logistical reasons is the ideal place being only 30 minutes by speedboat from one of Bali’s top scuba diving areas, Nusa Penida.

 

Diving Indo organizes diving around Bali as well as in other regions of Indonesia. The most popular trips are to Komodo, Raja Ampat, and Sulawesi but also the mysterious spice islands region: Maluku and Banda archipelago.

 

Diving Indo is a PADI 5* dive resort which carries the full range of scuba diving courses from beginner courses to dive master in the following languages: Polish, English, Russian, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Serbian, Croatian , Indonesian.
Our Sanur dive shop has three speed boats with outboard boat engines and four comfortable air-conditioned buses that shuttle our guests from hotels and villas to the dive sites in every region of Bali. 30 sets of scubapro equipment which are renewed every two years and more than 100 tanks.

About Us Diving Indo Mario Bali

Mariusz (Mario)

Mariusz is the founder and owner of Diving-Indo.  He trained as an ichthyologist and PADI diving instructor from 1998. Working within tourism and the diving industry since 1990 when he was president of the Academic Diving Club “Skorpena” at the ART in Olsztyn – his hometown. During his studies he organized water works, training camps and CMAS diving trips. The biggest challenge was a trip by car to Egypt with 1995 year. 8000km, dozens of borders, bribes, good dives and freedom of choice meant that he could not find in the “office”. But 2002 he knuckled down to the corporate life until an impulse visit to Sipidan, Malaysia. From this moment as he says, life began anew for him: working on the ship safari in Egypt and Sudan, Croatia, a year in the Maldives in one of the most expensive hotels, and finally Bali. It was planned as a 2-3 week vacation from which he never returned. Over the years as a manager leading dive centers on the islands of Ambon and Banda in Maluku archipelago, where he was involved in photography, film and finding new dive sites. He visited almost all famous and interesting dive sites in Indonesia.
In early 2006, he opened a dive center in Bali. His passion is surfing and that is why more often you can find him on the wave rather than under it. According to his wife Eunice surfing Mariusz absorbs about 250 days off a year 🙂 and adds with a smile with an additional 50 days to tennis.

 

He is fluent in Russian, English Indonesian. Number of dives difficult to determine – over 6000
