About Us

 

Diving Indo. World-class diving in Bali.

 

 

 

Diving Indo’s 5-star PADI resort is a friendly, family-run, Sanur dive shop jointly founded by Mariusz and Eunice, its proud Polish-Indonesian owners.

 

 

Diving Indo’s story begins in 2005 when Mariusz, after completing his diving contract in the Maldives, arrived in Bali for a two-week holiday. Fate had it that just 30 minutes after arriving at the Four Seasons, he met – and fell in love with – his wife to be, Eunice (Ike). Diving Indo was founded and registered in 2006 when Mariusz and Ike decided to share their love of Bali’s amazing dive sites with the world.

Mariusz’s extensive career managing and operating diving centres in Ambon and Banda means that Diving Indo offers you the very best in scuba diving. Diving Indo’s recently built dive resort is conveniently located in Sanur, only a 30-minute speedboat ride from one of Bali’s premier scuba-diving areas – the legendary Nusa Penida island.

 

 

Diving Indo offers you a rich menu of diving around Bali as well as in other regions of Indonesia –  Komodo, Raja Ampat, and Sulawesi. We also offer you the opportunity to dive the mysterious Spice Islands: the Maluku and Banda archipelago.

 

 

Diving Indo’s 5-star PADI dive resort offers you a full range of scuba-diving courses – we really have something for everyone – from beginner to dive master. Our professionally accredited dive instructors are multilingual: we speak Polish, English, Russian, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Serbian, Croatian, and Bahasa Indonesia.

 

 

Enjoy being picked up from your hotel or villa in our comfortable, air-conditioned mini-coaches to start your Bali diving adventure. Relax and feel the wind in your hair as Diving Indo’s fleet of Mercury-powered speed/dive-boats whizz you to your dive site (and home again) in comfort and style.

 

 

At Diving Indo, your safety and comfort is our number one priority, that’s why we only use the newest and best dive gear – SCUBAPRO®. All our diving equipment is carefully double checked by our professional staff before you dive, and all our dive gear is renewed every two years.

About Us Diving Indo Mario Bali

Mariusz (Mario)

 

Mariusz is the founder and co-owner of Diving-Indo.

 

 

He trained as an ichthyologist, and his love of the marine world saw him become a PADI diving instructor in 1998. His long experience in the diving industry began in 1990 as the president of the Academic Diving Club (Skorpena) at university in Poland. During his studies, he organised diving trips, training camps, and CMAS diving trips.

 

 

One of his biggest adventures was a camper-van dive trip to Egypt with his buddies in 1995. After 8000km, dozens of borders, bribes, amazing dives, and the freedom of the open road, he was rarely to be found ‘in the office’!

 

 

This changed in 2002 when an impulse visit to Sipidan, Malaysia, saw him land a job on a dive safari touring Egypt, Sudan, and Croatia. He followed this up with a year in the Maldives working as a dive master at one of its most expensive hotels. Finally, he headed to Bali for a quick relaxing holiday, where he met the love of his life – Ike and co-founded Diving Indo with her in 2006.

 

 

Mario also has a wealth of diving experience from managing dive centres in Ambon and Banda on the Maluku archipelago, where he indulged his passion for underwater photography and film and discovering new dive sites off the beaten track. Over his long career in diving, he has been lucky enough to visit almost all of Indonesia’s most famous and interesting dive sites.

 

 

Aside from diving, Mario’s other passion is surfing. More often than not, you can find him on the wave rather than under it. According to his wife, Ike, Mario’s surfing habit means he takes around 250 days off work a year. She adds with a smile, that an additional 50 workdays are also lost to tennis! Mario is fluent in Russian, English, and Bahasa Indonesian. His total number of dives: difficult to determine – but well over 6000 and counting…

Eunice (Ike)

 

An immensely kind spirit, Diving-Indo’s Ike will make you feel right at home when you visit us in delightful Bali.

Ike is a natural multitasker – her incredible organisational skills keep Diving Indo running smoothly.

Ike’s passions are scuba diving (she is a PADI Rescue Diver with over two hundred dives), yoga, salsa dancing, and surfing. She has worked in Japan and at dive centres in Banda and Ambon in Maluku. Currently, she runs Diving Indo with her husband, Mario.

 

 

Ike just loves all animals – her house is a sanctuary for lost or abandoned pets.

Ike is also a language genius – she speaks five Indonesian dialects, English, Japanese, and – increasingly – Polish and Russian too!

About Us Diving Indo Anna Bali

Anna

 

As a child watching Jacques Cousteau videos, Anna dreamed about becoming a diver. Unfortunately, the reality of life meant a career in computer programming, and generally being ‘in the office’.

All this changed in 2001 on a holiday in Egypt. Anna took her first scuba dive and was instantly hooked. She quit her office job and began working as a dive master in Egypt. After several years in Egypt, she headed to Bali where she has worked since 2007.

 

 

Her greatest passion is filming the marvels of the underwater world, especially during Diving Indo’s dive safaris to remote corners of the Indonesian archipelago. Anna speaks Russian, English, and Bahasa Indonesia, and understands Polish.

 

 

Number of dives: over 4000, with over 2500 in Bali and Indonesia.
