Why choose Bali?


Bali has been rated as the number one island to visit in Asia for three years running by Trip Advisor – for good reasons. Not only will you experience phenomenal diving but there are a host of other activities and experiences available in Bali. Have you tried white water rafting? Or ATV riding through the jungle? Or trekking a volcano? These are all possible in Bali! If you prefer more relaxed options to try out during your free time, Bali is an island which is famous for its white sand beaches, spiritual people and colourful ceremonies are a part of daily life here. In our home town of Sanur there are numerous yoga studios, spas and chilled out beachside cafes.

Of course, most of your time will be spent diving, diving and diving! And at Diving Indo we are ideally located to access all of Bali’s best dive sites. Imagine diving with manta and mola at Nusa Penida one day and then exploring the USAT Liberty WWII shipwreck the next! It doesn’t get much better than this. Padang Bai is just a one hour journey away and the rugged pinnacles of Tepekong and Mimpang offer shark sightings, seasonal mola and exhilarating currents.

The wide range of diving conditions and topographies for which Bali is famous are what also makes it the number one destination for professional dive training in Asia. For comprehensive Divemaster Training, Bali has it all.
