Scuba Diving in Bali – A dream Come True!
When most people think about Scuba Diving they think of crystal clear water, amazing fish species hiding in the blue, feeling weightless and being neutral buoyant, following the current wherever it takes and discover shipwrecks. Now Bali has all of it, a matter of fact, the Island doesn’t just have it, it has World Class diving on all aspects – And it’s quite affordable compared to other tourists destinations
This is a simple guide on how to approach the Scuba Diving in Bali and have an awesome experience.
One – Choose a reputable and trusted Diving Center
This is very crucial! In Bali amongst other tourist destinations some diving centers cut corners, this is during open water courses, during diving and generally how they operate. You should choose a trusted 5-Star agency focusing on you and your experience to be one for the memory books. Use the Padi website to find the best centers suitable for you, and pay the extra 10 Dollars to receive top service.
Two – Enjoy the surroundings and listen to your instructors
The best way to have a good experience is to listen to your Dive Master or Instructor during diving and in the preparation for diving. With local knowledge of the surroundings and diving spots you will have a fantastic experience and see new fish and species you most likely haven’t seen before. Bali is a true Diving Paradise but you better have eyes and ears open – Suddenly a Mola-Mola (Sunfish), Manta Rays or Reef Sharks can pop up in front of you as the photo below
Three – Always be prepared
As a diver you need to be prepared for the unknown, as most in life unexpected things can happen and the situation can get tricky. Some places in Bali you need to be an experienced diver for example in Nusa Penida or Nusa Lembongan. These two island you dive from the boat and there can sometimes be strong currents and sometimes it can get to some very drifting speeds so always dive in groups and take care of each other. When diving with a reputable diving center you will be well prepared for the next dive and can basically visualize how the dive will be from beginning to end.
Four – Have fun and share the experience!
Diving is a very serious sport and while it can have consequences its very seldom there are incidents – so remember to share your experience with friends, families and the World Wide Web! As mention on number One divers and people are always looking for genuine reviews and appreciate your input. As recent adventurous diver Maria said to Bali Ideas ‘’Crystal Bay in Nusa Ceningan Island is one of my best diving experiences, diving with the Mola-Mola has given me a new perspective for diving and I can’t wait to get back into the water’’
