Dive Trip Report

What’s it like to dive the Maldives? We’ve been getting lots of reviews, and frankly, they’ve all been raves.  There’s a reason why a Maldives Scuba Vacation is considered the experience of a lifetime for divers of all experience levels.

Why Dive The Maldives

The waters surrounding the Maldives Islands present a truly unique marine environment. There are hundreds of islands in the Maldives, and the chain is surrounded by thousands of small coral reefs and coral gardens.  The rich waters beyond the coral reefs are a prime feeding ground for manta rays and other large sea life. On shore, you’ll find white sand beaches, beautiful countryside, and friendly people who are happy to see you.


When you dive the Maldives, you share the waters with an amazing bounty of unique sea life. The coral reefs are teeming with life. There are amazing species of coral and sponges, some found nowhere else in the world.  The manta and eagle rays are a favorite of many divers, and who doesn’t love sharing the sea with the mammoth marvel, the whale shark?

The coral is vibrant and breathtaking at every turn. Photographers love to dive the Maldives, as it is almost impossible to get a bad picture. No matter which way you point your lens, there’s going to be something to see!

Drift diving in the Maldives is an exhilarating thrill, and a way to experience the world’s waters totally unlike anything else you’ve ever experienced. Feel the power of the ocean and understand the majesty of this planet in a whole new way. Maldives scuba is truly magical.

Dive in Bali

Bali is one of the most sort out travel destinations in the world, and top island destination. Bali is Indonesia’s most important tourism hot spot and Scuba Diving in Bali is some of the most popular in Indonesia, with both boat and shore based diving provided by hotels, resorts and dive centers around the island. With its Volcanic peaks, blinding green rice paddies, teeming coral reefs, and warmhearted people, Bali is simply too irresistible to miss.


Bali has the pleasure of sitting on one side of the Lombok Strait, and it is here that we have one of the greatest tidal flows on earth, part of the Indonesian Through-flow, responsible for exchanges of water between the Pacific Ocean and Indian Ocean. This is a very nutrient rich area, giving rise to a very vibrant and diverse marine ecosystem.

Bali is home to the world famous Liberty wreck. Torpedoed by the Japanese in 1942, beached in Tulamben and subsequently rolled into the sea by earth tremors from the Gunung Agung eruption in 1963, she is now one of the most easily accessible wreck dives in the World.

Bali is also a regular hangout for the incredible Mola Mola, know by many other names around the world from Sunfish, Moonfish to swimming head. July to September is the time to try and see these oceanic beauties.

Counting Pygmy Seahorses in Amed Bay, spotting the Frog fish on the Jupun, finding yourself face too face with a cuttlefish in Blue Lagoon, join the sharks for a rest in Gili Biaha, be overshadowed by Manta at Manta Point or just watch the view as you drift along in Nusa Penida. Whatever your fancy, Bali has it all.

From our purpose built training pool in Seminyak, ( map ) where we offer free Scuba Try outs, and free scuba tune ups, to our Padang Bay based speed boat, we are able to offer you the best of Bali, under the waves.
