Fun Dives

FUN DIVES

Bali’s underwater world provides everything divers dream of. At our house reefs in PADANG BAI, you find a nice wall, colourful coral bummies inhabited by thousands of tropical reef fish, as well as great muck diving. Sea turtles and reef sharks are regularly seen and the usually good visibilty and gentle currents make the Padang Bai area easy to dive. 

The more challenging dive sites MIMPANG, TEPEKONG, BIAHA and CRYSTAL BAY, are the best sites to spot sharks and  especially from July to November, you even have the chance to encounter the giant sunfish also known as Mola-Mola.

Manta2

One of the diving highlights is MANTA POINT, where the majestic Manta rays are attracted all year long by the several cleaning stations. Nobody should miss the chance to see them “flying” their rounds, while waiting for their turn to get their Spa treatment.

Wreck enthusiasts are not left behind, too, as the world’s famous ‘USAT LIBERTY’ wreck lies near the shore of TULAMBEN. Fully covered in coral and anemones, it’s home to thousands of colourful fish and fascinates new divers as well as dive veterans.
