Diving Bali with Bali Scuba

US$139 for 2 dives  (plus $25 for dive equipment rental if required)

Where: Pemuteran is three hours by road from Sanur, and just 20 mins. drive to the departure point for boats heading to Menjangan Island.

Highlights: Reef diving with good chances of macro encounters. Great place for a night dive.

Conditions: Some boat dives, some shore dives. Usually no strong currents but waves can get stronger in the wet and windy season January to March.



Difficulty: 1

Close Encounters offers a wide variety of hard and soft corals. Schooling Snapper, Trevally and Batfish are amongst the many fish species regularly seen here. Good macro opportunities with Pipefish and Nudibranchs. Frogfish and Crocodile fish are also sighted here.


Difficulty: 1

Having recovered from damage caused in 1997, Napoleon Reef again displays good corals and large numbers of reef fish. Rays and Cuttlefish are often seen here, and as with Close Encounters (above) a variety of macro surprises await the eagle-eyed. Napoleon Reef is the most convenient site to dive at night in Pemuteran.


Difficulty: 1

There is yet another macro site in North Bali (in addition to Secret Bay and Seraya). This one is in Pemuteran itself, and is another site to dive for Mimic Octopus opportunities. Nudibranch, Frogfish and the usual suspects.
