Diving Bali with Bali Scuba

With some of the most diverse macro underwater photography dive sites in Indonesia, classic Indonesian muck diving, and great wide-angle underwater picture and underwater video opportunities, it's no wonder the best underwater photographers visiting Indonesia always dive Bali. Whether you are just starting out in underwater photography, or are already an experienced marine photographer, our specialist underwater photography guides can help you achieve your goals in Bali.

For underwater pictures or underwater video of big pelagics in Bali, Manta, and Oceanic Sunfish/ Mambo (Mola mola) then join us for speedboat diving in Nusa Penida.

For macro underwater photography in Bali, Tulamben is the most well-known dive site. Those with more time can also dive 'Secret Bay', Seraya, Pemuteran and PJ dive sites, all of which offer classic muck diving with a wide variety of underwater critters.
