Three best Bali dive sites

Here at Bali Scuba we only visit the best Bali dive sites. That’s why we recommend Tulamben, Nusa Penida and Padang Bai. We also offer great discount packages to these most popular scuba locations. The more trips you take, the cheaper it becomes!

All our trips include PADI Divemaster to guide you, door-to-door transfers, lunch and soft drinks, towels and our famed safety-first policy. No hidden extras!

Nitrox divers can enjoy two free Nitrox tanks every trip. It’s a great bonus for Nitrox Certified Divers – and if you are not certified then our staff can bundle this into your program with Bali Scuba.
