About Indonesia

This up-and-coming Asian giant is known for its dive spots and great dive instructors to match the demand for excellent diving, and it’s a host to an equally large population of wildlife, which brings scuba enthusiasts from all over the world. Classified as one of the most biodiverse countries on Earth, Indonesia is a diver’s paradise waiting to be discovered. When it’s not busy being an economic powerhouse, it’s helping people get back in touch with the marine habitats that surround it. The best part is that there are always clear waters somewhere, divers can go diving year-round even though there is a recommended “dive season.”

Health and Safety

Malaria is common in the area and general precautions should be taken. It’s also wise to defend yourself from hepatitis and Dengue fever. Stomach problems should be addressed immediately. For dive sites, specifically, heed local warnings.

Be Aware

Indonesia is a mass of vibrant islands. There’s a lot to choose from, and scuba diving in the area can be a life-enriching experience. Travel around the country is so accessible that you could have multiple dive experiences that are vastly different from each other in just a few days of scuba. Enjoy!

Costs

The largest banknote of Indonesia is worth the equivalent of $10USD. That’s a good place to start when estimating costs. A dive tour will run more than that, of course, but you’re going to pay less than in a lot of the world.

Discover Scuba Diving
The Discover Scuba Diving Course takes one day and includes a brief theoretical course (all you need to know before your first dive), a practical course (basic skills to practice in a pool or in shallow water) and 2 dives for beginner (max 12 meters depth) in the Ocean with your diving instructor. In the scoop of a Discover Scuba Diving Course, we do the dives in Padang Bai or Tulamben, in calm water, very convenient for beginners. Tulamben is shore diving, we dive there directly from the beach, on the beautiful Coral Garden and the famous Liberty Wreck dive's site (a must-do in Bali!). Tulamben is 2:00 drive from Sanur but it's a beautiful road, with Ocean View almost all the way, Ricefields and Volcano at the end. The water is usually calm, and the sand is black (volcanic). The Liberty Wreck is a ship of 120 meters long covered of life, and one of the most reputed dive site in Bali. The sea life there is incredibly rich. On the way back from Tulamben Nico Dives Cool would be happy to offer you the visit of the beautiful Waterpalace of Tirtagangga. Tirta Gangga - means 'water of the Ganges'. This sacred water palace was built in the early twentieth century by the last king of Karangasem. It boasts many decorative ponds and fountains, lush plant life and natural bathing pools. We especially like this place for her soothing atmosphere. Click on the link below to watch a short video of one diving day in Tulamben : https://youtu.be/bq7rRofzAEA Padang Bai is located at 45 minutes from Sanur. We dive in Padang Bai from a jukung, a small fisherman boat in wood, on the beautiful Blue Lagoon (one of the bluest water of Bali) and the Jepun (little wreck). About the marine life : hundreds of species, both large and small, can be observed in most of the spots: Oriental sweet lips, moray eels, many species of clownfish and anemone fish, napoleon wrasses, trevallies, jackfish, dogtooth tunas, king mackerels, crocodile fish, lionfish, octopus, pharaoh cuttlefish and green turtles, just name it! You will enjoy a large variety of hard and soft corals and various types of gorgonians. On the way back from Padang Bai, Nico Dives Cool would be happy to offer you a visit of the Goa Lawah Temple.
