Bali diving

One of the most beautiful islands in the world, Bali is Indonesia's most popular dive travel destination.

To the east of the island lies the Lombok Strait, the first deep water trench directly to the east of the Asian continental shelf. It also means regular visits from large and unusual pelagic fish like the incredible mola, or sunfish. Bali scuba diving isn't simply the holiday 'extra' that some people might imagine.

The waters of this island are surprisingly unheralded. allow yourself to be surprised for you never really know just what you might see in this ever-changing underwater kingdom. Deep drop-offs and steep banks, coral ridges and bommies, one of the most famous wrecks in the world, volcanic outcrops and seagrass beds are all part of the underwater tapestry. Indeed, one of the greatest features of Bali are the incredibly rich and varied dive sites. Experienced divers will enjoy the thrill of the currents around Nusa Penida, beginners will love the simplicity of the locations in Amed and Padang Bai, and photographers will flock to the muck diving sites of Tulamben. Many visitors find the attraction of good shore-based resort diving set against a stunning back drop of huge, magnificent volcanoes and picturesque rice paddy terraces, simply irresistible. All of this combined with the friendliness of the Balinese people, glorious weather, white sandy beaches and recent marine protection measures make Bali an increasingly sought after destination by scuba divers from across the world. The strong currents can also clean the water and create fantastic visibility. Through these channels flows the greatest volume of tidal water on earth, creating some mindblowing diving coditions.

Others enjoy the island's charms and then hop on board a liveaboard cruise departing from Bali. This Pacific Ocean can create some powerful currents and rollercoaster rides that characterise some of the dive sites.
There is something for everyone; Previously the preserve of surfers and beach vacation types, nowadays the island sees an increasing number of tourists hauling dive bags around. With its colourful and diverse marine life, there's enough here to keep you coming back for more.

Menjangan Island -
Starting your AquaMarine Diving - Bali Dive Safari at Menjangan Island (part of West Bali National Park), located just off Bali’s north west point, enables you to experience the island’s first internationally known dive location. Looking back to the mainland during the half-hour local wooden outrigger boat journey, you can see exactly how mountainous Bali actually is – something not visible from south Bali’s more densely populated areas.
Menjangan Island is famous for its coral walls with easy conditions, warm waters and great visibility that can reach 50m+. Due to the white sand and good visibility, there is usually a lot of sunlight to bring out the bright colours of the schooling fishes surrounding you. The walls are covered with a multitude of gorgonian fans, soft corals and sponges. We frequently see batfishes and Big-eyed trevallys, as well as turtles and barracudas. There are only occasional sightings of large pelagic fishes as the island is protected from the cold currents coming in from the open sea.

Puri Jati -
For those who’ve wondered but have yet to try it, and those who adore it – today you will dive Bali’s current muck-diving hotspot! Visibility is 5-25m, and the water warm. A wide, gentle brown sand slope with patches of sea grass and tufts of lavender soft corals hiding many juvenile batfishes and lion fishes, rare fishes, crustaceans, cephalopods (including Wonderpus, Blue-ring and Mimic octopus), and fascinating sand dwellers including unusual Mantis shrimps, Fingered dragonets, various ghost pipefishes, seahorses, sea moths, demon stingers, Cockatoo flounders, Veiled melibe nudibranchs, soft coral cowries, stargazers, the list goes on…
If conditions are unfavorable for Puri Jati, you will dive at Secret Bay, Bali’s first and so best-known muck location. 2km wide, 3-12m deep; the only bay off the narrow Bali Strait (where currents can reach 7 knots), it acts as a large catch-tank for many larval and juvenile fish, and rare marine species. The water is cold; the fish fat and healthy! Unusual nudibranchs, Banggai cardinal fish, gobies, Ambon scorpion fish, file fish, puffers, dragonets, pipe fish, juvenile Batavia batfish, Mimic octopus, Hippocampus kuda and many other organisms. Elsewhere juveniles hide to avoid predators, but here in Gilimanuk there are very few large fish, so juveniles have no need to hide. The bottom is fine sand with patches of algae and sea grass, some branches, coconuts (housing for octopodes!), cans, etc.

Diving on day 6 & 7
Tulamben Bay -
The small village of Tulamben (Bali’s most famous diving area) is where you are most likely to meet internationally recognized underwater photographers. Being on Bali’s northeast coast, the bay receives very plankton-rich waters from the major ocean current that moves from the Pacific to the Indian Ocean. This, coupled with the fact that the three main dive sites provide totally different physical environments, means Tulamben contains a stunningly diverse underwater ecosystem.  World-famous for the 120m USAT Liberty shipwreck (possibly the world’s easiest wreck dive); The Drop-off/Wall, an old lava flow from Mount Agung, at the opposite end of the bay from the Wreck (about a 10 minute walk between the two sites), and the Coral Garden which is a shallow reef running along the middle section of Tulamben beach. Tulamben Bay offers incredible shore-diving with very easy conditions - perfect for divers of all levels.  
You will see just about everything in any Indo-Pacific Reef Guide book when you dive in Tulamben Bay. The resident marine life includes a huge school of Big-eyed trevallys, Leaf scorpion fishes, Bumphead parrotfishes, Pygmy seahorses, minute angler fishes, neon nudibranches, ghost pipefishes, shrimp/goby sets, through to garden eels and multi-colored clouds of anthias and damsels and schools of sweetlips, batfishes, fusiliers and butterfly fishes. The variety is amazing. Then there are the invertebrates, the hard and soft corals, black corals, sponges with crinoids, sea fans and tunicates.  
The beach is fist-sized black volcanic rocks that become sand in the shallows which, along with the plankton in the water, accounts for the relatively low visibility (12-25m). The black sand brings out the colors of the corals, gorgonians, fishes and other marine life – great for uw photography.  As Tulamben Bay provides shore-diving and rarely has currents, we are able to offer more dives per day than at other sites on this safari – in addition to which, you will get to experience for yourself Tulamben’s magical night-diving.

Visibility & and when to go:
The dive season is year round in Bali although conditions do vary from time to time and location to location. December to March is rainy season (although most days it doesn't rain) and there are fewer scuba divers around. However, visibility is sometimes a little reduced around the north and west of the island. The best conditions to dive in Tulamben can be found between early April to July, October and November. It is dry season during these months and visibility can reach a spectacular 40 metres at this time of year. The diving around Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Penida is good all year round and visibility is generally 20-30 metres. Sunfish, sharks and other large pelagics are best spotted between June and September which is also the time when seas might be both disturbed and enriched by the monsoon winds. The best time to see mantas is from April until June, although they are present all year round.
Water Temperature:
usually 25-26°C except during mola mola season when it can drop to the low 20's.
Weather conditions: The dry season is between the months of April and October, with the coolest months of May, June and July having an average temperature of 28°C. Rainy season is between November and March, with sudden downpours interrupted by periods of sunshine. Tourist High Season is July and August for Europeans and Americans, and December and January for many vacationing Australians.
Currents: at some dive sites you can experience strong currents
