Bali is one of the best places in Indonesia to join a PADI diving course. The dive centres that operate on the island are professional and the teachers are trained to an international standard. Bali also has a lot of great dive spots. If you go diving in Bali you can see the famous Mola Mola, white tipped reef sharks and even do wreck dives. The best bit though is the price. The competition for clients means you can do a PADI certified course really cheaply.

If you’re interested in taking a diving course in Bali and you want to choose a reliable company I can help. I’ve teamed up with a PADI dive center to offer you all inclusive professional diving courses in Bali taught by internationally certified instructors. Let’s dive right in.
