You know when a diving concern has been around since 1999 that they are definitely highly ‘current’ savvy! That is 20 odd years of experience! Experience diving walls, wrecks and underwaterscapes which are sometimes extremely challenging, so experience is definitely key! That, and the fact that the guides are able to predict the comings and goings of marine life as it circumnavigates either its own reef, or even the globe.
Say ‘Hi’ to AquaMarine Diving – Bali – PADI 5 Star Dive Resort 6344. With a PADI Green Star diving award, and as Indonesia’s first Project AWARE Go ECO Operator, AMD-B is THE dive concern to go to create your dream dive. They offer tailor-made programs for each diver’s interests, experience and preferences. As a dive centre totally dedicated to diving – of which there are few – AMD-B organize Multi-Day Dive Safaris that can include Tulamben Bay and the 120m Liberty Wreck dive. Here you can snap some amazing macro shots to remember each dive by. We’d recommend you book an underwater camera from them directly if you need one!
AMD-B’s speciality is to ‘build’ your unique itinerary. Looking for Mola Mola in season? They’ll take you to Nusa Penida, which is also good for Manta rays and sharks!
Amed (East Bali) has white sand dives, with Ghost Bay being well-known for its ‘weird muck diving critters’! Their custom-built dive boats, of which there are three, are moored off their favorite dive sites outside Candi Dasa and Padang Bai in East Bali.
Multi-day Dive Safaris are organized with a choice of hotels near the actual sites however their HQ is conveniently located in Seminyak. This way they really do have the finger on the pulse of incoming divers and the best dives sites to visit.
Their Dive Guides all speak great English, and a smattering of a few other languages to boot, and as they are so knowledgeable and dedicated, they tend to get an amazing amount of return-bookings from return divers. Once you know and like your guide you just don’t change – a bit like hairdressers I imagine!
