    We booked the day before and within the first half hour a WhatsApp came from the organizer with further information. We were picked up from the hotel at 7:00 am and taken to the diving school in Sanur. Here the equipment was distributed and after a short time we sat in the car to drive to the diving spot in Padang Bai. When we got there, we briefly selected lunch and then went straight to the boat and to the first diving sport. There were two of us and we had an instructor. No other participants. That was really great! The equipment was explained to us and all questions answered. Since we have never been to a swap, we were very excited, but all fears were taken away from us and we felt very comfortable. The two dives were a dream! There is so much to see. Our diving instructor was really great and nice. After diving there was a super delicious lunch and then we went back to the hotel. We would do it again and again.

    for us it was the first diving experience and it will remain unforgettable. Our instructor immediately put us at ease by explaining the basic rules of diving in an efficient and simple way. Attentive and available to our every need, he made us experience a wonderful emotion among the depths of Padangbai. It all ended with a delicious lunch in a typical Padangbai restaurant. To do absolutely and congratulations to our instructor

    In the morning at exactly 07:00 we were picked up at our hotel. After a half hour drive we arrived at the Bali Diving office, to fill in some forms. Then our 1:15 hour drive to Padangbai started, when we arrived here the things were loaded on the boat and we had to sail a short distance. Once we arrived, a very good and clear instruction was given, after which we were allowed to enter the water. The instructor gradually helped us (2 people) into the depths, paying close attention to us. With the rented Go-Pro he took super nice photos and videos. We have seen Turtles, Squid, Clown Fish, Trumpet Fish etc. among others. After two dives we had lunch at a nearby restaurant. All in all a great experience!
