We did our open water diver @true scuba. Mangku is the best dive instructor you can imagine. He knows the best spots, is friendly, professional and flexible. The gear is in good condition, so you're feeling safe all the time. Furthermore pricing is fair. All in all: if you're in north bali & like to dive, visit true scuba & Mangku for the best dive experience.
It is all about making divers happy: Excellent selection and great variety of dive sites, engaged cruise director round the clock, each of the crew members very helpfull. Good mixture of diving and land excursions. Saw the first sun fish in our lifetime!
I did my PADI Open Water course with Manta Manta Diving, Bali. They were fantastic and offered a great course which was very well priced. My instructor; Stuart, was patient, reassuring and a great teacher who makes the course educational and fun. The instructors here are very knowledgable, experienced and enthusiastic. I will dive with Manta Manta Diving, Bali again and will recommend them to all my friends.
Thank you Stuart & Manta Manta Diving, Bali.
I dove with Geko last September specifically to find the mola mola, to of all the dive shops I visited they were the most professional in my opinion. They made sure to check my dive certification before going to the mola mola dive sites as they were more difficult sites than most, they were very safety conscious and I had some really great dives with them. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend these guys!
My time on the Indo Siren has been a truly five star experience. From even before setting a single foot onboard, the service and communication were fantastic. The boat itself is beautiful, well equipped, extremely comfortable and perfectly set up for both a dive and sailing experience across the Indonesian waters. I found the dive guides friendly, knowledgeable and professional. The service crew (dingy drivers, compressor, host and cleaning staff) were likewise helpful, friendly and accommodating. The entire crew truly made me feel welcome and at home for 12 days. What a wonderful first liveaboard experience - I will definitely be planning to take another trip with the Siren fleet in the near future. Thank you!
Spending my holidays in Bali, my plans were to dive with Mantas as I heard Nusa Penida was "the" spot to do so. I´ve first get in touch with dive centers in Bali but quickly get advised to go straight to Nusa Lembongan, closer and cheaper than Bali mainland. Indeed it was a great decision! This island is a real paradise and people are so friendly! I´ve been recommended Legend Diving to dive with and once more, I couldn´t have take a better decision! I´ve been welcoming by the owner Isabel and i´ve been diving with her husband Ricardo who knows everything about diving and the dive sites around! He always had a great story about this or that and we laugh a lot! Everybody was feeling like home and so I was! Such a shame that I couldn´t stay longer! I would love to go back on my...
Stay away!!! Unprofessional, unsafe instructor and unacceptable staff behaviour.
With a CMAS 2 and over 70 dives across several seas I have never lived such a bad experience with a diving centre that clearly has no respect for divers and worst for safety.
Briefly summarised; cruel safety issues, lies seems to be common and we were finally mocked and threatened by the staff...
Aware of difficult dive conditions around Nusa Penida (strong changing currents) we decided to change diving centre to one that seemed to be safer based on comments and recommendations. We started by booking dives at Octopus with Thea, the manager, who seemed at 1st to be nice and professional.
The manager Thea simply books divers on sites that are appealing without consulting its staff/instructor.
We came i...
As an instructor on the great barrier reef, i thought professionalism may lack in Bali. How wrong I was, Stuart and Simon at Manta Manta Diving at the ultimate professionals. Safety, fun and experience are all world class. We had a great few days diving the Liberty in Tulamben, Stuart was our guide and has a great eye for marine life big and small. Some of the best shore and wreck diving we have done. Definitely my choice when in Bali!
crews are very kind and always be ready to help you, excellent room and facility,nice arrangement of the diving site, food is surprisingly delicious, especially snacks (*specially can prepare some Chinese taste food).
This trip was terrific! The diving crew and live aboard crew worked extremely well together. The help and information about diving and the surrounding area was extremely knowledgeable. I will definitely recommend this live-aboard to my friends.
Getting the ideal Dive Experience is a great feeling and few things compare the perfect dive. Having said that, everyone’s definition of a perfect dive greatly varies but one thing that would be useful to any diver is information.
