Discover Scuba Diving in Padang Bai

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
With a total of 9 dive sites just around the South-East coast, Padang Bai is one of the most famous scuba diving locations in Bali. Easy dives with little or almost no current and high chances of seeing White Tip Reef Sharks.
  • Learn scuba diving basics and enjoy guided diving in Padang Bai
  • See colorful coral and fish—and maybe a sea turtle or reef shark
  • Enjoy lunch, water, tea, and snacks in transit and on the boat
  • Relax with door-to-door transportation from Kuta, Seminyak, or Sanur
What to Expect
Meet your instructor and any fellow divers at the dive center, fill out the paperwork, and get fitted for equipment. Learn some scuba diving basics and then practice those simple key skills in the pool under close supervision before you transfer by car to Padang Bai. There’s plenty to see at all of Padang Bai’s nine dive sites. Whichever you experience, your instructor stays close at hand as you breathe underwater and experience weightlessness. In addition to colorful tropical fish and coral, look out for boxfishes, sea turtles, and whitetip reef sharks. Calm waters with very little current make conditions excellent for beginners.
