Planning Group Diving/Sightseeing Excursion - Need Advice!


I am looking to organize a group dive/sightseeing tour in early June. Ideally, we'd like the following:

- a roundtrip transfer from our hotel in Seminyak to a dive site in East Bali (Candidasa? Blue Lagoon)

- a boat that will take us out. Some people will dive, others will snorkel. if this is not possible, the snorkelers can stay on the beach for walk-in snorkeling

- drive to Tirta Gangga Water Palace, see some rice paddies

- drive back -- drop off in Ubud and at hotel in Seminyak.

Do you know of any company that can arrange this for us? There will be around 15 people. Or, do I need to book separately with a private car and a dive company?

Sorry I don't know a company but there probably are some. Alternatively you could book a driver to take you diving/snorkling & then visit Tirtagangga & the rice terraces nearby on your return. Maybe consider Amed as the diving & snorkling is very good around there & email diveshops & ask whether they can also accomodate snorklers. Amed to Tirtagangga is approx 20mins drive. You could also dive/snorkle the Liberty shipwreck just off the beach at Tulamben, 20-30mins drive from Amed. It's also one of the dive sites that diveshops visit.

A couple you could try in Amed are:



There are also several good spots for snorkling directly from the beach. I know that Adventure Divers offer a snorkling certificate so they may take you as a group.
