Made a last-minute trip to Bali and wanted to go scuba diving while there. Researched several dive centers and settled on Baruna Dive Center because of their quick response to my emails and their reviews on Tripadvisor. Have to agree, they were awesome!
I was able to do a day trip from Ubud to go scuba diving. I arranged transportation from Baruna Dive Center and the driver was there to pick me up early in the morning and then bring me back in the afternoon. I believe it was an additional USD $50 roundtrip which isn't bad considering it's about 2.5 hours drive each way.
Our instructor was awesome. She made sure we were all comfortable and understood all the different techniques and procedures as this was my first time scuba diving. First we practiced in the pool on site, then we headed to Tulamben. We first dived around the coral garden where we saw all different types of coral with vibrant colors and a wealth of sea life including clownfish (Nemo). Then we came back up for a break, then headed back to the USAT Liberty shipwreck. This was incredible. The shipwreck is filled with sea life of all kinds. It was truly amazing. We saw all kinds of fish, coral, eels, stingrays, etc. Loved every minute of it. Even though we went around lunchtime, it wasn't overly crowded and still got some great photos. I also traveled by myself and joined a couple on our lessons and the instructor made all of us feel at ease.
Baruna Dive Center is truly professional in their approach, but also friendly and hospitable. I had a great time and would totally recommend it for anyone.
