Would you like to go diving in Bali but you are here for just a short while or busy doing tours with Family? We can take you diving just for a day. We will come to pick you up at your hotel in south Bali in the morning and then go for 2 or 3 dives before bringing you back to your hotel late in the afternoon. We organize diving day trips to all of the dive locations in Bali that are within 2 to 2.5 hours reach from south Bali including Tulamben, Amed, Padang Bai, Candidasa and Nusa Penida.

Bali is home to some of the best diving in all of Indonesia. There are several unique diving areas which have a lot of different sites all around the "Island of the Gods". The best way to enjoy diving in Bali is to stay a few days in each of these dive locations in order to enjoy Bali's rich diversity and underwater topography. Let us advise you on the perfect itinerary that will feature the best diving that Bali has to offer and the right kind of dives that suit your diving style. We offer a great selection of different hotels and resorts near all of the best diving spots in Bali.

Underwater Photography Courses in Bali

We created the Bali Academy of Underwater Photography in 2013 and since that time we have trained dozens of beginner and advanced underwater photographers. We love underwater photography and one of the best rewards we experience is watching our students achieving great results after only 2 or 3 days of training. We run private 1 to 1, 2 to 1, and small group courses in Bali on demand when we are on the island. Bali is home to a lot of great dives including the USS Liberty wreck which is one of the ultimate locations in the world to learn both macro and wide angle photography techniques.

Scuba Diving Trips and Adventures in Indonesia

Liveaboard Trips and Photography workshops in Lembeh Strait - Ambon - Raja Ampat - Komodo National Park and the best dive destinations in Indonesia.

Looking to scuba dive outside of Bali? We have years of experience living and leading trips throughout Indonesia in such far-flung locations as Bunaken, Lembeh Strait, Raja Ampat, Komodo, Ambon, and Alor. We often create scuba diving trips for groups to these locations either in resorts or on liveboards as well as offer “underwater photography workshops” every year in select locations.

Underwater Photography Workshop in Indonesia

We plan annual UW photography workshops in Lembeh Strait as well as Ambon. The hallmark of our workshops is creating a pleasant atmosphere for everyone to enjoy while combining our technical lectures with a lot of fun. The instructors are on location not only to present knowledge in the classroom but also to help you improve your skills underwater. How do we accomplish that? Simple, none of our instructors take a camera with them underwater, instead we carry slates in order to help you practice your new skills. This is the best way for you to see immediate results.

We call our UW photo workshops "Underwater Photography Fun Weeks" as we believe that a non-competitive environment is the best way to enjoy the art of photography while having fun at the same time.

Every year we organize an underwater photography workshop in the wonderful Lembeh Strait. We always choose NAD-Lembeh Resort for our photo workshops as NAD is a photography focused resort combining great service at a reasonable price. With a dive guide to guest ratio of 1 to 2, we also maximize our time with the critters while being able to maintain the pace that we like. Whether you are a beginning underwater photographer or already a seasoned veteran, there is always something to learn at our workshops as well as a great sense of fun and the chance to meet new friends.

UW Photography Fun Week in Ambon, Maluku

Our partner resort in Ambon is Maluku Divers who lives by the slogan "Critters Without Crowds", which is the perfect motto as it's rare to see other divers in Ambon. The Maluku Divers resort is located in Ambon Bay which is the epicentre of the top critter dives in Ambon. All of the dive spots are a short boat ride from the resort which allows us to spend a lot of time underwater. With a professionally run dive operation, our Ambon photo workshops run very smoothly and everyone has a lot of fun. Ambon is easy to get to with daily flights from Bali, Jakarta, and Makassar. If you are a keen macro photographer and haven't dive in Ambon yet, it really is a destination that should be on top of your list.

Liveaboard Group Trips in Indonesia

Mike and Luca have been diving in Indonesia for over 10 years and have explored almost all of the archipelago on numerous liveaboard trips. Using the knowledge we have gained from this experience we time our liveaboard trips to each location with the best conditions and tides in mind. All of our liveaboard trips are led by either Luca or Mike in order to add the necessary knowledge and a friendly atmosphere on the trip. We work with the liveaboard cruise directors in order to tweak the itinerary so that we dive the best sites with the best possible conditions. During liveaboard trips we don't offer full photo workshops but we do offer tips and tricks on underwater photography each day and will of course answer all questions about diving, photography, and Indonesia! We offer regular liveaboard trips to top destinations such as Komodo National Park, Raja Ampat, and other interesting destinations throughout Indonesia; check our schedule and join us on one of our trips, we promise great diving and lots of fun!
