We have just hosted a group of 15 scuba divers and 7 non divers from South African for a Diving Safari around Bali.
On arrival day, the group arrived in Bali in the morning from Singapore.
We had lunch and a welcome briefing in one of our favorite restaurants in Sanur, before we headed up to North West Bali. The guests and team spent the first 3 nights of the itinerary in the wonderful town of Pemuteran.
Once we arrived, we collected all the dive gear from the guests to organize for the following day.
We went out for 2 boat dives to Menjangan island.
The weather was perfect for the start of our dive safari with calm, clear water. We enjoyed two great wall dives.
In the afternoon, we picked up the guests from the resort and hiked to the top of a nearby hill overlooking the bay. What a great way to enjoy the beautiful sunset.
We went out for 2 muck dives to Secret Bay where we encountered seahorses, frogfish, nudies, ghost pipefish, mandarin fish, picturesque dragonets, and more.
Lunch was served after 2 dives and everyone enjoyed a relaxing afternoon.
We checked out from Mimpi Menjangan Resort and headed east for 2 muck dives at Puri Jati. We arranged a buffet lunch for all our guests at this beautiful spot.
After 2 dives, we headed to Tulamben in North East Bali for the next few days.
We did 2 shore dives at the Drop Off & Coral Gardens, several divers also opted to join in on a night dive.
A very special Babi Guling (suckling pig) dinner was organized tonight for everyone.
Everyone enjoyed an early morning dive at the Liberty shipwreck. After this dive a few guests headed back to south Bali while others remained in Tulamben to enjoy 2 more dives before heading to Sanur.
3 speedboats headed to Nusa Penida on the search for manta rays and sunfish.
We had a great manta ray dive but only one diver was lucky enough to encounter a Mola.
The last day of diving, we went back to Nusa Penida for another crack at finding the Molas. Luckily today we had great Mola luck. One of the groups was lucky enough to have one patient mola with them for the entire dive with no other groups around!
In the late afternoon, we headed to Uluwatu Temple to see the beautiful temple, the panoramic view, and the Kecak Dance at sunset. To end this fabulous trip, we had a farewell dinner in Jimbaran with all 22 guests and the entire dive team from the Underwater Tribe.
What a lovely way to finish the trip!
Thanks to Blue Reef Divers for joining us once again & we hope to see you in 2020 !
