BALI NOMADIC DIVE SAFARI
This 12-night safari will take you to four different areas around the beautiful island of Bali. It will show you many things the island has to offer. With 22 guided dives and five land excursions, this safari will show you firsthand the diversity of Bali, both underwater and above. All dives will be conducted from our custom-built dive boat where your equipment will be stored for the length of the trip. This is a Bali liveaboard dive experience with the comforts of land-based travel and accommodation.
This safari is suitable for all levels of divers and non-divers. We could even plan to do a variety of PADI Courses during the safari. For the non-divers, there are countless activities that we can arrange throughout this trip which will keep you just as busy as the groups who are diving.

Accommodation and Transport
Situated in the protected area of Bali Barat National Park, the walls surrounding the island are covered with gigantic gorgonian sea fans and soft coral. Clear water, a white-sand beach and a coral garden will charm everyone snorkeling or diving the island.
The topography of the bay at Pemuteran is comprised of seamounts or artificial reef created by a local initiative 15 years ago. What’s special around here? Macro life from frogfishes, electric clams, halgerdas, nembrothas, chromodoris, nudibranchs, seahorses and more.
Surrounded by mangroves, this bay barely sees any waves throughout the year and is recognized as one of the healthiest reefs in Bali. It is also home to the colorful mandarin fish.
Made famous by the USAT Liberty wreck, this village situated at the base of Mount Agung allows us to encounter numerous bumphead parrotfish, travellies, groupers, ghost pipefish, morray eels, garden eels, ruban eels and much more. Dive sites like Alamanda, Seraya, Coral Garden, Drop Off, and Kubu’s wreck bring a lot of diversity and contrast in terms of color and a black-sand beach.
Leaf scorpionfish, pygmy seahorses, gloomy tambja, hawksbill turtles and ribbon eels await for us. Dive some of the liveliest artificial reefs and walls of the island in the north of Amed. Explore one of its bays by night to encounter the creatures we can’t see during daylight. Japanese wreck, Lipah, Bunutan, Jemeluk Bay and the Pyramids are just a few of the choices for dive sites.
This area has numerous choices at our disposal. Blue Lagoon with a white-sand bottom and Coral Garden offer a great chance to enjoy turtles, cuttlefish and several species of nudibranchs. Jepun is an artificial reef with a wreck that was sunk as part of the reef to attract rays, eels, frogfishes, cuttlefish and much more. When we dive The Jetty, make sure to have your camera fully charged for the frogfish, stonefish, waspfish, flabelina, seamoth, flying gurnard and a few other surprises.
These are a group of small islands and submerged rocks off the coast of Padang Bay. Underwater, it is a paradise of hard coral, cuttlefish, turtles, reef sharks, and sometimes if we are lucky, mola-mola. These sites must be dived with caution regarding the tides and require an advanced level of diving.
Famous for drift diving, manta rays and Crystal Bay, this island offers hard and soft coral and the chance to see pelagic life. From August to October, Nusa Penida offers a great chance to get close to sunfishes, also known as mola-molas. All year round, regardless of sea conditions, we can get close to reef and oceanic mantas traveling to the cleaning station of Manta Bay and Manta Point.
