Dive Sites Overview

Gather at the dive center, our starting point for an approximate 45-minute car ride to either Secret Bay or Puri Jati (each in opposite directions). Upon arrival, we prepare our gear and make a shore entry. Dive times typically range from 75 to 120 minutes, concluding when the first diver hits 50 bars, feels chilly, tired, or hungry. Usually, one extended dive is enough for either site. After resurfacing, relish a well-deserved break with Balinese tea or coffee, warming up as we share tales of the treasures we’ve uncovered.

Secret Bay Gilimanuk, affectionately known as Secret Bay in Bali’s vibrant dive community, is a hidden gem nestled on the northwest corner of the island. This secluded bay boasts a unique characteristic — powerful currents, driven by a reef just beyond its entrance. Functioning as a colossal underwater catch tank, Secret Bay acts as a massive nursery for a myriad of larval fish. These vigorous tidal currents contribute to colder waters, approximately 20-25°C, creating an ideal environment for macro photography enthusiasts.

Diving into the depths of Secret Bay, you’ll encounter an array of marine wonders, from playful frogfish and elusive seahorses to graceful ghost pipefish and the enigmatic wunderpus. The bay’s ecosystem nurtures cuttlefish, sea snakes, sea moths, dragonets, and other captivating creatures. As you venture into this underwater haven, ensure your camera’s battery is fully charged, ready to capture the fascinating encounters with Secret Bay’s captivating inhabitants.

Depth: 1 – 10 meters

Puri Jati is the name of a beach and a temple situated on the coast of Seririt. It features a shallow, black-sand bottom and is an area that muck dive lovers will want to explore.

Bottom dwellers such as sea moths, nudibranchs, cuttlefish, and mimic octopuses can be encountered. Photographers, make sure your batteries are charged and have the proper macro lens ready!
