        Great diving with a great dive team!
        We found Diving-Indo to be a 5 star organisation. We did 3 days with 7 dives. Each day was a different experience at a different location. Every aspect from office staff, car drivers, boat Captains, food location were great and very well coordinated. The best was our wonderful Dive Master, Hadi. He was safe and communicated everything very well. And knew all the dive sites perfectly. Even though the dive sites tend to be crowded, he and the Captain did their best to keep us away from many people when they could. We saw a huge variety of marine life with beautiful coral everywhere. Would highly recommend this company.

        Great dive tour package. 3 days 7 dives. Awesome time.
        Visit Bali for the first time for only 5 days. It took me a while to find the right dive tour operator, before I arrived in Bali, but I picked a really good company in Diving Indo. Thanks to Anna for organizing it. Some of the best dive experiences I have ever had. Hadi was awesome dive guide taking me to Tulamben, Gili Tepekong and Nusa Penida. 7 dives in 3 days.. the dive sites where picture perfect and the dives awesome. All dive sites where fantastic but Nasu Penida was amazing. Highly recommend these guys, they organized everything. Very professional, turned up on time every day to pick me up and had all the gear organized. I had zero complaints. Although they were lacking in merchandise at the shop to take as a memento. Would have loved a tshirt to 2. But I intend to go back and dive there again. Next time I hope they have tshirt bigger than xs :).

        Highly recommend this diving centre!
        We’ve chose 4 days package. 2 days on Nusa Penida, 1 day in Tulamben, and 1 day in Padang Bai. We can highly recommend diving in Nusa Panida, this is the best diving side for sure. Tulamben is pretty far from Sanur, (about 2,5 hour) but if you really into wreck diving you couldn’t miss that. In Padang Bai, there is also wreck, but tiny one. We’ve seen the biggest moray there. To sum up, We would like to say many thanks to all staff, especially Natalie and Fajar - you’re great dive masters. Also many thanks to Mario - you’re good leader, sadly we didn’t have occasion to diving together, but maybe next time!

        Perfect diving experience
        Highly recommended!!! Everything was on the highest standards, safety, dive sites, equipment, instructors! Nusa penida is truly amazing, not only Manta point ( we have seen plenty of them) but also corals! Amazing experience in friendly atmosphere. Mario told us also a lot of interesting facts about the area. For sure I will come back to dive with them again. Thank you guys!

        YES, YES, YES - Magical moments for the family
        It has been a long time since we visited Bali, however the choice was obvious! Diving Indo is like going to see your best friends. They are an amazing crew and they really have great knowledge and professionalism in their work! We did 3 days of diving with my wife and our kids were under the care of a dive master, who took them snorkeling and build sandcastles on the beach. What a great time we had and what amazing memories we will have after this trip ! New equipment, great service, clear instructions and briefings mad us all feel very safe in every way! This is a must to do in Bali! Thank You Mariusz! Next time we will charter a Boat ad do the amazing program of Lunch on a magical beach!

        Best Open water scuba certification
        I came to Indonesia on vacation, I traveled to Bali, and I decided I wanted to do something I’ve always wanted to do, learn how to scuba. I booked my certification with Indo diving and it was a magical experience, the dive master Anna was incredible. Don’t get me wrong the course is rigorous, but with the right encouragement and teacher it’s also empowering and amazing. Anna is kind, gentle, strong, smart and experienced. She knows how to teach people and I believe that is a special skill. She will keep you safe, and you will open up a whole new experience, and world. I’ll be forever grateful to Anna, and will come back and dive with her as often as I can.

        MUST do in Bali - Amazing experience!
        GREAT experience from start to finish! Everyone (Mario, Bagong, Bobby) was very friendly, clear, professional and helpful throughout the day. Pick up was on time (and with AMAZING coffee stop), instructions were quick and thorough, and their support throughout the dives are just amazing! For a first-time diver they put us all at ease, control the situation underwater well, and we saw some gorgeous mantas, turtles, octopus, and even a sea snake! Thank you thank you thank you! We will for sure be back for more adventures! Anita & Harry

        a great half day experience.
        if you enjoy snorkelling, then you will enjoy it here. Water is clear with heaps of coral & tropical fish. Book a taxi & ask to go here. Be sure to request a small boat. that way, it won't be so crowded. There were 4 tourists on our boat which made it comfortable.

      Had a really cool day with the Diving Indo team. We had the pleasure to do snorkeling at the Crystal bay and Manta point with Budy. He was an awesome person: making sure we feel comfortable and see the most out of the fishes and Manta rays. Everything was perfect!

      Out of this world experience watching manta rays, they are mesmerising wonderful creatures!
      We had three stops in our trip (only two of us snorkelling, other 5 people were divers), first stop Crystal Bay where it was too choppy for snorkelling so we did give it a go but decided to get back on boat as there weren't many fish.
      Then set off to see manta rays and what an amazing experience it was! We've seen few of them gliding one by one near the cliff, they are huge but very peaceful.
      Third stop was Mangrove which is northeast of Nusa Lembongan and this was best snorkelling spot we tried in Bali. The coral is amazing and you'll see a wide variety of marine life, very much recommend this place as water is warmer there as well so you can snorkel for long time.
      Also, guys at Diving Indo provide you with wet suit on top of standard snorkel gear equipment which was really handy as waters got colder at Manta Bay and overall, if are doing 3 snorkelling stops at 1 hour each you get cold anyway so wet suit helped a lot.
      We had young lad snorkelling with us (sorry didn't get your name) and he was great, he looked after us very well - thank you!
      Just one piece of advise, if you are prone to sea sickness take motion sickness tablet straight away when it's offered to you at Diving Indo office (or take your own if you have it), sea can be very choppy and there are long boat rides between spots.

      We are glad you enjoyed your snorkelling experience with us and got to experience snorkelling with manta rays and the beautiful mangrove. The water temperature really depends on the season you come in. August to October tends to be colder in Nusa Penida thats why we always supply wetsuits. We are just lucky to have mantas all year round. Thank you for this very informative review, its very useful.

      Decent gear, good pre trip brief. Competent instructors, great lunch. Crew did a lot to assist those less confident in the water. Epic visibility at Crystal bay. Great day from pick up to drop off. Big ups to the captain who choose comfort of passengers and selected the appropriate speed, even though he could of sped across with the large twin engine arrangements.

      My husband wanted to do this trip, so reluctantly I agreed. Great pick up and once all paperwork (signing away all your rights!!!) and wetsuits sorted we were off.

      I unfortunately didn’t enjoy this trip and was very nervous - the boat ride out was very choppy (take the sickness tablet) and when we got to the Mantary point I couldn’t get in the water!!! The staff we great with me and I stayed on the boat while my husband snorkelled and saw Mantas!!!

      The guys were great, it was just me, but if this is your thing - they are a good group to use.

      We had a great day snorkeling at two locations around Nusa Penida. We were lucky enough to see the Manta Rays swimming around us, such a beautiful thing to see. We then snorkelled in shallower reef and saw many different types of fish, coral and even a turtle. We felt safe and comfortable during each snorkel with great instructions and guidance from the crew. Wonderful lunch and plenty of water and fruit provided. Great day out and would highly recommend!!

      We had an amazing experience! Our first time snorkeling and we were quite excited.
      The driver was punctual and very friendly! When we arrived at the office, everyone was kind and helped us to chose the right equipment.
      When we arrived at Manta Point, I acted like the beginner I was - jumping into the water, breathing the wrong way and got a large sip of seawater. Instantly, a guide was by my side and helped me to calm down. All the time in the water, the guides were really aware and took care of us. Felt safe all the time!
      We were so lucky we saw A LOT of Mantas! Just amazing! Our guides also made sure we don't miss anything.
      After this, we got to Crystal Bay. As I was a little nervous due to the high waves (which absolutely might be just my imagination), I stayed on the boat while my husband had a great time here as well and also saw 2 turtles.
      We want to thank the Team of Diving Indo for being patient, caring and helpful all the time.
      Totally recommend!

      We couldn’t be happier with our snorkel experience. The whole staff was terrific from the moment of our booking inquiry (which was easy via WhatsApp since I didn’t have cell phone service) to their shuttle service to, most importantly, the snorkeling
      Itself! Natalia was knowledgeable and a great guide to the whole experience! Randy looked out well for the group when we were in the water and made sure we didn’t miss it when the first mantas were coming our way. Seeing them was absolutely incredible and to be so close, wow. Amazing! The team kept us comfortable on the boat and provided towels, lots of fresh fruit, water, and a nice box lunch. We really enjoyed our time with them!
