Overall, we had a great experience doing an intro dive with Orca. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly, and they made sure we were prepared before we went out to the dive site. The only negative part of the experience was the boating and putting on our equipment. The boat was small and not suitable for diving; it was not operated by the dive company, either. We had to get off the boat and swim in the water (which was quite choppy due to high boat traffic) while putting on our gear. This was not an easy task. The boat driver and dive instructor seemed to have some miscommunication, and at one point the boat started moving and I had to quickly move out of the way of the engine; I did not feel safe and questioned whether I should just get back in the boat and not do the dive. The dive site itself was beautiful with lots of sea life and coral. Overall, it was a good experience, but the boating situation could be improved.

Very nice underwater experience all over the most famous diving spots in Bali. Staff is friendly and helpful; suggestion: check in advance terms and conditions.

What makes a perfect dive trip? No hassle, no stress, small groups of 2-4 divers, slow and relaxed dives, DM who spots the tiniest creatures and a dive shop that takes care of your equipment. That is what you get with Orca. Perfect!

This was my second time diving with Orca Dive Club Candidasa and I was happy to meet the same old staff again: it gave a sense of stability to return to the same "family" again. The staff is a well oiled machine and excelling in reception, dive guiding, transfers, equipment care, ... And they go the extra mile to make your stay & dives as enjoyable as possible. Another pro is the location: house reef at their doorstep and located in-between Padangbai and Tulamben/Amed, making it the ideal basis for diving at a diversity of dive sites. A must do in Candidasa!

2nd time with Olaf and his crew. That is the real holliday experince on diving. Despite rather poor visibilty making the best of it and go where I wanted to go, nothing was to much to organize. Almost "hugging" with sharks in the cave at house reef Island was top ! Real nice beleeving again.
