THE DIVING BUSINESS IN BALI
August 25, 2018
Avoid clubs in the cities of Kuta and Sanur?
Tourism and overdeveloped in Bali. Do not go straight on the first agency that sells diving trips. There are many diving clubs in Kuta and Sanur where Bali’s largest tourist mass is located. In fact, if there are so many clubs there, it is only to catch the maximum number of customers because most of the diving sites in Bali are located further around the island of Nusa Penida in the south of Bali.
So these clubs make you pay much more for dives to cover the price of the speed boat that takes you to the dive site. In all you can count between 30 minutes and 1 hour to arrive.
The major disadvantage in addition to the price is that we arrive at the last dive sites and there can be a lot of people. the advantage is that in the evening we are back to where we started. It is convenient for the hurry ones who want to dive quickly and return.
See you at most dive sites
The good technique is to go yourself where the dives are. Among the best diving spots there is Tulumben on the east coast to dive into a shallow wreck (perfect for beginners) and Nusa Lembongan a small island all the way south of Bali. It is in fact in Nusa Penida not far that are located almost all the dive sites in the area but there are no diving clubs on this island on which tourism is very little developed.
By organizing your dives with a local club you will arrive earlier on the site and you will pay less. Instructors will also know better the sites.
