When I first started diving I was only interested in seeing the big fish, like sharks, manta rays and dolphins, which there are plenty of around Bali. This changed when I started my dive master course and dived a lot on the beautiful coral reefs around Bali.
During one of my first dives in Bali my dive instructor showed me my first Pygmy seahorse and from that moment on I didn’t only love big fish anymore but starting to love looking for small critters and especially for seahorses.

The idea of dipping below the surface after sunset seems a very scary thought to a lot of novice divers. Why do they think night diving is scary?? Do they think that because you can't see any further than the glow of your light there might be a big man-eating shark waiting for you or you might drift off and get lost in the blue?
The plain truth is that night diving can be intimidating for both novice and experienced divers, but there truly is nothing quite like it.
You probably have been scuba diving at a site many times before, however at night you drop into a whole new world and watch it come to life. Under the glow of your dive light you will experience how the scene changes as day creatures retire and nocturnal organisms emerge. Explore the dive site by shining your light under rocks and inside the corals and you will find creatures that only come out at night!

It is always important to select a dive center carefully, but for more than any other diving course for the Divemaster course. The Divemaster course is the first professional diving course in the PADI spectrum and will be the basis for anything you would do in the future. And as you will most likely be spending a significant amount of time at the dive center, it pays off to select the dive center that is right for you.

Just must have seen these divers, they have distinctly marked tanks, green with yellow stripes and Nitrox or Enriched air written over it. What is it? Why are they using it?
If you have asked yourself these questions, or if you are interested to extend your knowledge you arrived at the right place.

Diving with mantas or molas (sunfish) is an incredible experience. One that many divers remember for a very long time. I for one will never forget my first encounter with a manta ray or the sunfish! How great your experience is and how long you will be able to see them, will also largely depend on how divers behave around these fish. You might have experienced diver behavior underwater at some point or another that scared fish away and spoiled your dive a bit. To allow everyone to make the most of their encounter with the sunfish and mantas without disturbing these great animals, the Coral Triangle Center, Aquatic Alliance and other organisations have developed a code of conduct which we follow at Joe’s Gone Diving....
