There are many different reasons why taking your PADI Divemaster or PADI IDC at Joe’s Gone Diving is such a good idea, a short overview of the main reasons for taking your PADI Pro course on Bali at Joe:
So why would you choose Bali for your PADI Pro dive program? First and foremost, because the diving is absolutely stunning and very diverse here. There are not many places in the world where you will be exposed to such diverse dive sites, from very easy diving to thrilling drift dives. As it is located in the coral triangle of South East Asia, the variety of marine life is immense and the corals very healthy. You can find anything here, from octopuses and special nudibranches to sharks, turtles and mantas. And in the right season the special mola fish. While you will be too busy during the PADI IDC to dive on many of the amazing dive sites Bali has to offer, during the MSDT-Prep program you will get the opportunity to dive on the amazing USAT Liberty wreck from WWII that is teeming with marine life. And if you are lucky enough to do your PADI Divemaster Internship here on Bali, most of the wonderful dive sites will simply be your office for the day.
But there is much more to do on Bali than just diving. Bali is also well known for surfing. There are some great surf spots here on Bali, for the experienced and less experienced diver. So on your day off or after diving you can catch a wave if you like to.
Bali is also famous for its culture. The many Hindu temples and cultural hotspots like Ubud can keep you busy for quite some time. Wander through the beautiful rice fields. Go downhill mountain-biking from the Mount Batur Volcano. Or visit the temple in the sea: Tanah Lot. Bargain at the markets in Ubud or walk through the Monkey Forest.
And, finally. Relax on the beach while watching the sun go down or enjoy some fresh fish and a local Bintang beer. Or if you are in the mood for partying, go to Kuta or Seminyak, just 20 minutes by car away.
Bali offers something for everyone and will make sure you have an experience of a life time during your PADI Pro course on Bali.
