Diving Adventure in the Indonesian Archipelago

On this 12-day diving safari in Bali, you will make 14 dives exploring the richest biodiversity of the underwater world. Bali is part of the Coral Triangle and the Indonesian archipelago is home to 500 coral reef species (seven times more marine species than the entire Caribbean!)

You’ll dive in the coral gardens and witness frogfish, harlequin shrimp and many other forms of marine life. In the global center of marine biodiversity, you can also discover rare species like pygmy seahorses hiding in the mud on ‘muck dives’ and take refuge in charming bungalows between the 14 dives.
