Bali Dived Site In General

   Indonesia  Indian Ocean
----- SCUBA Dive In Resort Bali Indonesia Online Information -----

Geography and Climate
The island of Bali was shaped by the action of volcanoes, which produced the rich, black soils that nourish Bali's beautiful and productive rice paddies.
Just 8-9 south of the equator, Bali is always warm-a mean 27.2 C, although the highlands are about 6 C cooler. Humidity is an almost constant 75 persent. Most of Bali's annual 2,500-3,000 millimeters of rain falls from November through March.

Bali's great strength is that it is NOT isolated. The island's reefs are ideally positioned to recieve a cosmopolitan assortment of plankton and juvenile animals from the Indonesia Throughflow, a massive flow of water that passes from the Pacific to the Indian Ocean. Because of this combination, perhaps Bali is just to familiar to be considered a great diving area.

Dive Sites
There are five main areas for diving in Bali, working counter clockwise around the island from the airport in the south: Nusa Dua and Sanur; Nusa Penida; Candi Dasa (Padang Bai, Gili Mimpang, Gili Tepekong); Amed/Cemeluk and Tulamben; Pemutaran, Menjangan and Gilimanuk ( Secret Bay). Each area offers dive locations for novice, intermediate and advanced divers. At most sites, divers can plan a dive to match their degree of experience, and dives can be made around the year.

Depth of dives
The best diving lies between 5 and 40 meters.

Marine Life
The varied inhabitants of Bali's reefs. " different fields, different grasshoppers."

Variable, 5-15 m, exceeds 30 m.

Water Temperature
Normally 26 - 27 C (78 - 80 F). During July and August, the temperature drops to 21 C (70 F)

High seasons
July-August and around Christmas and New Year.

The Liberty Wreck 120 meters long Tulamben,
Wooden anker wreck, cave and craggy wall Menjangan,
Pelagics, and between the months of August - November Mola-Mola (Sunfish) at Nusa Penida,
Rare critters muck diving at Secret Bay/Gilimanuk
Canyon at Gili Tepekong/Cand Dasa

Very tricky current, strong surge, uncomfortably cold in some dive sites.

Blue Hole, Belize

   Belize  Caribbean Sea
The Blue Hole is a feature attraction of diving in Belize. It is part of the Lighthouse Reef System and lies approximately 60 miles off the mainland out of Belize City. It is one of the most astounding dive sites to be found anywhere on earth,
It is an almost perfectly circular hole approximately one quarter of a mile (.4 km) across. Inside this hole the water is 480 feet (145 m) deep and it is the depth of water which gives the deep blue color.
The array of bizarre stalactites and limestone formations seem to become more intricate and intense the deeper you dive.
The temperature in the Blue Hole at 130ft is about 76F with hardly any change throughout the year at that depth.
For all the practical purposes the over 400-foot depth makes the Blue Hole a bottomless pit. The walls are sheer from the surface until a depth of approximately 110 feet where you will begin to encounter stalactite formations which actually angle back, allowing you to dive underneath monstrous overhangs. Hovering amongst the stalactites, you can't help but feel humbled by the knowledge that the massive formation before you once stood high and dry above the surface of the sea eons ago. The feeling is enhanced by the dizzying effect of nitrogen breathed at depths. The water is motionless and the visibility often approaches 200 feet as you break a very noticeable thermocline.

Black Wall

   Puerto Rico  Caribbean Sea

The Black Wall – 97 ft

This dive is on a wall covered with black corals and is pretty typical of the
profile that we dove for the wall dives. The top of the reef is at 60 feet and
we dove to a depth of ~95 feet along the wall. Dropping in we first sighted a
Spotted Eagle Ray and were accompanied by Four Eyed Butterfly fish while on top
of the reef and also spotted a four plus foot Green Moray.

The Super Bowl – 80 ft

The super bowl reminded me of Cedral in Cozumel with coral heads separated by
narrow sandy channels and is also around the same depth with a bottom at 80 or
so feet and the top of the reef at 50 some. At this site we saw the only shark
of the weekend and the only shark that others had seen in several days of

The Hole in the Wall – 135 ft

The hole in the wall starts at 125 feet and exits about 90 feet. This is a
nice dive and an easy swim thru that needn’t worry anyone. This is where one
of the group spotted a rock fish and we saw a couple of nice sized eels here to.

The Chimney – 75 ft

This was a really nice drive and was typical of the second dives in depth and
bottom. But, we were treated to a school of Barracuda and a Hawks Bill turtle
that Angel swears never saw me as I had to get out of its way or I would have
been run into. No kidding, it came within a very few inches.

In summary, Puerto Rico offers some excellent opportunities for wall and
reef diving and Angel has stated his intention to explore more dive sites west
of Parguera since he now has a craft that can reach them quickly. I also
can’t wait to check out the west coast around Mayaguez and Aguadilla
as I was told that the reefs and water there are beautiful as well. So, bring
the dive gear and come and explore a fascinating island with much to do and see
both above and beneath the sea.

   Norway  Atlantic

If any of you are coming over to Bergen, or thinking about it, then this

website may be of interest. I'd certainly recommend you take a look at the

"Information for visiting divers" section, and the weather section if

want an idea of our above water conditions. (And you can poke and laugh

during the winter)

The photo gallery is of course just for fun, and has been highly compressed

to be "56K" friendly for people who still have to use dial accounts.

section will continue to grow weekly. The movies are of course larger, but

only "optional"

Broken Rock

   Maldives  Indian Ocean
Broken Rock lies in the southernmost corner of the Ari Atoll, on the eastern side. The closest islands are Dhangethi to the north and Dhigurah to the south. The thila, which seems to have been cleft asunder by a blow from a giant axe, is some 70 metres (230 feet) in length, and rises to a depth of some 13 metres (43 feet) beneath the surface. The remarkable aspect of this coral base is the enormous canyon that runs diagonally across the centre, from southeast to northwest. With a depth of 22 metres (72 feet), this cleft was the source of the name, Broken Rock. On the eastern side is a jutting formation with a remarkable shape, and another small plateau, at a depth of 17 metres.
Apart from the considerable depth of the reef top, diving in this site is fairly easy. There are several decisive factors in any decision regarding the techniques to be used on this dive: the currents, which can be very strong at times, but also the level of experience of the participating divers. With weak currents, one can dive directly on to the top of the reef. The most elegant technique, which is also the simplest in the presence of powerful currents, is to dive at some distance from the reef, in the open ocean, and then to swim in the reef with the current. It is also possible to moor the boat on the reef itself, if it becomes necessary to enter and emerge from the water by means of a line.
The dive site has a great many soft corals and by a teeming and varied abundance of fish.
There is always the possibility of running into a gray reef shark (Carcharhinus amblyrhynchos) or two, or a school of barracuda (Sphyraena sp.). A mixed group of batfish (Platax teira) and blue fusiliers (Caesio lunaris) are usually guests at Broken Rock, as are the many sea turtles (Eretmochelys inbricata). The jutting crags on the northeastern side are populated by a great many tiny animals.

   Grenada  Caribbean Sea
Bianca C is probably the most famous ship wreck in the Caribbean. She sits in 150ft of water, she is an Italian cruise ship that sunk in 1961, being 600ft long you can do a few dives on her and still not see it all. It can be an exciting dive as you never know what you might see, it may be sharks, spotted eagle rays, atlantic spade fish, and jacks, this is to name just a few.
Here at Dive Grenada we also have technical groups come a couple of times a year (MAD DOG expiditions) and they will teach all aspects of tech diving on the Bianca C. So longer bottom time on her and some penertration to different parts of the ship.
So this is one dive not to be missed.

Bari Reef at Sand Dollar, Bonaire

   Netherlands Antilles  Caribbean Sea
Rates the top dive site in terms of species richness by the REEF Environmental organization. Present count, 323 species, plentiful in numbers as well as variety. With a drop off beginning in 30 feet (10 meters) of water, a continuous reef that runs parallel to shore, minimal to no currents, this is an ideal dive of all levels of divers. The majority of the fish life, colorful orange elephant ear sponges, purple tube and vase sponges and gorgonians are found between 30 - 60 feet or water. These shallow depths provide divers with plenty of underwater viewing time. Bonaire is ranked as the #1 macro capital in the Caribbean, and no site is better for marco than Bari reef. In the shallow terrace ( 0 to 30 feet) the rubble is home to move than 100 species of fish alone. (also ideal for snorkelers). Yellow headed jawfish, pike blenneys, sail fin blenneys and other beauties abound for those with patient eyes! On the reef slope, enormous schools of creole wrasse, queen and french angel fish, rock beauties, groupers, butterfly fish, and countless others. Frog fish generally there for long periods of time, squid in the shallow without fail!

Bianca C

This is the wreck of an Italian Ocean Liner that burnt and sank in the 1960's. She is 600 feet long and very deep (the top is reached at 30m - the bottom at 50+) It is covered in coral and is home to lots of small marine life.

Baja Alcyone

   Cocos Islands  Pacific
On the Oceanus Agressor live aboard. This is a dive that has quite strong currents. There are lots of large creatures to photograph including sharks, whale sharks, dolphins etc. It is a very exposed site and can get very busy with live aboards and divers.

Blue Corner

   Palau  Pacific
This has got to be one of the Worlds' best dives!

It has everything. The Marine life is big and small but with a roaring current you don't really have time to examine the colorful wall. It's hold on to your hat time and go with the flow.

The large pelagics are wall to wall and there is nothing more thrilling than to see the multidudinous sharks dart in for a nibble of some fish.

Predation is the name of the game and this is why the critters are so profuse I guess.

As you fly along (and that's what it is like) you need to be aware of where your group is (obviously) and watch your depth.

I was a bit wary getting in as there were huge breakers at the top of the drop off. Your dive master should put you in a ways off, get down quick and get to the wall.

The local dive guides are good, but perhaps a bit slack so tell 'em what you want.
