Choosing the Right Bali Diving Package for You

Our Bali diving packages cater to divers of all skill levels, from beginners to advanced divers. Make sure to choose a package that matches your experience and skill level to ensure a safe and enjoyable diving experience.
For example, if you are not Advanced Open Water certified with a minimum of 20 logged dives, you should not consider booking the Mola Mola package because the dives will be deep and with potential strong currents.
Bali diving packages can range from short weekend getaways to extended diving holidays. Consider your time constraints and personal preferences when selecting a package to ensure you get the most out of your diving adventure.
Most importantly take duration in consideration to manage your no decompression time and no fly time.

Best Time to Bali
Dry Season (April to October)
The dry season, which lasts from April to October, is generally considered the best time to visit Bali. During these months, you can expect sunny days, lower humidity, and less rainfall, creating ideal conditions for outdoor activities like surfing, diving, and exploring the island’s beautiful landscapes and ancient temples.
If you’re a diving enthusiast, this is an an ideal time to embark on dive safaris and dive trips to witness the stunning underwater world surrounding Bali. However, it’s important to note that this is also the peak tourist season, so popular areas can be crowded, and prices for accommodation and flights may be higher.
Shoulder Months (April, May, June, September, and October)
If you prefer fewer crowds and are willing to accept occasional rain showers, the shoulder months of April, May, June, September, and October offer a good balance of pleasant weather and lesser tourist traffic. During these months, you can still enjoy favorable conditions to see and like to engage in outdoor activities, such as dive safaris and dive trips, but with the added advantage of a more peaceful atmosphere and potentially lower prices.
Wet Season (November to March)
The wet season in Bali, from November to March, is a great time to see lush greenery on the island and experience a more tranquil and authentic Bali. It’s not ideal for certain outdoor activities, but it presents an opportunity for dive safaris and dive trips. Moreover, during this period, there are fewer tourists and lower prices for accommodation and flights, making it even more appealing for those seeking a quieter vacation and more affordable prices.
Ultimately, the best time to check out Bali depends on your personal preferences and priorities. If you enjoy vibrant atmospheres, water sports, and bustling tourist scene, the dry season is your best bet. However, if you prefer fewer crowds, lower prices, and more serene ambiance, the shoulder months or the wet season can provide a unique and rewarding experience.
