Padang Bai Dive Sites


Blue Lagoon dive site is the most famous in Padang Bai. It is a perfect place for an easy fun dive, dive course or a night dive, macro photography and snorkeling in Bali. When you scuba dive in Blue Lagoon you will start with a great view over the white sand beach of the coast and shallow clear blue waters. Underwater you will encounter big healthy coral bommies teeming with life and great diversity of both hard and soft corals. There are many options on how the dive can be lead depending on what your interests are. If you head just a little north you will find a stretch of wall going as deep as 30m, overgrown mainly with soft corals and covered with plenty of hanging feather sea stars. On a day with good visibility you will just love this place. The gorgeous view combined with the amazing variety of marine species that inhabit this area is unforgettable. The best conditions are in the morning when the visibility is usually better. The dive is about 5 minutes’ boat ride from Padangbai beach.

The Channel dive site is situated just in front of Padang Bai beach, very close to the dive shops. It is reachable by boat in less than 2 minutes. It is possible to dive there with an open water/ CMAS 1 star but this location is better suited to advanced divers. It is a nice plateau about 18 metres deeps with numerous small caves where whitetip reef sharks love to rest during day time. The divers can also be swimming in the current which can sometimes be quite strong in the channel! Enjoy this wonderful Bali dive site.
