Scuba diving Bali with Geko Dive in Padang Bai

Geko Dive Bali Logo Right 400px

Scuba diving Indonesia with Geko Dive Bali, Padang Bai's best PADI 5 star diver school: dive centre with beginner courses, safaris, packages, daytrips, excursions...

Over the years, the Geko Dive Team learnt what makes a great dive operation. Clean gas with good fills (210bar or change your tank), top-notch equipment, great facilities, own custom-made dive boats, respect for standards in diving, working with the best local and foreign dive guides and instructors, adaptability to divers’ needs and desires or care for the environment are but prerequisites.

While this is a good beginning, it is not enough! What is essential to the Geko Dive Team is that divers arrive as customers and leave as friends; then return as friends before departing as family. After all, spending great times together, both underwater and at the surface, is what diving is all about. This is why so many of our guests just keep on coming back and some decide to stay for good... And Bali is a great place to do just that!
