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!

Geko: a safety-conscious dive operator in Bali since 1997

Over the last few years, new dive operators on Bali are mushrooming. With so many new entrants on the market, it can be hard for divers to make an educated choice. Safety should be one of the first aspects to look at when choosing a Bali dive centre. Here are questions you can ask to gauge a Bali dive centre's seriousness and safety.

Are dive boats self-operated or leased for the day? Does the dive centre bring oxygen on every trip? Are the guides and instructors certified and renewed? Is the boat crew First Aid trained? Does the Bali dive centre fill its own tanks? Is the compressor filtration changed as per manufacturer's recommendations? Is the rental equipment recent and well maintained? Are there Emergency Action Plans for each site?
