Underwater Photography in Bali

Bali Dive Sites Map

Bali Dive Sites Map

Bali is located at the very heart of the world’s richest marine biogeographic zone: The Indo-Pacific. The island receives very plankton-rich waters and so contains a stunningly diverse underwater ecosystem. Bali’s diving is a delight for underwater photographers and videographers.

Bali is renowned not only for its variety of dive locations but also for the extra-ordinary density and diversity of marine life, with many sites for macro or wide-angle photography.

While Bali’s fame as one of the top “must dive” destination for both amateur and professional underwater photographers has grown, so has AquaMarine’s reputation.

AquaMarine is known as The Go-To Bali Dive Company for underwater photographers and videographers.

Safaris (Dive Packages) for Underwater Photographers

Interested to photograph Mola-Mola (Ocean Sunfish) in Bali? Put it on your Wish List!

Guests sometimes choose to focus on a particular underwater photography subject, perhaps Mola-Mola or a particular group of marine life. We have conducted Bali Dive Safaris just for clams for example.

Generally clients send us their Wish List so we can advise on the most suitable dive locations and sites based on seasons, tides, and so on.

Safari Dive Packages for Underwater Photography

We have Safari Dive Packages designed specifically with photographers in mind. Programmes such as ‘Macro Photographers’ Dream‘ or ‘WYOS – Write Your Own Safari‘ are two of the most popular.

Of course, we are happy to customise a programme to suit your particular interests. Whether you concentrate on one or two dive sites or prefer to sample the range of dive locations around Bali, we’ll set it up just for you.

Expert Dive Guides / Spotters to Assist Photographers

Underwater Photography in Bali - Hairy Shrimp (Algae Shrimp) - phycocaris simulans

Tiny Hairy Shrimp (Algae Shrimp) - phycocaris simulans, Bali. AquaMarine's spotter guides are the best in Bali.

AquaMarine boasts some of the best spotter guides in Bali. This means that many dedicated underwater photographers, both repeat and new guests, choose to retain a Private Guide. With a Private Guide they can focus entirely on the unusual or hard-to-find critters they are seeking.

Our spotters have vast experience working with underwater photographers. They know where to look for the elusive critters you might want to see, and are totally familiar with the needs of our specialist divers.

In fact, quite a number of return guests actually schedule their visits to Bali based on the availability of a particular guide!
