Message from Annabel

Dear AquaMarine Diving – Bali Associate

In light of Bali re-opening and seeing that many people have the same/similar questions, I was prompted to write a Blog Post ‘AquaMarine Diving – Bali Today’. Hopefully this will be the start of AMD-B doing regular blogs so that we do a better job of keeping you all updated.

On that subject! I was genuinely surprised (and thrilled) when our PADI Regional Manager, Neil Davidson, presented AMD-B with an award for ‘Outstanding Contribution to Ocean Health’. It’s so good to feel AMD-B’s efforts and commitment have been noticed 😊

Finally, please remember to check AMD-B’s (very!) Special Offer to support PADI Women’s Dive Day (Sat 16 July) – it’s valid until 30/06/23, our 2022 Mola-Mola (Ocean sunfish) Specials, and what we have planned for AWARE Week (17-25 Sept).

I could keep writing but I think it’s all covered elsewhere in this July-Sept eNews!

Hope to see you here in Bali later this year 😊

June 2022 Beyond Bali eNews

Dive Indonesia – Explore Indonesia Through Us


AquaMarine Diving - Bali’s June 2022 ‘Beyond Bali Diving Inspiration’ eNews takes us to the Gili Islands, located off NW Lombok

The three Gili islands: Trawangan, Air and Meno, located north west of Lombok (directly east of Bali) are definitely worth a visit. The Gilis (as they are known) are renowned for coral-fringed white sandy beaches, crystal-clear waters and an unhurried pace. All 3 islands pride themselves on having no motorised transport to break their peaceful serenity, so making them the perfect island getaway.

Gili Trawangan is the largest island and offers diving for all levels. Here you will see stunning floral gardens that are flourishing with biodiversity. The marinelife varies from large (reef sharks, Manta rays, turtles) to schools of fish such as trevally, all the way down to pygmy seahorses, pipefishes, frogfish and more.

Weather: Most people prefer to visit during the dry season, May to October. However, if you prefer your holidays less crowded (or can only go Nov to April), you’ll find it usually only rains for a couple of hours in the late afternoon. Note: Visibility is affected by rain 😊

How to reach The Gilis

Domestic flights: There are daily flights into mainland Lombok from different places within Indonesia.

International flights: Pre-Covid, several overseas airlines flew direct to Lombok however, at present, the only international flights are from Kuala Lumpur.
From Lombok’s airport, you take land transport and then it’s just a short boat transfer to The Gilis.

If you’re in Bali then by far the easiest, and quickest, option is by using the fast transfer boats. These leave from various points in South Bali (Sanur, Serangan, Padangbai) – my personal choice is Bluewater Express: Well-designed boats, great service and crew, convenient schedules, and extremely high safety standards.

FYI: Current short-haul flights to Bali each day: From Singapore: 10; Kuala Lumpur: 5; Perth: 4.

As the world continues to open up, more airlines will add more flights 😊

Many PADI courses can be done online and this is an ideal way for you to learn. It is entirely flexible for those with busy schedules and you can commit as much or little time to it as you would like. It's also a great way for you to improve your knowledge of diving during the times you cannot dive, with PADI eLearning you don't have to wait until your next dive to improve your diving.
