A true Work/Life/Travel Balance

This year, I have noticed an interesting trend with some of our guests: We’ve had people who are officially ‘working from home’ (but actually are here in Bali) joining Day Trips and PADI courses, and booking custom-made Safaris 🙂

Early Bird Discount

If you make a booking (for diving up to 31/12/24) and pay your deposit before 31 March 2024, you’ll receive a 10% discount and your price will be fixed. Info@AquaMarineDiving.com to start the process!

Please also sign-up for our Monthly Update (yes, separate from this Quarterly Bali eNewsletter).

AMD-B doesn’t upload Blog Posts very often but we have a few new ones online: ‘Group Trips’, ‘How Plastic Pollutions impacts Coral Reefs’, and also for ‘Muck Diving in Lembeh Strait’.

Please enjoy your end of year break, whether you’re spending it with friends and/or family, volunteering, somewhere quiet, or travelling – or even scuba diving! Remember: This life is short, live it to the full!

AMD-B News

Blue Project by AMD-B


‘Tackling Threats to Shark Populations’ was the title of AMD-B’s final 2023 Webinar Talk on 24 November. Hearing the experts reporting real-data based on annual shark catch, it was heartbreaking to realise that for centuries we have allowed such unsustainable fishing practices.

Maintaining our commitment to sustainability, AquaMarine continues our Beach Clean-ups and Coral Monitoring initiatives. On our latest ‘Adopt a Dive Site’ UW Clean-up at The Jetty outside Padangbai, our team removed a third of the abandoned fishing net that has accumulated. We will remove the rest as soon as possible!

2023 PADI Divemaster Internship


Abi & Mardia End-of-Programme Report

Abi: “This was the last month of my PADI DM Intern programme. I feel I have grown a lot. I started to know my character as a professional diver. Become more mature, more sensitive and knowledgeable, I am more capable because I have become more than I was when I first start this programme. This Divemaster programme is just the beginning, a good beginning and I am very grateful to AquaMarine Diving – Bali for this opportunity. I can say, I really did go through the “Zero to Hero” programme.

Mardia: “I have been wondering how it would feel to reach this, my last day as an intern at AquaMarine. At this very moment, I feel overwhelmed with emotions. It hits me harder than I ever imagined. My experience as a Divemaster intern at AquaMarine has been a life-changing journey. This opportunity has allowed me to grow both personally and professionally. As I bid farewell to this chapter of my life, I am filled with a mix of emotions, but most importantly, I am grateful for the chance to have been part of this incredible adventure. I look forward to continuing my exploration of the underwater world in the future.

2024 PADI Divemaster Internship


This year’s chosen intern is Fahmi!

Fahmi is from Bandung – a final year Marine Science student at Udayana University.

He believes that being a Divemaster will connect his passion with diving and his academic journey 🙂

His biggest dream is to explore the depth of the oceans and share how amazing they are with many people.

Fahmi will join AMD-B on 08 January – and so, the adventure begins!

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.
