October - December 2023 Bali eNewsletter

Message from Annabel

I can’t quite believe we’re not only looking at the end of 2023, but already have our Low Season Special Offers for 2024 – details below!

Our 2024 ‘Best of Bali Dive Safaris’ (known as “BoB” in the office!) are online.

I’m writing this on 18 September: AquaMarine’s 24th Anniversary. We have a Blog Post to celebrate – written by Mardia, one of our two 2023 Zero-to-Hero PADI Divemaster Interns.

Amazingly, the 2023 Mola-Mola (Ocean sunfish) Season has not yet peaked! We’re seeing them all around Nusa Penida, including Manta Point, as well as along Bali’s east coast at Mimpang, Tepekong and (my personal favourite) Biaha.

In fact, when I was last at Biaha, we had an extremely curious MM checking us out! I’d never put myself that close to a MM but it just kept ascending and heading towards us!

We’ve also been over to the east side of Nusa Penida (in my head ‘The Dark Side of The Moon’!) – so lovely to dive without other boats/divers around!


Applications are open for AMD-B’s 2024 PADI DM Internship for Young Indonesians. This annual Zero-to-Hero Internship Programme is one way AMD-B ‘gives back’ to the dive community by aiming to raise the quality of Indonesian Dive Guides.

Finally, if you are looking for an excellent gift for a friend or loved one, look no further than an AMD-B Voucher! You can buy for a specific value or particular gift, eg: a PADI course, or Day Trip. Just let us know on

There’s still time to join us this year but if not, then we look forward to welcoming you back to Bali’s phenomenally diverse dive sites next year!

2023 PADI Divemaster Internship


Divemaster Internship July – September Progress

Abi & Mardia – are now PADI Divemasters: Trained by AMD-B’s “best of the best” since January, after a very intense 9months, they passed the final assessment with Wayan (Director of Diving Operations) marking their final step to professional certification.

Under the supervision of our Senior Dive Staff, they are now working full-time as AMD-B Dive Guides – as well as leading some of our Snorkelling Trips. Working as part of AMD-B’s dive team enables them to build upon and practise their skills; their knowledge and experience of marinelife and diving conditions around Bali improves daily.

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.
