Padang Bai Dive Site

Blue Lagoon

For those who’ve just started out, to the experienced diver looking for a challenge, the 5 dive sites located just off the beach at Padang Bai provide something for everyone. Blue Lagoon is our ‘house reef’, and will often be the first dive of the day. Each dive offers something slightly different, and even the dive guides are sometimes surprised by what they find. Included in these dive sites are a wreck, a large variety of corals and, if you’re lucky, a working submarine!

With the bluest waters in all of Bali, Blue Lagoon certainly lives up to its name. With sloping corals to the right side and a beautiful wall dive to the left side Blue Lagoon has something for everyone. The corals are in very good condition and the visibility is often the best on the island. There are many things to be found here from occasional reef shark to cowfish, cuttlefish and octopus. Padang Bai is also known as a good spot to find frog fish or maybe leaf scorpion fish. Blue Lagoon is a 5 minute boat journey from the main beach in Padang Bai. For those divers who have just started out, through to the experienced diver, the 6 dive sites located just off the beach at Padang Bai provide something for everyone.
