Welcome to Geko Dive Bali, Padang Bai's premier PADI Scuba Diving Centre
First Scuba Dive Centre in Padang Bai
Geko Dive Bali first opened in June 1997. At 15 years of age, it is the oldest dive centre in Padang Bai. Geko Dive Bali is a PADI Resort since 1998 and became a PADI 5 Star Resort many years ago. This Bali dive centre has also recently become a TecRec Technical Dive Centre!
We are fortunate to have one of Bali's best dive staff! The Geko Dive Team speaks Balinese, English, French, German, Spanish, Indonesian and Japanese. There may be a bit of British, Australian and Thai here and there too. All of our dive guides are excellent divers, PADI Divemaster certified and fully insured, with years of working experience on Bali's numerous dive sites. For the Geko Dive Team, scuba diving remains a passion, first and foremost.
Fun Scuba Diving in Bali, Indonesia
Diving with Geko Dive Bali has always been fun and serene. To make sure that it stays this way, we have no intention on getting any bigger than we already are. Diving in large herds at dive factories is not a divestyle that the Geko Dive Team enjoys.
Scuba diving should be a personal experience! We therefore keep small dive groups (4 max and often less), with similarly experienced divers together. We also keep the same guests with the same PADI Divemaster for the duration of their dive holiday whenever possible. That way divers and diveguides get to know each other and work together towards the divers' satisfaction.
We believe all our guests deserve the ultimate diving adventure with utmost enjoyment and safety. The Geko Dive Team is always happy to hear what you would like to see underwater. Be it a macro critter, like frogfish, siagiani squat lobster, ghost pipefish, orangutan crab, tiger shrimp, Spanish dancer or nudibranches, or a large animal, such as manta rays, reef sharks, turtles, mola-mola oceanic sunfish or pelagic fish, we will do everything we can to find it for you in order for you admire it or take photographs. We can't work miracles but we certainly will try.
Green Dive Centre
We also strongly believe that scuba divers have a responsibility to the underwater world. This is why we do everything we can to help preserve and care for the environment in many different ways. Please see our conservation and education programs for more information.
Bali Beach and Weather Webcam in Padang Bai
Geko Dive Bali has finally set up their Bali beach and weather webcam. This little thing will allow not to miss any action happening in Padang Bai. It also enables you to find out what the weather is like in the bay straight from your computer.
The picture updates every minute, night and day, 7 days a week. It is best viewed directly from our dedicated webcam page. Hope you enjoy this & keep on coming back!
Discover Bali´s Amazing Underwater Wildlife
Swim with manta rays. These beautiful creatures grace us with their presence all year long at Nusa Penida.
Find the elusive mola-mola oceanic sunfish on one of our Mola-Mola Sunfish Safaris.
Come play with reef sharks. Although endangered in most places, whitetip reef sharks and even wobbegongs (in season) are still plentiful on our local dive sites and coral reefs.
PADI TecRec technical facility
In 2012, Geko Dive Bali became East Bali's PADI Asia Pacific first TecRec Dive Centre .
As a fully fledged technical diving facility, Geko Dive Bali offers a range of courses from PADI TecRec Discover Tec, through PADI TecRec Tec 40, PADI TecRec Tec 45, PADI TecRec Tec 50 and PADI TecRec Tec Sidemount.
Support for the Community
We also adhere to a philosophy of creating employment opportunities in the local community. This is obvious in the level of service that you will receive when you are here. You will never have to carry a tank, set or clean your equipment while you are diving with us, if that is what you wish. This high level of service still comes at highly competitive rates.
