Our opinion on The Orca Dive Club, Candidasa:
Bali, the Island of the Gods... hosts an idyllic dive centre! Recently opened in southern Bali, the Orca Dive Club Candidasa belongs to a German company already working in Egypt. Located on the beach in Candidasa, this 5-star PADI dive centre has already hooked a lot of divers on Bali diving with its qualities: comfort, drying room for the gear, classroom with air-con and many teaching supports, a big swimming pool, perfectly maintained SCUBA gear, focus on safety, serious and professional dive instructors, safe boats and up-to-date air compressors, to name but a few! After spending a few afternoons on the terrace with a papaya juice or a 'copi jahe' (ginger coffee), you'll appreciate the very friendly and relaxed atmosphere...
Bali is a noted tourist haven: beautiful scenery with jungles, rice paddies, volcanoes and temples and obviously, a million great little restaurants! With dozens of dive sites, what will strike you first underwater is the diversity of marine life. Ranging from the biggest, like manta rays or mola molas, to the smallest, the weirdest most colourful nudibranchs ever or the pigmy seahorses, and through to the wrecks or the Marine Parks, there will be surprises everytime you go out for a dive around Bali!
To enjoy the whole island, Orca Dive Club has a centre in Lovina, to the north. So combine both dive centres and you will have experienced everything Bali has to offer! Topside for the non-divers or when you're done having fun in the water, you can hike around the rice fields, the temples, some amazingly beautiful beaches of white or black sand, climb up Mount Batur or Agung (active volcanoes)... Orca Dive Club can book and organise it all for you. A global approach to diving on holidays that we strongly recommend! Have fun!
