Holiday season: whole year

Dive season: whole year; we especially recommend the months March until June as well as September until December. Dive conditions may be worse in January/February as result of the rainy season with the north west of Bali generally being the most dry area in Bali. In July and August sometimes there can be high waves at the shore; shore diving might not be possible then.

At these times our boats will start and end at the small Pemuteran harbor. In just a few minutes we will transport our divers by car. For this season we recommend to use a light outdoor jacket for the boat trips because of the fresh wind.

As water temperatures are between 26 to 29 degrees Celsius, a 3mm to 5mm wetsuit will fit. Exception: Secret Bay; there the water temperature sometimes can fall down to 22 degrees Celsius.

Therefore we recommend wearing a short wetsuit in addition to your normal wetsuit. (This Shorty can be hired at the dive center).
