I dived with Into the blue last week, and despite having an early meeting time was greeted by the staff with instant smiles and friendliness. Within 15 minutes the blond lady at reception had our whole groups paperwork sorted, gear packed, and introductions given.
There was a groupf of about 7 of us, and we all got to know eachother and the rest of the staff very well throughout the day. Everyone of the staff was friendly and happy to lend a helping hand, and they were very thorough and professional throughout the day.
The dive conditions didn't end up being so good, but the skipper GP was wise enough to call off the second dive for safety and we were sorted out back at the shop with rescheduling and refunds.
Very well done, and I would highly recommend for any divers visiting Cape town. I will be back to dive with Into the blue again!!!
Bali, “The Island of the Gods”, is certainly a divine place to get your gear on and go for a dive. The diversity of marine life and dive sites is exceptional. One day can be filled with the magnificent Oceanic Sunfish, or Mola Mola, around the waters of Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Penida, whilst the next you can be searching for pygmy seahorses in the northern area of Bali. The diversity of soft and hard corals in Bali, and Indonesia, is unmatched anywhere else in the world.

Amed Jemeluk Bay. This area is great for finding macro life with seahorses, ghost pipe-fish, frog-fish, crabs, shrimps and loads of nudibranch. Keep a look out for turtles and reef sharks that are often seen here in the deeper parts of the site.
Padang Bai Blue Lagoon. Blue lagoon has some very nice shallow reefs that are perfect for photography dives and night dives. There are huge coral bommies that start in around five meters of water. The fish life is amazing! This dive site is very popular with photographers due to the depth and quality of the marine life.
