For the ones of you who are even more passionate about the underwater life, we can put you in touch with one of the best dive masters in Candidasa, who happens to be a former Ashram member himself as well. Therefore, you can be sure that not only safety is his hightest maxim – you can also fully trust his expertise on dive sites as well as experience teaching any level of divers, from absolute beginners to dive masters. If you have always wanted to give it a try, but don’t know if you want to invest in a certification yet, you can opt for a discovery dive where all necessary materials and instructions will be provided. And where else would it be better to start this stunning activity in the warm waters off the Balinese coast, being full of all the exotic fish you could dream of.

If you decide to do a PADI course, you can also do that in the range from Discovery Scuba Diver (1 day) or obtain your certificates for Open Water Diver (4 days), Advanced Open Water Diver (2-3 days), up to Rescue Diver and Dive Master (upon request).

Whether you want to be “finding Nemo” or “Dory” for a start, use your existing certification to visit the manta rays across at Nusa Penida, dive at one of the best wrecks in the world, or try and meet the impressive sun fish, you can have it all at our door step. If you are interested, just contact us via email beforehand or talk to an Ashram member.



“I have taken advantage of my stays at the Ashram to get certified and explore dive sites around Canidasa, Nusa Penida and Tulamben. It was an extremely positive experience throughout with a great emphasis on safety and best value for money. If you have always wanted to try how it feels to breath under water, you could not find a better place or teacher.” Franziska, November 2017
