Dive trip to Bali

Bali is one of those tropical paradises most people only dream of visiting. Beautiful white sand beaches, clear water, lovely and warm, and for us scuba divers, some amazing marine life, and pristine coral.
The underwater adventures dive club has a trip running in September 2022, this was postponed from this year due to Covid as so many things have been. But because of the postponement, we have been given an offer of an even better route than normal so that instead of turning around halfway through our trip to head back to Bali, we can carry on to the Island of Maumere which will give us the opportunity to dive reefs which are not normally on the dive boat schedules and as such will be less disturbed and even more pristine and in great condition then you would expect from a dive trip.
As well as the amazing sights we will get to see underwater, we will also have the chance to land on Komodo Island and walk with the Komodo dragons, a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience that everyone would look forward to, the chance to walk with Dragons.
So why not treat yourself and join this amazing dive trip to the paradise of Bali, walk with Dragons, and dive the amazing reef systems this underwater wonderland has to offer

Just get in contact with us to book, but we only have 5 spots left so please don’t hang around and miss out

Cost of the trip
The full package with the flights, the first night in a hotel, full board on the Liveaboard, the Night in a hotel on Maumere, and the flight back to Bali would normally be £3600 but members of the Underwater dive club can get this trip for just £3350 with a deposit of £1000 on Booking and the rest payable by the beginning of June.






Covid 19
No one can say what, if any, covid rules will be in place as this trip is still far off but it might be an idea to stay at least one extra day in Bali just in case we need a Covid test to get back into the UK. This trip is booked through an ABTA travel agent so we will have full coverage should anything go wrong in terms of cancellations due to Covid restrictions

Dive trip to Nemo 33 and the Brussels Christmas Market 

Nemo 33 is a great winter dive trip as it is easy to get to on the Eurostar, cheap to dive and you don’t need to bring your own dive gear plus, it’s lovely and warm which is what we are looking for during the cold winter months.

This is a video from our last trip to Nemo 33 so you can see what its like 




The plan for this year’s trip is to travel out Friday evening, 3rd December, on the Eurostar catching the 18:04 train out of St Pancreas station London arriving in Brussels just after 9 pm. We will be staying at the moon hotel in the city centre which we have stayed at a few times before and is everything you could want from a city centre hotel, clean, nice beds and within walking distance of the Brussels social scene making it easy to find a restaurant and sample some of those famous Belgium beers.
Saturday we will head to Nemo 33 itself for a morning dive followed by a nice early lunch at the attached Thai restaurant followed by an early afternoon dive which should then allow us to spend the rest of the afternoon and early evening exploring Brussels world-famous Christmas market and then enjoying some of the local nightlife. Sunday Morning, we head back on the Eurostar catching the morning train getting back home early Sunday afternoon.



For this trip we would be looking at around £100 currently for the Eurostar tickets and around £125 for the accommodation and diving depending on the size of the group, the large the group the better the discount we can get so if you are interested in coming please let us know ASAP so we can confirm the price for everyone.
