I often get the question from people interested to make a booking – What is so special about Aquanauts, Bali Hai Cruises and Nusa Lembongan?
I love this question as it gives me a wonderful chance to show off!
First of all Bali Hai Aquanauts safety and of course fun ! –
Guides – All of our guides for both Scuba diving and Aquanauts are fully qualified PADI Divemasters or above. They have all been trained to the very highest international standards when it comes to safety and customer service. I am very happy to say we have the very best dive team in all of Bali!!
Equipment used – We use state of the art Aquanauts helmets that are from the original Seawalker design. What does this mean?? The design is very important number one for safety reasons and also for guest comfort. The original high quality design is heavy. Out of the water they weigh 36KG! That’s heavy, however underwater they are the perfect weight to keep you underwater and they don’t feel heavy at all. Because we use the original helmets we do not need to use extra weights which can be very dangerous if there is a problem with the helmets and you would need to bail and go up to the surface. If you have extra weights around your waist you would not be able to swim to the surface which could obviously be very dangerous! With Bali Hai Aquanauts its possible in an emergency to take the helmet off and swim up to the surface safely. We also use a compressor which allows you to stay underwater for long periods of time as we don’t use tanks like many other copy cats do. We spend 25-30 minutes underwater. Unlike some other companies (no names) who spend a mere 5 minutes underwater!
Bali Hai Cruises – Bali Hai has been around for more than 25 years offering amazing day trips to Nusa Lembongan. We offer a full package to Nusa Lembongan on day trips and we also have a fabulous beach front resort in Nusa Lembongan at Hai Tide Beach Resort. These packages include Return A/C hotel transfers and a variety of different cruises to the Island. We have 3 different high class boats that go to the island daily – The big jet powered catamaran which carries Reef and Beach Club Cruise passengers, Aristocat sailing catamaran that brings guests to our Beach Club and Sails Sensations which goes to The Anchorage day beach club also on Mushroom beach, Nusa Lembongan. Aside from the excellent Aquanauts activity that available with all Bali Hai Cruises there are many other activities that are included such as Snorkeling, water slide, semi submarine, village tour, unlimited banana boat rides, kids club, delicious BBQ / International Buffet lunch and if you choose the Beach Club Cruise relax on a beautiful tropical beach! With Bali Hai Cruises there is something to do for the entire family!
Nusa Lembongan – As mentioned previously we have been cruising to the stunning tropical island of Nusa Lembongan for more than 25 years and know the island like nobody else! It’s a short 1 hour baot ride from Bali which makes it a “must do” activity on most peoples trip to Bali! The waters surrounding the islands are crystal clear with an average visibility in the Aquanauts location of about 20 meters all year round, even in the rainy season! The reefs and the fish in the area are another reason that makes this such a special location! Nusa Lembongan and the surrounding islands of Nusa Penida is part of the Marine Protected areas in Indonesia. Top side the white sand beaches and coconut trees provide the perfect environment to relax on your well deserved holiday!
There you have it! Now come and see for yourself!
