UNDERWATER PHOTOGRAPHY IN BALI

Close to Singapore and made possible by the number of daily departure flights to Bali, Bali has become a preferred diving destination for underwater photographers among Singaporeans.

Diving in Bali is excellent, and Bali underwater photography is even better, with many great wide-angle and macro subjects underwater. The diving here is easily accessible from shore or a short boat ride, often at a good price. Critters, wrecks, walls, coral, muck-diving, schooling fish, pelagics – Bali has it all. It would be difficult to find a better mix of diving options combined with excellent food, accommodations and culture. For Bali logistics, see the end of this article.

Macro life in bali is great, and you can see frogfish, many nudibranchs, cuttlefish, stingrays, leaf scorpionfish, pipefish, eels, mantis shrimp, pygmy seahorses, larger seahorses, various octopus, bobbit worms, muck creatures, most of the various info-pacific fish, and the list goes on and on.

One of the common sites we introduce to divers for their first underwater photography course is usually at Tulamben. Large fish, macro, wrecks, walls, muck, reef photography – it’s all here. The Liberty wreck can be dove many time for wide-angle and macro opportunies. The Liberty wreck is 100 meters long, 6 meters deep at the top, and 28 meters deep at its deepest point. It is teeming with life, large and small. Most of the wreck can be experienced at 10-22 meters depth.

Another dive site that we frequent is Seraya. Marine life commonly seen at the seraya dive site include seahorses, small frogfish, ghost pipefish, and a beautiful large moray eel surrounded by several species of shrimp. Boxer crabs, tiger shrimp, and harlequin shrimp can also be seen but may be more difficult to find.

Getting from Singapore to Bali (Denpasar)

There are numerous direct flights from Singapore’s Changi International Airport (SIN) to Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS) daily and both international airlines and budget airlines operate this route. This makes Bali, Indonesia very accessible from Singapore. The average flight time is approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes which is ideal for divers looking for short trips and do not like the long bus rides to traditional nearby locations like Tioman. The airline that we suggest is Royal Dutch Airline – KLM.
Recommended Flight:
Singapore (SIN) – Denpasar (DPS) : 1735hrs – 2015hrs (Daily)
Denpasar (DPS) – Singapore (SIN) : 2130hrs – 2359hrs (Daily)
Upon arrival, the transfer to the hotel or villa of choice will be between 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on the location. The city centre, Kuta is approximately 1 hour away from the airport.
