BINTANG DIVERS started in July 2007 in Nusa Dua as a scuba diving specialty center that thoroughly guides small groups and meets the purposes of all customers. And we have held scuba diving tours throughout all dive sites of Bali.
In 2015, moved the dive shop to Amed (Eastern Bali). Mainly guides the Amed, Tulamben, and Seraya areas, we continue to operate without changing our corporate philosophy.
In recent years, digital cameras and action cameras have rapidly become widespread, and the number of divers who enjoy “underwater photography” and “underwater videography” has increased. We are focusing on discovering underwater creatures for macro photography, which are especially requested, so that all customers can take pictures and take video underwater with satisfaction.
Our dive shop provides of comfortable and convenient services. But most important thing is quality of team. Professionals need to research and training every day. Our team are using time to searches the marine organisms and training of underwater guide.
Team BINTANG continue efforts until all customers say ” You are great! BINTANG is best!”.
Help save our earth
Scuba diving must have a bountiful sea. While various environmental problems are being talked about through news and social media, we are always thinking and implementing what we can do to deal with environmental problems related to the sea.
Participation in a music video that asks about environmental issues
In 2018. BINTANG DIVERS was involved in the music video shoot for British musician Novo Amor. This is the work that inspired us to get involved in environmental issues.
Most of this music video was shot in the ocean in front of BINTANG DIVERS. Our staff and local professional divers moved a 13-meter-long whale made of bamboo and plastic trash as if it were alive. We were also in charge of directing and collecting the plastic trash dumped in the ocean, which is the main message of this video.
Artificial reef installation
In 2020, the Bali government-led artificial reef installation plans were implemented in Nusa Dua, Sanur, and Pemuteran to stop the decline of coral reefs in Bali.
Also, here in Amed, an artificial reef was created mainly by local professional diver group P3A (Perkumpulan Pemandu Penyelam Amed) and installed in the sea in front of BINTANG DIVERS.
Along with this, we have created an artificial reef that imitates the robot soldier that appear in the Japanese anime “Castle in the Sky”. We installed it at a depth of 7m in front of BINTANG DIVERS and planted coral.
You can observe the growth of corals and the many fishes that gather on the artificial reefs.
Plastic bottle garbage problem
We have discontinued the provision of commercially available plastic bottles of drinking water to our customers.
However, hydration before and after diving is essential. We will continue to provide drinking water free of charge, but you will need to prepare your own bottle for drinking water.
We apologize for the inconvenience, but thank you for your understanding and preparation in advance.
We sell stainless steel bottles in partnership with the environmental protection organization TRASH HERO. The advantage of this bottle is that you can use the service for free at the drinking water replenishment station set up by the same operator as us.
In Bali, in addition to Amed, you can receive this service in more than 80 locations such as Sanur, Ubud, Canggu, and Lembongan Island. Similar services are also available on other islands in Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia. (As of October 2021)
