  • For our Diver Certification Courses PADI (et al) Success has teamed up with the Coral Triangle Initiative for Coral Reefs, Fisheries and Food Security (CTI-CFF); an official Marine and FisheryIndependent Training Centre appointed by the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries.
  • Here we have access to a state of the art 4.5m deep pool, especially designed for Diver Training.
  • The new purpose-built conservation centre provides the perfect setting to learn to dive whilst learning about our ecosystem and how best to sustain and save it.



Bali has a vast and varied array of dive sites in order to reach and dive them we use the right boat for the right sights. Some sites require larger more powerful vessels to reach whilst others are better accessed with smaller and more manoeuvrable boats.

A few examples of the range of vessels we use:

Land Transfers

As long as you are staying in the South side of Bali, we provide free hotel transfers and will pick you up and drop you back at your door each day. We pride ourselves on providing an in-comparable service, second to none.
We operate a range of comfortable, air-conditioned vehicles when conducting our dive programs; the size of which is dependent on the number of guests diving that day.


  • In order to operate in all areas of Bali, we partner with some of the most prestigious and exclusive resorts, villas and hotels to provide you with a range of accommodation during your stay. We even work with some guest houses so that those on a bit budget aren’t left out.
  • All our accommodation providers have been especially selected and vetted to ensure our guests receive the highest standards of comfort, safety and convenience.

Unique Diving

Not only does Success Dive Centre provide truly unique diving programs with specific site themes tailored that match your unique diver preferences, but we operate in all of the areas around Bali and will soon be expanding East to the sandy shores of Komodo…

    Most are extremely relaxed around divers which allow us to get up close to observe them. Nothing can quite describe a close and intimate experience of relaxing with Ocean’s most chilled creature in its natural habitat.
