While the diving at Padangbai tends to be easy (sometimes used for Open Water courses and popular with snorkellers), experienced divers and photographers also thoroughly enjoy the site. Visibility throughout the year is 15-20m, there is sometimes a little surge and a mild current but the bay is fairly protected.
A 1 hr to 1hr 20 min bus ride from South Bali will get you to Padangbai. When you have arrived at the destination, a boat will be needed in order to explore the dive sites.
