The average dive will have you seeing all sorts of fish, eels and rays as well as the odd shark, turtle and perhaps even a whale shark. Visibility in these waters is fantastic with 20 to 30 metres visibility the norm, making for a great underwater adventure.

There are a number of dive shops on Pulau, the majority being in Iboih. The dive shop that we’ve used along with many others is called Rubiah Tirta Divers, located half-way along the jungle track in Iboih. This dive shop is quite popular with both local and foreign tourists and everyone we have spoken to about this place has been happy with their experience, as were we.

Intro dives are 40 euros whereas dives for certified divers start at 20 euros and include all rental gear, a guide and a boat. If you’re looking at an Open Water course, it’ll set you back 268 euros. Prices for Indonesians are cheaper, which leads us to believe that you may be able to negotiate better prices if you’re doing a lot of diving with this one company.
