Sea Rovers, a Quest for Sunken Treasures

Your personal scuba adventure awaits!

Our Covenant

Is to offer you…
Premium service for all things water.

We cater only to small groups and offer personal service.

Six divers to a group absolute max, any more, and we’d be working for a living and our Sea Rovers Code would never allow that. So if you’re looking to meet 40 other like-minded people on one boat, then you’re at the wrong dive centre!

The Diving and Snorkelling is in the rich waters around Northwest Bali, where the Captain and Crew have spent many years exploring the depths to bring you the locations that thrill.

So why not join the Pemuteran Dive Pirates and experience some of the best that Bali has to offer?



Just imagine you are on the deck of the dive boat, just a small group of divers and snorkellers, skipping across the sheltered waters of North West Bali towards Menjangan Island. With the volcanoes of East Java like sentinels in the distance.

As you get closer, so the colour of the water changes from deep blue, to crystal clear turquoise. The dive boat slows and stops, you start to see the colours of the coral, you can see the myriad of different fish.

Your heartbeat increases with anticipation as you gear up and check. Then the dive master says, “Remember, just take your time, relax and enjoy.”

As soon as you step over the side into the water, it closes over you, it feels almost luxurious, warm. You descend deeper, the colours really start to appear, and the corals come into focus. Maybe you look up to see your family snorkelling above you, and you wave as you descend.

Drifting along a wall, stopping to watch and photograph a bright nudibranch. The Divemaster asks you to check your air, but because the pace is so easy, you have plenty. You carry on exploring, the divemaster points out an ornate ghost pipefish, how did he see that? Remember, he has been diving here for years.

Something flashing blue in a crevice catches your eye. What is it? You take a photo.

As you move up, movement catches your eye, children wave frantically at you pointing along the reef. Looking up, the colours become even brighter, and you see a turtle resting in the coral gardens that open up before your eyes. Different colonies all living in harmony in this fantastic, almost magical world – just part of the Sea Rover’s experience.

If you’re someone looking for a bit of high adventure and undersea treasures, then sign yourself aboard Matey, cos there’s diving & snorkelling to be done!
