Bali has outstanding muck and critter diving. The best way to see a variety
of different things above and below, is to hook up with a company that will
do a "dive safari".  We had heard about Graham Abbott with Diving
4 Images from some friends who are very serious about their photograghy and
we were thrilled with our trip. In Candidasa there were cuttlefish, blue
spotted stingrays, lionfish everywhere, nudibranchs, many leaf fish,
humback cleaner shrimp, striped catfish, ribbon eels, devilfish,and lots of
anenomes with resident clownfish and shrimps. Tulemben is more serious muck
diving and it was hard to get out of the water, even after 4 long dives per
day.  We saw boxer crabs carrying eggs,hairy squat lobsters,lots of
harlequin shrimp,white-eyed morays, warty frogfish, many nudibranchs,bumble
bee shrimp, xeno crabs, orangutang crabs,cowries, fingered dragonets,
pegasus sea moths, flying gunards, demon stingers and more in just 2 days.
The last day we drove to North Bali where Graham knows a place to find the
mimic octopus. To date he has never failed.  We found 3 in 2 dives.
The Scuba Seraya Resort is adorable, with private courtyards that have a
big outside tub/spa, and a mini kitchen area.  The rooms are tastefully
done and steps from the beach.  There is a pool, massages are cheap, and
the food is healthy, tasty, and plentiful.

If you want to do some exploring top side, the Alila Ubud was excellent as
was the Pavilions Sanur. Both are great places for shopping and sight
seeing, and Sanur is close to the airport
