Where else diving Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Gulf of Eilat, Bali, Komodo, Raja Ampat, Banda Sea, Red Sea, Fiji, Palau, Coral Sea, Galapagos, many Caribbean locations, New Jersey, Florida, National Aquarium, Dutch Springs, Silfra (Iceland), Panama (Pacific)
Closest Airport Denpensar, Bali (DPS) Getting There There are direct flights from several U.S. cities to major Asian hubs like Hong Kong and Beijing, with connecting flights to Bali (DPS).
