We would have asked this crew to take us to Nusa Penida but there was not time. The visibility at Nusa Dua was about 9 feet. Maybe we are spoiled but we prefer seeing clearly. We cannot fault the crew, they had said that it would not be so great and I was tempted to rate this 5-stars but subjectively I am comfortable with four. We would certainly come back to these guys but certainly not back to Nusa Dua.

Dear AbleDanger,

Thank you so very much for taking the time to post a Trip Advisor review for us!

We are absolutely delighted that you were happy with the service and standards of our dive centre.

It's too bad you didn't have a full day to dive Nusa Penida as the visibility in that area is usually crystal clear. We do try to be completely transparent with our guests about the conditions of the dive sites and anything else on the day. That's why your instructor did advise that visibility on that day wasn't ideal and did give you the option to cancel the dive at no charge.

Nusa Dua due to currents and the shallow reef can be very clear but can also be murky at times. The visibility also changes with the tide, the diving is best done at high tide in the area.

Thanks again for your kind review and we hope to see you again back in Bali for some diving in Nusa Penida and Bali's other better dive sites!

With warm regards and heartfelt thanks,
Nyoman

Bali is simply outstanding for some snorkelling, scuba diving, sea walk, paraglidingh, jet skiing, and all different types of water sports.
I will strongly recommend this place to all the adventure and water sport entusiats.
This place offers value for money adventures.
One needs to be aware of the prices being offered at different places for different sports. Its highly competitive. Do not go by the printed price lists shown by the agents. You can bargain upto 50% of the published price.
Enjoy and have a great time!!!

Dear CA Santosh L,

Thank you so very much for taking the time to write such a wonderful Trip Advisor review for me and my team!

My boyfriend and I came to Bali for two weeks on vacation. We booked through our hotel our introductory dive with Bali Jet Set. We were connected with Alit as our instructor - he was awesome!

I was extremely nervous and he coached me through so patiently. The first dive was fabulous and a few days later we took our next two dives with him to a shipwreck about 2 hours north of Nusa Dua. My nerves had subsided and we had the best dives. So many colorful fish!

Alit was very informative and assisted us tremendously in helping us learn about Scuba diving and even drove out to our hotel in Ubub to bring us a training manual. When we relocated to Nusa Dua he drove there as well to assist in our Scuba certification paperwork. Alit was such a great piece of our trip and I truly appreciate everything he did to make our trip special.

Bali Jet Set has a great operation and they pickup and drop you off wherever you may be. Everything felt safe and clean and we had an amazing time.

Dear Jennifer M,

Wow thank you so very much for taking the time to post such a kind Trip Advisor review for me and my small business!

I'm so pleased that you enjoyed your time with us and had a great time diving in Bali!

My business is quite different than other dive centres in that everything we do is private so you can take your time and go at your own pace, no need to worry about being in a big group.

I'm also very happy that you were pleased with the service that Alit provided. He is one of our senior PADI instructors and always works hard for us. I will be certain to show him your review.

Again thank you so much for your review and for diving with us!

Have a wonderful 2017!

With warm regards and heartfelt thanks,
Nyoman

We were staying at the Nusa Dua Beach Hotel, and we saw the advertisements for Bali Jet Set.
We decided to go and make an afternoon of it, and the children absolutely loved it! We did Parasailing, jet skiing and the banana boat. A friend had told us that parasailing was a risk,but we decided to do it anyway, only to find it was an extremely safe and enjoyable experience. The staff are very nice and polite, and definitely make sure you have the best time you can have. The jet skiing was equally as fun, and the instructor came on with us to make sure we have an enjoyable ride. You drive the jet ski, so you can decide how fast you go, even though they do encourage you to push your limits! Only the children did the banana boat and the parasailing, and they wouldn't stop talking about it after the experience! The service includes the club facilities and a private mini bus from your hotel to the club.

Overall, we had an amazing time here, and we will definitely be coming back soon! The kids will never forget the afternoon.

We turned up in tanjun benoa in a taxi from our hotel in seminyak with no booking (other than a quick phone call in the morning to check prices)
Hard to find place, our driver had to ring a couple of times and I admit we were all wondering where the hell we were going....but it turned out great
They are the only operator On the west side of TB and the space is a revelation.
If I had a criticism it was a bit rushed - parasailing straight onto the flying fish and then a ten minute break back at base before the donut so all in all we were probably only there 90 mins.
As with all the providers the actual time parasailing is short - 5 mins max, but I guess it gives you the appreciation of what it's all about.
The flying fish we had two 'flights' per two people (we r family of 4) which was fine but again a further third flight would have been great.
The donut was the highlight for me - ten
Mins for all four of us sliding around behind the boat.
Is it worth the 5 million rupiah to do it all....I guess if you put it in perspective per person for three activities it's not that bad...but it's an expensive day out.
Nice gesture from the company to drive us back to seminyak without us having to get our hotel driver back down or find our own taxi (but we did spend a lot of money so.....not unexpected!)
The staff were great, they fitted us in easily enough and I can see why their reviews are so good.
If cost was no factor I would recommend wholeheartedly- if you want to find water sports cheaper just head to the beaches of kuta or nusa dua and bargain.

Dear tonyjcrane,

Thank you so much for posting such a wonderful Trip Advisor review for us!

We are delighted that you enjoyed the water sports activities and that you had a wonderful day with us!

We do offer transportation from/to your hotel which is inclusive in our prices. Our centre is a bit difficult to find and it's about a 5 minute drive through some narrow windy roads and the village until you finally emerge on our beach. We chose the area because it is more private and there is much less water traffic in the area. It's also free of beach hawkers so you can relax without being bothered.

We never want a guest to feel rushed. In fact, we normally tell guests they can go at their own pace. We will speak to your guest relationship manager who was with you on the day to remind him. We have private beach chairs so that guests can relax in between activities, have a drink, swim in the pool, etc.

You do have to be careful in Bali with any activity as nothing is regulated. The quality and safety of the activities is left to the operator. There have and continue to be many accidents in Bali with activities, including water sports. We maintain our equipment properly and much of it is actually imported complying to USA standards for life jackets (eg. USCGA approved) instead of the locally made ones which will actually become water logged if you stay in the sea long enough. We have to go outside the country two times per year to buy equipment such as wakeboards, life jackets, camera's, etc.

Thank you so much for booking with us and we do hope to see you again! The good news is that we do offer an additional 10% VIP discount for returning customers who support our small business. Just give us a call the day before and we will organise the transportation from/to your hotel at no additional charge.

Thank you so much!
Nyoman and the Bali Jet Set Team
