  • When is monsoon season?

We will be there in the middle of monsoon season but Bali is such a lucky place that even in this time of year it usually only rains about an hour a day in the afternoons so it’s a good idea to bring a rain jacket in case you need to be outside at this time.

  • How much money should I bring?

Remember that during the weekend only breakfast is included so you will need to consider between 10 to 30 USD depending on where you want to eat. If you are planing to do fun dives on the weekends the price varies on where you want to go but consider around 30 USD per dive. aces on the island. 

Consider that captains and dive masters depend a lot on tips, we recommend to bring extra money for that not only for the weekends but also for all the dives you do during the course if you wish to tip.
