Davide D wrote a review Jun 2021
I went to Lembongan for 3 exiting diving days. I have got known about Tamarind Divers from one of my friend. Paul and Evy organised so good each day that I have managed to see all the most interesting diving spots available in the island. They have a very good knowledge of the undersea features of that area which every time I went diving I had the feeling to get all the information I needed to dive safely. The equipment provided was new and of good quality. All the members of the staff is so sweet and friendly that I found myself at ease from the first moment. If you want to have a great diving experience I really recommend to choose them.

We had one of the most incredible diving experiences with Tamarind Divers! Took our Advanced OW course with Paul and learned so much, we always felt safe and comfortable. Our trip was a tad bit complicated as we had several family and friends wanting to dive + snorkel during our course, but Evy did such a great job organizing our whole trip! She was also a great dive + snorkeling guide for the others, everyone came back very happy. Big kudos to Paul and Evy! They were very professional, helpful and informative. We would definitely come back and dive with them again!

We had lovely day with our dive at manta point & Crystal bay, all thanks to Paul & Evy😍 I liked how strictly they follow all safety & covid regulations and how professionally managed balance between me(OW) and my friend who never dived before, it was perfect ! I’ve done many discovery divings at several centers before getting my OW, and never seen such organised pre-instruction training as Evy did for my friend , thank you so much again and I would definitely come back !!

The 3 of us haven’t been back underwater since the start of the pandemic, and we couldn’t choose a better dive school to ease ourselves back into it than Tamarind. One in our group has 150+ dives in 20 countries, and he can confidently say that this is one of his best experiences diving for several key reasons: 1. Safety and attention to details: Paul and Evi are the warmest, most informative and attentive instructors. Having 2 relatively novice divers who needed refresher courses, Paul and Evi ensured their safety and comfort throughout all the dives. Regularly checking their position relative to the reef/current, air consumption, and any other potential issues. On board, Paul and Evi always provided tactical feedback on how we could continuously improve our diving technique. 2. Fun: Paul and Evi both knew all the dive sites in Lembongan and Penida very well. Conditions and timing are key to have safe and comfortable diving in these islands, and their 10 years of experience guiding in these waters meant we could focus on spotting all the beautiful reefs teeming with life. They helped us spot and explain so many unique wildlife - from the myriad of tropical reef fishes, to mantas, turtles, nudis and critters. In fact, Paul is an instructor for a mola-mola specialty course and he shared interesting facts about these cool fishes. 3. Bearing in mind the pandemic: Lembongan and Penida have been hit hard by the pandemic, and we were glad to be able to help support a key local business while keeping safe during our dives. It was great to be able to dive these commonly very busy sites with no other boats/divers around. The rest (equipment, boat, support staff) were also top notch. The diving all went seamlessly. Thank you Paul and Evi for having us - we can’t wait to go back!
