About us

Southern Dreams Diving Club (SDDC) is a Spanish and French dive center located on the quiet beach of Buitan, south of Candidasa. It is a strategic place for scuba diving in Bali.

SDDC was founded in 1998, being one of the pioneer dive centers in Bali. Later, in 2016 Patricia and Ludo reopened its doors. We are a team of diving Instructors from France and Spain. We have been trained not in one, but in four different dive agencies: CMAS, ADIP, PADI and SSI. Along with diving training, we have decades of experience in scuba diving, both in guiding and teaching.

You can rest assured, you will have an unforgettable, safe, and fun diving experience with us!

Fun dive trips for certified divers

We organize daily tours for certified divers who wish to explore the stunning and unique underwater world of Bali. Snorkelers are also welcome.
