all equipment was faulty/dangerous. Paid for the advanced open water. After 6 months still not registered on padi. The theory part was held in a busted up shack. Instructors name was Made Arnita. Would definitely not recommend Mola Mola dive

Used the Mola Mola guys to dive at Talumben. The van they picked me up in was a bit dodgy however when we got to the site they were great and very professional. Overall I was really happy with the service.

Tghere were several good and bad points with my experience with mola mola dive center. First the bad: I booked thru a tour organizer and feel that i paid top rate prices for average equipment. I was told I could pay the balance due by Visa on the morning of the dive. As there was no dive shop, only a... More

I was shopping around Seminyak for a dive to Tulamben the next day. The larger, highly rated Tripadvisor shops and a few friends recommended weren't scheduled to go to the wreck so I had limited options. I booked Mola Mola from an agent on the street despite some of the bad reviews I read. First, my 7:00-7:15 pickup turned out... More

Hi, Last week I had the Open Water Diving Course at Mola Mola. I am grateful to note it with excellent as I was very happy with the instructor (Riadi) and I managed to learn even more than I was aware the course will teach me. They included transfer with a good car with AC and also lunch. Theory, practice... More

Staff were nice though they are not professionals. Diving is the experiment with lots of danger and they are not prepared about it at all. Half of the equipment were broken and air was leaking from regulator, and they don't have enough amount of snorkels. If you want to risk your safety for saving pennies, you can go. But if... More

When I booked my trip I was very excited to have my first scuba diving experience. The reviews on trip advisor then turned my excitement into slight anxiety. Luckily, the negative reviews could not be more wrong. I did my open water 4 dive qualification with mola mola and the experience and teaching was fantastic.the only slight negative was that...

We were been picked up by the company 8:15am from Ubud and it took almost 2.5 hours to reach Tulamben diving point. The coach taught us how to breath in the water and release the pressure in the sea. I was so nervous the first time diving but I saw so many beautiful fished and creatures under the sea. The... More

Got picked up from the hotel in a dodgy white van with air con that struggled and i think only had three gears. Finally made it the two and a half hours to the pebble beach. The dive guides were very helpful and the quality of gear was standard for bali. I wouldn't choose this company if i was inexperienced... More

My friend and I went diving with Mola Mola Dive Center this week. While the actual diving experience was great (clear water, nice coral/fish, two amazing manta rays), everything else was shady, incompetent, lazy or dangerous. We were picked up at our hotel in the morning and taken to the dive center. When we arrived, the guy at the center... More
