Wicked Parrot serves the best steak & guiness pie and fishermans pie and the Band is a Version of Broomes Pigram Brothers. Alladins crumbed mushroom and iced coffee is worth waiting a year for. Bennoes on the Beach make juicy sweet succulent hanburgers, Mangos on the beach have great salads and Baech Cafe had tasty dutch platters of morsels. WE book a table of 30 at Mangoes every year for Xmas and it cost less than our weekly shopping in Hedland.
Our Driver is Imade Redita (Peewee Best Tatoo in Bali) who waits on su like Royalty, no task too big or small, from ice at midnight, to the best daily rates to change money,to making flags, business cards . The list is endless

So cool . My wife is not a fan of snorkelling and we dont dive, so this was perfect. The masks are quite clear and there are tons of fish. Very cool. If you buy a picture, check out the CD rom they give you to make sure it's the right picture. We were sent home with other tourists' pics, but eventually we got the right ones! (Thanks Anne!). We booked on Balionlines.com for a discount.

I wanted to see more of the undersea world around Bali. I've plenty of experience snorkelling, surfing and boating. Unfortunately, fiance is not a strong swimmer and suffers from seasickness. We decided to take the safe option and ease her into exploring the ocean floor with a Seawalker expedition.

They picked us up in Tanjung Benoa at 8am and drove us to a resort in Sanur, where they're based. We changed, received a briefing, then onto a boat and 5 minutes out to the anchored 'mothership' (their words, not mine). We were fairly quickly outfitted, then the big, ugly Aussie was picked as the guinea pig. It was dead simple. On with the helmet, climb down the ladder and remember to keep breathing! If you tilted your head too much and the water level in the helmet rose, one strong exhale and it was back to normal. It was comfortable and provided very good visibility.

We spent 30 minutes at 5-8 metres under the water, escorted by two divers and one 'leader' in the same getup as us. Large schools of fish, sometimes completely obscuring our vision, hung around constantly. When I had a squeeze-bottle of fish food pushed into my hand, I realised why! One squeeze and you were the centre of the piscatorial universe. You could put pieces of fish food in your fingers and feed them by hand. The constant look of excitement on C's face proved it was a worthwhile exercise.

They took many photos and videoed the session. When we returned to base, they were available for sale on CD. We purchased the video and a photo. A simple but wholesome lunch was provided and transport back to our digs.

For anyone who is nervous about long boat rides or snorkelling, this is great alternative. It's safe, simple and requires no prior water-skills. It's clearly focussed at the Japanese market, I was the only westerner in the three groups I saw. We had a ball...it wasn't cheap at US$85 + photo and video, but we considered it worth the money.
