If you’ve always stared forlornly at your friends splashing around in the sea just because you’re not a swimmer, the time has come for you to shine. Surfing and diving might be prime activities in Bali, but that doesn’t mean only swimmers get to have all the fun. Bali Seawalker’s unique helmet allows even non-swimmers to experience marine life, and right from the ocean bed! Bali Seawalker is an underwater activity that offers everyone an opportunity to enjoy an underwater experience with the minimum of equipment. The ‘walks’ utilize a specially-designed helmet that is connected to oxygen tanks aboard a boat, providing participants with a constant flow of air to breathe underwater.
Participants with prescription lenses need not take their glasses off to enjoy the activity due to the convenient helmets, and will remain dry from the chin up throughout the tour. Depths are approximately seven metres, where you will soon be able to observe colourful schools of fish, coral reefs and marine life. Bali Seawalker operates at two main sites off Sanur and Tanjung Benoa.
The underwater tours take approximately 30 minutes, and the standard package usually includes hotel transfers for a minimum of two persons, refreshments and soft drinks, Seawalker gear, Japanese standard safety equipment, certified and experienced guides and insurance coverage. The Seawalker tours can be enjoyed by all ages from 10 years up. No diving experience or swimming skills are necessary. The tour is an eye-opener for those with no prior underwater experience, and it also provides participants the opportunity to interact with marine life.
It is an extraordinary approach that makes it easy to discover the underwater realm without having to deal with bulky diving gear. Guides provide full instructions before setting out to sea and taking the plunge.
