about me

emOcean Mario

I would like to introduce myself:
my name is Mario Esposito, I am 38 years old and born in Baden-Baden, southern Germany. Since 2009 I am a PADI instructor with now more than 5,000 dives, of which I have completed the most in Southeast Asia. I started in Thailand, first as a divemaster, later as a PADI instructor. My path led me on to Malaysia and the Philippines, until I finally arrived in Bali in early 2012 and immediately fell in love with the island. The nature, people and their traditions is an indescribably beautiful and mystical world simultaneously.
First i started working on Lembongan, one of the islands south of Bali, where i had the chance to get to know the waters and the well-known features
which makes it so famous.

Then I returned to the north coast of Bali, where I worked more than three years as the dive base leader of Alam Batu Beach Bungalow Resort. It was a very interesting and instructive time because I had the opportunity to explore the world of micro-organisms, the so-called Critters, to which I then specialized myself.

It is always a great pleasure to show mostly experienced divers, some creatures that they often never seen before. My tasks also included privat guiding for photographers, to look after and take care of them.

In my free time I like to go on the Gili Islands to dive and I was always surprised of how much there is to see under water. Each island has its own flair and special feature, whether on land or underwater. White sand, black, volcanic sand, the breathtaking diversity in the triangle, Lembongan, Gili Islands and North Bali is indescribable.

Since mid-2015, I am self-employed and I organize individual dive trips for two up to four people from dive beginners to professional photographers. I want to show participants the different dive sites as well as the sights and activities of each island wich fascinate myself again and again.

Why dive with me? Booking a flight to Indonesia and Bali is one thing. But how to continue to experience the most on a dive trip, another.
Of course you can all do it your self. The difference is that I put value by being there for you from the moment of your arrival until the end of the trip.
I will handle the “annoying things” such as transfers, accommodation, food, the diving organization etc. I will lead each dive and i am always happy to help or give you an good advice.

In the time in which I work, live and dive on Bali, I have gained a lot of knowledge and experience that I would like to pass on to you.
I look forward to welcoming you soon on this unique tour.
