Bali is unique, Bali is unmatched

There is no other place like Bali in this world. A magical blend of culture, people, nature, activities, weather, culinary delights, nightlife, and beautiful accommodation. Bali is rated as one of the best travel destinations in the world by countless websites, review portals, and travel magazines each year – for very good reasons. 


We will do 6 Dives or 6 snorkeling adventures.  (You don't have to be certified to dive, but it is strongly recommended.  


During our dives we will take part in  Coral Propagation


Hard Coral propagation with Ocean Quest:

Dune Atlantis guides are trained by The Ocean Quest team to provide Coral Propagation course is a certification our guides have to teach you the techniques and methodology of coral rehabilitation designed by Ocean Quest. The training shows you how to handle correctly the hard corals in the processes of restoration.The plan is to rehabilitate hard coral in Sanur area using the techniques taught by Ocean Quest.


We will collect damaged pieces of hard coral, cut them in small pieces and we will fix them to a natural support we can find in the gardening area. This process is really environmental friendly as we use all available resources in our environment without adding any structure. It is an eco friendly way for Coral Propagation which also demands more maintenance. But the most important part is that this is a real study field for all the divers, seeing the positive impact on a new growing reef.


Soft Coral Gardening – Ocean Gardener:

We will take part in the Ocean Gardener Coral Nursery in Sanur. This nursery is the first soft coral farm created for reef restoration maintained through a sustainable way, using principles of ecology and the study of the relationship between organisms and their environment. In short, we participate to farming the right species in the right environment.


Ocean Gardener was founded in 2016 thanks to 20 years of coral farming experience in Indonesia in accordance with local and international regulations and with local communities.

Over the years, Ocean Gardener became a real and successful alternative livelihood for thousands of coastal families but it also contributes to educating locals and tourists about sustainable coral farming practices and the importance of corals and its ecosystem.

Join Ocean Gardener with our Dune Atlantis team and help us to replenish and restore damaged reefs in Sanur area.

I had a wonderful experience on this trip with Bookbag Tours! It was well organized and I was surrounded by amazing views, food, and people! My favorite part was scuba diving in Santorini. How many people get to brag about that?! I'm glad I brought my walking shoes- I got over 10,000 steps in everyday LOL. I enjoyed utilizing the public transportation, but for a new traveler it can be overwhelming. Throughout the trip, we immersed ourselves with all that Greece has to offer- and it offers SO MUCH! Each day we learned something new. I would highly recommend the Greece trip and Bookbag tours!

I had an amazing time! We saw so many beautiful places. The hotels were nice and all the leaders and other teachers were wonderful! I am so glad I was able to go on this trip and I would definitely travel with bookbag tours again!

The trip to France with BBT was an absolute dream come true! I had an amazing experience, including everything from the travel arrangements, the group of educators, the food, the schools, the side trips, and the group leaders. This trip was a once in a lifetime experience and I am so glad that BBT was able to make it a reality (even through multiple reschedules!). Communication was great and I always felt prepared for whatever was coming next. Meeting a whole group of new teachers (both from the states and from France) was truly the best part of the trip. I made connections I will treasure for a lifetime!

I did not know what to expect when my daughter suggested that we join Bookbag Tours for a trip to Finland. I had never traveled out of the country before so it sounded exciting. It was postponed due to covid for 2 years but it was well worth the wait. Traveling with Bookbag tours removed so much travel stress that all I had to do was enjoy. Shaunda was an amazing leader. She kept our group where we needed to be, when we needed to be there. Petteri was an amazing home town leader, host and teacher. We really got the opportunity to not just learn about the education system, but about the culture of Finland as well. No question was off limits, and we had a lot! Traveling with a like minded group was so much fun. I highly recommend exploring the world with Bookbag Tours.
