Odyssey is a touring submarine, operated by Submarine Safaris Asia, Ltd. which takes passengers to see and admire the underwater realm of Amuk Bay, near Candidasa. The battery-powered submarine carries up to 36 passengers in its single air-conditioned compartment.
The tours can be enjoyed by all ages, especially those looking to enjoy the underwater beauty of tropical marine life, but do not have the expertise or diving experience, or simply don't want to bother getting wet.
Prior to boarding, a team of instructors brief passengers on safety instructions as life jackets are distributed. From the shore, a boat transports guests to the sub. Photos are taken on the deck before climbing down through the top hatch and removing the vests. Inside, wide chairs are lined up through the centre of the vessel.

The smooth operating battery-powered submarine carries up to 36 passengers in its single air-conditioned compartment. Side portholes enable passengers to view the marine life at depths of over 40m. The submarine ride is a fun feature for families, as kids get to match the types of fish with the posters inside the cabin.
Usually included in the tours are hotel transfers, a barbecue lunch, and the 45min submarine ride, as well as safety equipment and guides. The submarine dive location is just north of the Padang Bai turn-off on the road to Candidasa, in the eastern part of the island, featuring a clean, black-sand beach with a mountainous backdrop.
During the submerged vessel’s usual route around Amuk Bay, the underwater views are alive with bright and colourful tropical fish, corals, and occasional stingrays and sea turtles. Along the journey, you will pass coral plantations that are part of a coral regeneration project to maintain the reef and marine habitat in the area.
Good to Know about Odyssey Submarine
From the centre of Denpasar, Kuta or Sanur, Amuk Bay can be reached in two hours. It makes for an easy day trip, or as part of an East Bali exploration, as it is on the way to Amed – another favourite retreat in the island’s east.
After each dive, passengers enjoy a barbecue lunch back at shore at a dedicated Wantilan restaurant, with freshly grilled seafood and Indonesian and local cuisine. Each passenger is awarded a submarine dive certificate with a photo taken prior to the dive as a souvenir.
The submarine is battery operated and runs smooth and silent, posing minimum threat to the surrounding marine environment. The 17m-long vessel is fully air-conditioned and features soft music during the dives, providing a calm ride for the passengers as they admire the underwater beauty through the porthole windows.
