/// what is the diving like?

Some of the best diving around Bali can be found around Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan, 15 kilometres and 30mins east of Sanur. The islands are a marine protected area so the coral is in great shape offering divers the chance to see Manta Rays and Mola-Mola, as well as Turtles, Reef Sharks, Trevally’s, Napoleon Wrasse, Dolphins, and if we’re lucky Wobbegongs, Bamboo Sharks and Thresher Sharks. There is also have a great variety of macro life such as Nudibranchs, Ribbon Eels, Leaf Scorpion Fish and even Blue Ringed Octopus.

/// what’s the temperature like?

The temperature of the waters around Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembonan can vary quite alot depending on the time of year and the dive sites. During Nov-June the water is on average 27 degrees at all the dive sites. During July-October the temperature can plummet to a chilling 13 degrees Celsius, it is therefore highly recommended that you bring along a warm suit if you are coming at this time with your own gear:

  • the chilliest site is Crystal Bay where the Mola-mola’s frequent

  • the Manta Ray dive sites are often cool, but not as cold as Crystal Bay, with temperatures down to 23 degrees possible
  • on the other sites at this time it is still possible to experience thermoclines, so you could go from 28 to 20 degrees pretty quickly!

/// What experience do you need?

Nusa Penida is open to all levels of diver, however due to challenging conditions we recommend that if you have not been diving in the past six months then you’ll need to do a quick refresher with us in the pool the afternoon before, or do a day of diving at any other location with us first. This is for safety reasons, the sites of Nusa Penida can have strong currents and a lot of surge.

The use of a dive computer is mandatory. If you don’t have your own, don’t worry! You can rent a dive computer from us for a small fee.


You can rent a camera and underwater housing for the day for just $20, and we’ll transfer all of the photos to you when we’re back at the dive centre at the end of the day. Please request this when you book so we can reserve the camera for you.

If you don’t have dive insurance then we can provide cover from as little as US$6 per day, just mention it when you check in at the dive centre.

/// Is it good for snorkelers?

Yes! The reefs are beautiful, and you still have a chance to see Manta Rays even when you snorkel. The boat will keep a close eye on you and will pick you up when you are ready to get back on the boat.

Price = US$ 65pp
incl full set of snorkeling equipment and lunch

/// Indonesia Dive Safari


As we have dive resorts in 5 locations around Indonesia, visiting us means that you can book a Dive Safari of more than one dive location with the same operator in one holiday.

Manado This is is only a 3-hour flight from Bali, and is where you will find the best wall-diving in Asia around Bunaken, and the best muck diving in the world around Lembeh Straits.
Lembongan We have a dive center on Nusa Lembongan itself, only a 30-min boat ride from Sanur. Described as “How Sanur was 30 years ago”, with fantastic reefs and manta’s only 10-20mins away it offers a great relaxing holiday.
Lombok You can add-on some diving in Lombok, its only a 30-min flight or 3hour ferry ride from Bali which makes it easy to dive both the Gili’s and the South Gili’s.

/// When is the best time to dive?

In the months from July to late October Mola-Mola spottings become common and this is the peak time in the season to spot them, especially at Crystal Bay.

Throughout the year sightings of Manta Rays are possible, in our experience there is about a 70% chance of seeing Manta Rays at the two sites.

Between December and March both Bali and Nusa Lembongan & Nusa Pendia experience some rain, but we do not have a typical monsoon and we are not affected at these sites by river run-off, so visibility remains good.

Please note that the schedule may change if weather does not permit, and if there are too many boats on Crystal Bay then we will change sites because diving Crystal Bay is very dangerous in these conditions.
