You get a great experience when you learn to scuba dive in Nusa Lembongan. The large plateaus of south Nusa Penida provide the cleaning and feeding stations for the manta rays and it is possible to dive these manta dive sites on your Open Water course.
The most popular scuba diving course in the world is the PADI Open Water Course, and we can run this for you on Nusa Lembongan over 3 or 4 days.
The gentle sloping reefs of the north coast of Pendia provide beautiful coral reefs starting at just 2 meters underwater and covering the slope all the way to the bottom. These mixing hard and soft corals, provide homes to many small critters like nudibranch, crabs and shrimps while also providing a healthy living environment for many schooling reef fish. Off the reef and cruising in the blue water, it is possible to see the large fish like; giant trevally, turtles, napoleon wrasse and barracuda.
The large plateaus of the south provide the cleaning and feeding stations for the manta rays and this where the two manta dive sites are located. Although not as rich in coral diversity as the north, the plateaus do offer divers interesting rock formations covered in sponge & coral. The highlight of the southern dive sites however is the chance to see the manta rays feeding in the shallows or being cleaned by the reef fish.
The schedule for your course is quite flexible but in general it starts with theory and pool sessions on the first two days, followed by the 4 open water dives over the last two days of the course, with 2 dives on each day. Normally you will have some free time in the afternoons on the 3rd and 4th day, this can be used to explore the island or catch up on any theory, exams or pool that is needed.
The theory sections will be split between watching videos in our relaxing area on a comfy beanbag and spending time in our purpose built class room with your instructor. Our on site swimming pool gives you the chance to easily practice your skills and get comfortable in the water over 2 depth levels. Once finished with the theory and pool, you are ready for the open water dives. All most all dive sites around Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Pendia can be used for the Open Water course. It is also possible to dive at one of the manta dive sites for dive 2, 3, or 4 of the course. Crystal bay will be likely one of the dive sites used for the course as it offers a large, shallow, sandy area, which gives students the chance to gain more control over their swimming and buoyancy. This sandy area also provides a comfortable environment for practicing and completing skills.
With your theory already completed before you get here, the first day will be spent in the pool, two open water dives the second day, and then two more open water dives on the last/third day.
