  • Choice of 2 or 3 dives

    • 3-dive day: we do two dives before having lunch on the boat, and then a third dive before returning to Sanur.
    • 2-dive day: we normally have lunch after the first dive and enjoy some sunbathing before jumping back in for the second dive.

    Please note: We always plan for one of the dives to be at a manta site (Manta Point or Manta Bay) however this is not always possible due to sea conditions.

Why Choose Two Fish for your nusa penida diving trip

Our Two Fish dive service includes:
  • As a PADI 5* Dive Center your safety is our main concern, and our dive equipment is fully maintained.
  • We dive in small groups of no more than four guests per experienced dive guide, organised according to air consumption and dive experience. We also like long dives, we just ask you to surface after 75mins or on 40bar.
  • Our dive guides are expert guides, PADI Certified Dive and eco-friendly. We operate a no-touch policy.
  • We have oxygen and first aid available on every diving trip.
  • We have a “wash and store service” – all dive gear is loaded onto boats in the morning, and removed and washed after your diving, so all you need to do is DIVE.
  • We organise a hotel pick-up/drop service from/to your hotel giving you a hassle free day that you can enjoy to the fullest!

Nusa Penida Diving Highlights

Nusa Penida is the largest (17km long) of 3 islands; the others are Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan.

Its a short 30-45 minute boat ride from Sanur harbour, and while Nusa Penida dive sites are perhaps best known for Manta rays and Mola-Mola, the diving here actually offers some of the best dive sites in Bali in terms of corals and marinelife.

The majority of diving at Nusa Penida is drift diving and, as the currents are not always predictable, you need to listen to your guide’s briefing and follow him underwater. Sites that are popular here include Manta Point, Manta Bay, Crystal Bay, Toyapakeh, PED, and SD.

Please note: the Mola Mola season runs from July-Oct but Manta Rays are seen all year around.

Our favourite dive sites

day-trips to Nusa Penida/Nusa Lembongan

Manta Point

The site that made Penida famous! The plankton rich waters here attract the mantas all year round, sometimes seven or eight at a time, though even one is a fantastic sight. We rarely dive more than 15m deep at this site as along with the main attract of the mantas, turtles, nurse sharks, bamboo sharks and blue-spotted rays are regularly sighted at this depth, when the sea conditions are calm and favourable, it’s a dive to be savoured.

Manta Bay

Manta Bay is a shallow bay with a stunning backdrop. Being rich in plankton it attracts manta rays all year round. The dive has a maximum depth of 12m and the coral bottom, with its gullies and swim-throughs, is an interesting distraction from the manta action going on above. Similar to Manta Point, we cannot get to this site every day, but it is closer and more protected than Manta Point, so is fast becoming a very popular dive.

Toyapakeh

The ‘jewel’ of Penida, Toyapakeh means salt water in Balinese and is the richest site in Penida. It is a divers’ favourite as you often find yourself swimming through school after school of colourful fish of every variety, including the red tooth triggerfish, giant trevallies and batfish. It has a steep wall to the south, terraces with huge hard coral formations in the bay and a shelving reef in the north that drops off gently all the way to 190m! The density of coral, sponge and fish life is incredible, even the infamous pygmy seahorse is occasionally spotted here. All this plus occasional larger pelagics such as hammerhead sharks, mantas and sunfish.

Crystal Bay

Also known as Penida Bay, the ‘Crystal’ in Crystal Bay refers to the fantastic visibility normally experienced here, which can reach over 40m on a good day. Crystal Bay is certainly one of the area’s most popular dive sites and is a favourite of the visiting mola mola (ocean sunfish) from August-October. The rock in the middle of the bay has very steep drop offs to the south and west and an amazing shelf in the north that is carpeted with wrinkled soft corals in the shallows. A healthy reef, an interesting cave, huge table coral and hundreds of fish of all shapes and sizes – there is not much that this dive site cannot offer!

Pura Ped, Pura Mas Gading & Buyuk

These three sites are found side by side on Nusa Penida and share similar sloping reef topography. The colourful reef is made even more interesting with big, randomly placed barrel sponges and coral bommies. Schools of redtooth triggerfish, fusiliers, butterflyfish and drummers compete for passing food that rides the ocean currents. Turtles, rays, sea snakes and the occasional mola mola distract divers from the multitude of smaller creatures hiding amongst the corals, such as scorpionfish and frogfish.
