NUSA PENIDA

Diving around Nusa Penida is just fantastic! It offers incredible dive sites where you have great chances to see the famous and rare Mola Mola also called Oceanic Sunfish, majestic Manta Ray’s, Turtles… the beauty of Indonesia’s most famous dive sites.

The Mola Mola usually live very deep (and therefore not easy to see) but during the months of September, October and November they come up to shallow waters to be cleaned of their parasites. Every year some divers get lucky and see Mola Mola outside the normal season … maybe you’re the one ?

Nusa Penida dive sites

Crystal Bay is a very good dive site in Bali but reserved to experienced divers as the current can be quite strong and downward. It is THE place to look for the famous Mola Mola in Nusa Penida (Oceanic Sunfish) during the season (September to November). The coral is also very beautiful around 15 to 20 m but to have a chance to find the Mola Mola you will have to go down deeper around 30 m. Always be careful of the downward current!

Many would say this dive site is probably the most famous in Bali. Everybody talks about Manta Point every day, all around the dive centres. The highlight of Manta Point is without a doubt the majestic Manta Rays which can be seen all year round. The Mantas usually swim around the cleaning station located at approximately 6-8 meters which is where most of the divers are enjoying their time as well. The more experienced divers adventure in a more deep dive going even down to approximately 25 meters for more variety.

Manta Point can sometimes be a tricky dive site if you’re not an advanced diver so that’s why for our less experienced divers we choose often Manta Bay. All though usually the Mantas here are younger than the ones seen in Manta Point, it’s an excellent dive site for beginners and first encounters with the ocean.

S.D. Point is nice and easy drift dive in Nusa Penida over a coral plateau around 12 to 18 m deep. The coral on this dive site is really beautiful and flying over without any effort is an incredible experience. On this dive as you cover a long distance you can see all kind of fishes including reef sharks, Mola Mola or a Whale Shark if you are lucky! More often you will encounter various pelagic fishes.

Further more, it’s an excellent site for a deep dive.
