Our exciting scuba diving trips to Nusa Penida and Lembongan offer some of the best diving in Bali. These two dry limestone islands about 20 km off the South East coast of Bali are reached by fast speedboat in 45 minutes from Sanur.
The healthiest corals in Bali and home to a huge variety of reef fish. Great for drift diving and the best place to see Mola Mola in the season and Manta Rays all year round. Dramatic above-water scenery.
Usual temperature is around 28°C, but the strong currents and sharp thermoclines can occasionally bring it down to the low 20°C. Good visibility. Not uncommon strong currents and swells.
Special safety note
Because of strong currents, cold thermoclines and deep depths around Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Penida we require all divers to have 25 dives experience and to have dived recently. We also use in-water GPS-enabled VHF radios (‘Nautilus Lifeline‘) to allow our Divemasters to talk directly to our boat crew if they surface out of sight of the boat after a dive in strong currents or in case of poor visibility. This is a fantastic safety innovation and we’re proud to say we were one of the first dive centers in Bali to use these devices.

Special offer packages to Bali’s three best dive sites
Manta Ray sightings are common around Nusa Penida
NUSA PENIDA NORTH COAST (FROM SD TO BATU NUNGGUL)
The most dived area of Nusa Penida, and rightly so. Rich & healthy stands of coral which are home to an amazing variety of reef fish. Good coral diversity including long spiralling Wire Corals, Tables and Domes. A great place to see Mola (Sunfish) in the season and the best drift diving in Bali. This entire North Coast is one long stretch of healthy reef with at least five distinct dive sites.
The best coral in Bali, clear waters, towering bommies and a rich slope. Pufferfish and Giant Trevally. Anything & everything has at sometime been seen here; Mola mola, Shark, Manta and other Rays and lots of big ocean fish. Sometimes fierce & unpredictable currents, sometimes still and gentle.
CRYSTAL BAY (ALSO KNOWN AS PENIDA BAY)
Inside the bay is sheltered from the currents with a wonderful array of soft corals. Move outside the bay and feel the current pick up, sometimes trying to pull you down the sand & coral slope. Stick with our experienced guides and stay close to the reef. These currents bring with them good chances of encounters with the larger schooling ocean fish and Mola Mola in the season. Usually great visibility here and often very cold. In the corner of the bay is a small bat cave you can surface in and take a breath.
GAMAT BAY & TOYAPAKEH WALL
Inside Gamat Bay is truly beautiful; below the crystal clear water lies a colourful carpet of both hard & soft corals, home to a variety of Nudibranchs and other macro delights as well as some big Groupers. Leaving the gentle waters of the bay let the current take you as you drift along the wall of the channel between Nusa Penida & Nusa Cenigan. The currents can be very swift. Keep good group contact, stick close to the wall. Keep one eye to the channel for Sharks and big fish.
Further than most other dive sites in Bali. Not only mantas but frequent Nurse Shark sightings and lots of soft corals. You need to be flexible because its exposed location means that sometimes the conditions are too rough for the boat to make it down there and on arrival giant swells can make diving impossible. But if conditions are good & the Mantas arrive it is well worth the extra effort to get there. Above water sheer cliffs are a dramatic sight.
MANGROVE (ALSO KNOWN AS JACKFISH POINT)
Lined with Mangrove trees along Nusa Lembongan’s north coast, this is a good long site for drifting in the current. The nearly flat profile – in contrast to the steep slopes at most of the other sites around Nusa Penida – gives a wide-angle viewpoint. Lobsters are among the most commonly seen marine life here and various Triggerfish, huge Pufferfish and Surgeons. Be careful the gentle slope doesn’t fool you into drifting towards the open ocean; stick with your guide.
