What To Expect
If you're an experienced diver looking to challenge or polish your skills, Nusa Penida's cool and startingly clear waters and sea floor littered with gorgeous corals, prolific fish, turtles, and reef sharks is just the place for you.
At Manta Point, see dramatic limestone cliffs that descend straight into the ocean. This swell can sometimes make entry impossible by mid-morning. The dive will be worth it though - aside from the Manta ray, you will also be greeted by other pelagics such as tuna and tiger mackerel that come to the area to feed. No need to worry about the Manta rays, they are typically 2 to 4 meters wide but are harmless plankton-eaters.
Discover the hard coral reef and white sand base covered with anemones and soft corals at Crystal Bay. Here you will find marine life including angelfish, sweetlips, giant frog fish and many Moorish idols.
To the north of the Bay, we come to a bat cave. Depending on conditions, you may enter the cave from underwater and surface inside, which is open to the sky. Watch out for the bats that sleep overhead. Occasionally, 2 reef sharks that are said to come to the cave, but don't worry though, they leave when you arrive! Continue on along the very deep wall where lobsters can be found living near the hard corals.
During Mola Mola season from July to mid-November, your trip will include an opportunity to dive at the Mola Mola sites. Keep an eye out for the weird but wonderful sunfish that swim in these waters!
If you do not want dive but want to accompany your group to the site, you may opt to choose the Non-Divers option. This option has the same inclusions as the Certified Driver except it will not be joining the diving part of the tour. Instead you will have free use of snorkeling gear so you may snorkel around the area.
After a day of diving, transfer back to your hotel, arriving at around 17:00.
