Your day of diving with us

Dive sites in Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan

Diving in Nusa Penida is wonderfully varied and the reefs around the island are in excellent condition! The dive sites in Nusa Penida offer different experiences, from drift dives to pelagic and from walls to slopes! 

 

Manta rays can be seen all year round and we dive with them often, conditions and swell permitting. This is one of the highlights of diving in Nusa Penida!
To see the elusive Mola-mola, the best period is usually between June and October as the water gets colder. This is also our peak diving season here in Nusa Penida.

 

Please keep in mind that during these months, the water can get as cool as 18 to 23 degrees Celsius; if you are diving with your own equipment we recommend using a 5mm wetsuit and maybe a hood and rashguard if you are sensitive to the cold! We provide 5mm long wetsuits with our rental equipment, so you are comfortable during your dives!
