All you need to know to dive Nusa Penida
Insurance & Emergencies
We have liability insurance but this does not cover you in case anything were to happen underwater. Contact us to register you with DAN short term plan (up to 30 days), which is very affordable.
There are 2 recompression chambers in Bali and various hospitals including in Sanur.
NDL & Safety procedures
We do not allow decompression diving. When using your dive computer, we ask that you signal your guide or instructor when you reach 10 min to NDL so we can adjust the dive profile. Our maximum dive time is 60 minutes.
Our boats are equipped with oxygen, marine radio, life jackets and first aid.
The waters around Nusa Penida are ever changing and we experience quite big changes in temperatures when diving Nusa Penida. The warmest season is from November to May when most dives sites in Nusa Penida have a temperature between 26 and 28°C.
The colder season is from June to October, where on some dives sites you might experience temperatures below 20°C. During that time, we recommend warmer wetsuit if you are bringing your own equipment. We provide 5mm wetsuits and full boots, as well as a hood if you wish.
Diving with manta rays
We are very lucky to have a resident manta ray population in Nusa Penida. On some Nusa Penida dive sites such as Manta Point and Manta Bay, we have regular manta ray sightings.
However, please note that access to these dive sites is dependent on weather conditions (swell, wind and rain). We cannot guarantee in advance that on a given day we will be able to go, the safety of our boats and customers always comes first.
You can find a code of conduct for diving in the marine park here.
Weather and seasons
While Indonesia is warm and mostly sunny all year long, we do experience some seasonal changes. March to November is dry season, where it doesn’t rain much basically! December to March is rainy season. We dive all year long and the rain rarely prevents us from going out. However if you are visiting Nusa Penida during these months, you will most likely experience rain in the evening and sometimes during the day.
All our dive equipment is regularly serviced and tested.
We use standard 12L tanks that can fit both DIN and Yoke regulators. We also offer rental of 15L and 8L tanks.
We use Mares open-heels fins with boots, as well as various brands of masks to fit all faces.
We also have kid’s equipment available.
We do not offer rental equipment as a stand-alone service.
Dive computers are provided for all recreational PADI courses. They are not included in your standard rental equipment for fun diving, but you can rent one for 150,000 IDR per day. Your dive guide or instructor will always have a dive computer. We offer Suunto Zoop, Mares Puck or Shearwater Peregrine for rental computer.
