From Bali: Swim with Manta Rays in Nusa Penida

1. From Bali: Swim with Manta Rays in Nusa Penida

Head for the island of Nusa Penida and embark on a snorkeling adventure. Take advantage of 3 different stops to swim with Manta Rays, enjoy lunch on the beach, then spend the afternoon exploring the mangrove forest. Benefit from pick-up at your hotel in selected areas of Bali or wait directly at the ferry office (depending on the option selected), and then journey to Nusa Penida, located 20 kilometers off the southeast coast. The largest of Bali's 3 sister islands (Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Penida, and Nusa Ceningan), Nusa Penida is much less developed and remains home to abundant and pristine nature. Marvel at the dramatic landscape and steep cliffs along the coast as you make your way to some of the island's best snorkel sites. Upon arrival at the protected bay of Manta Bay, discover an ocean rich with plankton that attracts beautiful reef manta rays that can sometimes measure up to an impressive 4 or 5 meters in wing span. Go to 3 of the best snorkel sites on the island, including popular spots (depending on conditions) such as Crystal Bay, Toyapakeh, and Gamat Bay. As the strong swells of the Indian Ocean can impact conditions, the situation will be carefully monitored to take you to where it is safe to swim with the rays less than 1.5 meters from the surface of the sea. If conditions are not suitable, your snorkeling itinerary will be adjusted accordingly, as your safety is always the number one priority. Following your magical snorkeling adventure, break for a delicious beachside lunch at Paradise Beach on Nusa Lembongan. The lunch is served as an Indonesian food buffet. Then, get the chance to explore the mangrove forest in the afternoon by kayak, stand-up paddle board, or private gondola.

Had a great dive trip here. Parented booked easy enough. Paid up in full on arrival. We go lucky and had a private diving trip in the end just us and a dive master. LocTed in the south east of the island. Easy access I’d your local. We had to drive 45-1 hour via moped from Ubud. Then 1 hour they drove us to the Mir north western coast port to start the dive. Headed off in a small boat. Every is set up for us, as it’s how locals earn pocket, so that was very kind. I felt bad for being lazy. Two dives on a gorgeous day. Dive master gave us a quick briefing before each dive. The view was clear and beautiful, for to see some lovely sites. Saw reef sharks which was fun. We both had. A great time and it was well organised by our guide. A spot do lunch at a set restaurant, which had a very limited menu, BUT the food was great so no complaints: cheeky beer before heading back to the dive site. We’ll worth it, and a must do in Bali. For me, the only reason to go to Bali is dive! Do it!

We paid for the pick and drop off. Totally worth the trip from beginning to end. Our driver (Dewi? I’m butchering the spelling) was friendly, chatty and a great driver. Our group who was ran by Bo, our dive guide, Carlos, the underwater videographer and Madeh the boat driver made sure everyone was well looked after and had a great time. Buffet for lunch was yummy. The whole experience was handled really well and my girlfriend and I had a wonderful experience. Highly recommended! You can buy the photos and videos from the guys afterwards for a reasonable price. Awesome experience!

Most amazing thing we did in Bali! Snorkelling was great but it was too rough to see the Manta rays. It is definitely still worth doing, we saw a sea turtle instead. We got picked up on time, the lunch was good and the friendly guides really accommodated my youngest boy aged 6. So much fun!

Good event good crew! They knew lots of good spots
