Dive Sites

Menjangan Island

Situated in the protected area of Bali Barat National Park, the walls surrounding the island are covered with gigantic gorgonian sea fans and soft coral. Clear water, a white-sand beach and a coral garden will charm everyone snorkeling or diving the island.

Pemuteran

The topography of the bay at Pemuteran is comprised of seamounts or artificial reef created by a local initiative 15 years ago. What’s special around here? Macro life from frogfishes, electric clams, halgerdas, nembrothas, chromodoris, nudibranchs, seahorses and more.

Bajul Bay

Surrounded by mangroves, this bay barely sees any waves throughout the year and is recognized as one of the healthiest reefs in Bali. It is also home to the colorful mandarin fish.

Tulamben

Made famous by the USAT Liberty wreck, this village situated at the base of Mount Agung allows us to encounter numerous bumphead parrotfish, travellies, groupers, ghost pipefish, morray eels, garden eels, ruban eels and much more. Dive sites like Alamanda, Seraya, Coral Garden, Drop Off, and Kubu’s wreck bring a lot of diversity and contrast in terms of color and a black-sand beach.

Amed

Leaf scorpionfish, pygmy seahorses, gloomy tambja, hawksbill turtles and ribbon eels await for us. Dive some of the liveliest artificial reefs and walls of the island in the north of Amed. Explore one of its bays by night to encounter the creatures we can’t see during daylight. Japanese wreck, Lipah, Bunutan, Jemeluk Bay and the Pyramids are just a few of the choices for dive sites.

Padang Bay 

This area has numerous choices at our disposal. Blue Lagoon with a white-sand bottom and Coral Garden offer a great chance to enjoy turtles, cuttlefish and several species of nudibranchs. Jepun is an artificial reef with a wreck that was sunk as part of the reef to attract rays, eels, frogfishes, cuttlefish and much more.  When we dive The Jetty, make sure to have your camera fully charged for the frogfish, stonefish, waspfish, flabelina, seamoth, flying gurnard and a few other surprises.

Tepekong/Mimpang Islands

These are a group of small islands and submerged rocks off the coast of Padang Bay. Underwater, it is a paradise of hard coral, cuttlefish, turtles, reef sharks, and sometimes if we are lucky, mola-mola. These sites must be dived with caution regarding the tides and require an advanced level of diving.

Nusa Penida

Famous for drift diving, manta rays and Crystal Bay, this island offers hard and soft coral and the chance to see pelagic life. From August to October, Nusa Penida offers a great chance to get close to sunfishes, also known as mola-molas. All year round, regardless of sea conditions, we can get close to reef and oceanic mantas traveling to the cleaning station of Manta Bay and Manta Point.
