BALI NOMADIC DIVE & TREK

This 12-night safari follows the normal structure of the Abyss Safari but splits focus equally between land and sea while traveling to four distinct areas of the island. Expect 14 guided dives and numerous land-based activities, including reaching the summit of two active volcanoes. The dives will be handled from our custom-built dive boat, allowing our team to give you a liveaboard level of service while still having the joys of a land-based safari.

This safari is suitable for all levels of divers and non-divers, or we could even plan to do a variety of PADI Courses during the trip. Due to the increase in land activities, this trip is perfect if you want to get some dives in during your holiday, but diving is not your primary reason for traveling to Bali.

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 coral garden will charm everyone snorkeling or diving the island.

Pemuteran

The topography of Pemuteran Bay is comprised of seamounts or artificial reef created by a local initiative fifteen years ago. What’s special around here? Macro from frogfish, electric clams, halgerdas, nembrothas chromodoriss nudibranchs, seahorses and more.

Bajul Bay

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

Tulamben

Made famous by the USAT Liberty wreck, this village is situated at the base of Mount Agung and allows us to encounter numerous bumphead parrotfish, travellies, groupers, ghost pipefishes, morray eels, garden eels, ruban eels and much more. Dive sites such as 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 scorpionfishes, pygmy seahorses, gloomy tambja, hawksbill turtles and ribbon eels await us. Dive some of the most fish-abundant artificial reefs and walls of Bali in the north of Amed. Eexplore one of its bays by night to encounter the creatures we can’t see during the day. Japanese Wreck, Lipah, Bunutan, Jemeluk Bay and the Pyramids are just a few of the choices for dive sites.

Volcanoes

MOUNT BATUR

Mount Batur is only 1,717 meters above sea level, but it’s still impressive—not because of its height, but because of the crater that reaches over 14 kilometers in diameter. The last eruption was in 1917, claiming lives and causing the relocation of thousands of Balinese.

GUNUNG AGUNG

At an elevation of 3,031 meters, Mount Agung is the highest volcano in Bali. Agung seems to be perfectly conic from the distance even though it has a large, deep crater. Many tourists climb to visit the mother temple of Bali, Pura Besakih, which is situated on the slope of the volcano. The last eruption in 1963 did a lot of damage to the surrounding area but missed the mother temple. Locals consider the event a miracle.

KAWAH IJEN

Mostly known as the Ijen Plateau or Ijen Volcano, this iconic volcano is situated on the west coast of Java. Ijen has a lot to offer: a view over a spectacular turquoise lake at the bottom of the crater, blue flames coming out of the ground and an army of local works extracting huge pieces of sulfur. The ascent is done at night and can be quite cold at the 2,368 meters of elevation. The last magmatic eruption occurred in 1817; although, other smaller “phreatic” eruptions have occurred more often in the last 50 years.
