Fun Dive ( Certified Diver From Lembongan )
All dives are guided dives with a maximum ratio of four guests to one Instructor / Divemaster.
Our daily trips usually include two dives, along with the coasts of either Nusa Lembongan or Nusa Penida. When conditions are favorable, adventures down to Manta Point or Secret Manta and also to the east coast of Nusa Penida are possible.
Lunch is provided on the boat during the surface interval, along with mineral water & hot drinks.
We continue to explore the three islands of Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Ceningan, and Nusa Penida, looking for some of the very best dive sites around Bali. Having discovered a new Manta feeding area, we now have 18 different dive sites to which we take guests, and are still finding new spots where we see some incredible creatures. With our professional and highly valued local staff, we offer first class diving in spectacular and exciting environments.
Diving around the three islands has a reputation from guidebooks as being difficult because of the currents. Most of the dives are drift dives, but the advantage that we have been based on Lembongan is that we can dive around high tides which minimize the current. This means we often have calm waters in which to enjoy the spectacular coral and marine life.

The Mola Mola or Oceanic Sunfish is one of the wonders of the deep, rich waters around Bali. This 1000 kg behemoth is the heaviest known bony fish. Whilst these magnificent yet mysterious creatures make their home in Bali all year round, the best time to see them in July to October when they are frequently seen by our experienced dive guides at the cleaning stations around the 3 islands that make up the Nusa Penida dive sites. Just imagine a 3.5-meter ball that has been squashed sideways and you will start to envisage this strange but wonderful creature.
This huge but harmless wonder is an incredible sight as it patiently waits to be cleaned of its parasites by schools of colorful threadfin bannerfish. Newly hatched sunfish are 2.5cm in length and raised on a diet of jellyfish they achieve a body weight 60 million times larger. Our Mola Mola Dive Trips depart every day during the Sunfish Season. It is recommended that you spend at least 3 days diving around Nusa Penida area to give yourself the very best chance of interacting with these magnificent creatures
