Minimal Participant :1 pax
If you don’t want to sit in the car and drive for 4 hours to Menjangan or 3 hours to Tulamben and want to be back at your hotel early, then you can consider this special offer as an option. We will pick you up from your hotel at 7.45 – 8.00 am, and our dive boat, Explorer II will take you to Nusa Penida, an island located 18 Nm east of Sanur in 30 minutes.
Nusa Penida offers some of best diving to be found anywhere. Most of the dive sites around Nusa Penida and its two small sister islands – Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan will be a drift dive and the current can reach more than 4 knots. Upwelling from the deep water south of Bali, keep the visibility in these areas clear, but can also form thermo clines with temperatures can be dropping down to 22°.
Drift diving and pelagic are the main attraction here and you have a good chance to see jacks, mackerel, tuna, turtle, mantas, and perhaps the most unusual pelagic visitor to Nusa Penida (August – September) is the unique mola-mola or oceanic sunfish, a mysterious large flattened fish with elongated dorsal and vertical fins and a lumpy growth instead of a tail fin.
