One of the things that the island of Bali is famous for and which attracts tourists from all over the world here is diving. Immersion in the crystal clear waters of the tropical sea, acquaintance with corals growing everywhere and schools of fish of all the colors of the rainbow, the opportunity to observe the vibrant marine life – all this means an unforgettable experience in the life of any person.
There are many diving centers on the coast where you will be instructed before scuba diving. There are also centers with Russian-speaking trainers. The cost of one dive can be different, it is better to clarify it on the spot, since it depends on factors such as transfer from the hotel, remoteness of diving places, equipment rental, meals and more. You can save a little if you buy a service package from a diving center. Additionally, they will offer you professional underwater photo and video shooting.
We recommend renting a boat for a few hours or one day and visiting various diving sites. The rental price also includes diving equipment (masks, fins). You can dive into the warm waters of Bali right from the side of the yacht!
A popular place for diving is the island of Nusa Penida and the adjacent islands, which are half an hour away by boat from the port in Sanur.
Both professional divers and beginners can swim off the coast of this island. There are many places to dive. Coral reefs of the coast have become home for a variety of inhabitants:
Manta Point – a place where giant stingrays come, since there is a large amount of plankton that they feed on. Stingrays are familiar to people, but still do not swim too close to them. Their wingspan reaches 4-5 meters, and their weight is about two tons. These are real marine giants and you can admire them even from a distance. In addition, you can look at other inhabitants of the deep sea: mollusks, crabs, cuttlefish and turtles.
Another place known to all divers is Crystal Bay – the waters here are incredibly clean and warm, despite the strong currents, visibility is up to 25 meters. In the middle of the bay, there is a small rocky island. You can see here the sunfish, which can be up to three meters long, clownfish, lyretail anthias, angelfish and many others.
The small Gamat Bay is rich in coral thickets, and clear water will allow you to see everything in great detail. In the coral reefs live sea bass, surgeonfish etc. Reef sharks and turtles often appear here.
Any diving center or school on the coast of Bali offers diving tours to the island of Nusa Lembongan. This is the second largest island, part of the Nusa islands group, which is located southeast of Bali. Tourists come here from Bali – a boat trip takes about half an hour, but it is also possible to get from the nearest islands of Gili and Nusa Penida.
The reasons why Lembongan is so popular are quite simple – there are clear waters and a rich underwater world. On the island, you can learn how to dive and get a license in the Jungut Batu. Service prices everywhere are similar; the only difference is in the system of issuing certificates. PADI certificate is in demand.
Lembongan suits the best for novice divers. Sea life can be observed almost on the coast – there are flat reefs. Of course, there are several areas where diving is only possible in perfect weather.
The dives take place off the island of Penida in the popular diving spots of Manta Bay and Crystal Bay.
In the local waters, you will meet:
Sometimes whale sharks also swim here.
Another very attractive place for scuba diving is the coastal waters of Nusa Dua. The diving spots are located next to the resort area, in addition, a huge variety of fish, lionfish, seahorses and mollusks live here.
Nusa Dua waters are ideal for beginners and those who have not been diving for a long time.
Fish of the brightest colors, sponges, sea turtles densely populate coral reefs. The currents here are slow but unpredictable, and visibility is up to 15 meters. Diving in local waters is the best with an experienced instructor. The scuba diving depth is from three to five meters.
Dives are made from a boat. Diving centers usually collect groups of tourists, train and take them to the sea, where they, together with an experienced instructor, do diving.
Yacht renting will allow you to enjoy diving to the fullest. You can visit the diving spots that interest you, immerse yourself in warm clear water right from the board, and then after sea adventures just enjoy your vacation.
