Experience Nusa Penida’s living reef on this snorkelling excursion from Bali.
Indonesia has the largest and most biodiverse coral reefs, mangroves, and seagrasses of any country in the world – discover it first hand on this snorkelling excursion to Nusa Penida. A sanctuary for over 250 resident reef species and a range of visiting pelagics, head out from neighbouring Bali for your chance to swim with Mola Mola, Mantra Rays and turtles, too!
This activity is run & operated from Nusa Lembongan – with transfers organised from Bali (pick-up included). Snorkelling will take place in Nusa Penida across three dive sites, the most popular of which being Manta Bay, Crystal Bay or Toyapakeh, Mangrove point, Gamat bay, Toyapakeh Wall or Mangrove Point.
Going to the different dive sites depends on the weather.
Your day starts with a morning pick up from your accommodation, travelling to Sanur port for a fast boat to Lembongan island. From here, you’ll meet your skipper & marine guide for a snorkelling excursion in Nusa Penida. A perfect hassle-free package that’s suitable for all ages and abilities, experience some of the world’s best marine environments on this full day tour. During the course of the excursion, you’ll get three opportunities to snorkel at iconic locations like Manta Bay, Crystal Bay or Toyapekeh. Home to millions of marine flora & fauna, the shallow coral gardens are the ideal setting to explore the reef in total safety – swimming with graceful manta rays or meeting the sea’s weirdest pelagic – the sunfish (Mola Mola). After a traditional Indonesian buffet back at the beach, the afternoon activity is up to you – choosing a sea kayaking excursion at the area’s neighbouring mangroves, or an island sightseeing tour. Too good to say goodbye? Why not stay awhile. Stay on Lembongan island a little longer and opt for an open return ticket back to Bali.
Suitable for children and adults alike, snorkelling at Manta Bay is based on weather conditions on the day. If unsuitable, alternative locations across Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan or Nusa Ceningan will be offered. Please note that pelagic sightings are seasonal and cannot be guaranteed.
