This dive site is called Manta Point for a reason: it's where divers see manta rays up close in their natural habitat. Divers can dive with this pelagic, take photos of them from a safe distance and see how they feed in real time.
The boat will leave from Sanur usually before 9 am heading toward southern part of Nusa Penida island. From there the fun of dive safari looking for manta ray and mola-mola will start for the next three dives.
Evidence of dive certification is required from all divers wishing to participate in a certified dive
Depending on the location of stay the pick up time is between 7 to 7.30 unless the hotel is far far away. All guests will meet in Bali Diving headquarters for some paperwork, gear set up, and complimentary coffee or tea. From there, accompanied by designated dive guide, the group will leave for Sanur beach which is about 10-15 minutes away.
Boat ride from Sanur takes about 45 minutes. Visibility around Nusa Penida is mostly very clear but with that comes cold water around 23 celcius. Please be aware of this and pick thicker wet suit when needed. There are sets of 5mm wetsuit in various sizes from the storage room; feel free to pick one that suit best.
The dive guide will tell code of conduct when seeing manta ray or mola-mola which one of them is to look from safe distance only. Please adhere to this. Do not chase any of them even if they appear to be tame.
Our dives in Nusa Penida usually end at 4 pm in Bali Diving's office. After the driver drops off all the equipment he'll be ready to send you back to the hotel again.
